Our first trip back to San Diego

'twas the day after Christmas about 8 in the morn.  I hauled all the kids out to the car with a yawn.  The car was all pack by yours truly, you see and to stay one more second was not ok with me.  
I struggled through Christmas Eve and Day all alone.  It was high time that our Daddy was home.  Not home, but with us, as we traveled down south.  In search of family, direct sunlight, and Mexican food that makes happy your mouth.
We picked up said daddy from work on our way.  All of the boys shouted hip, hip, hooray.  "Mommy is grumpy.  I'm tired of driving.  Are we there?," were all common phrases that tripped through the air.  
We drove and we stopped and we drove, drove some more.  "Geez, this is taking too long and I'm bored!"
We drove and we drove.  From morning till night.  After 14 LONG HOURS we saw Grammie's house lights.
Unload and sleep was the first thing to do and all of the rest came in a slew.
We first went to Sea World it was crowded, but fun.  The kids got to play and the shows?  We watched one.  
It was good when I got to visit my Pure Fitness Pool crew.  Everyone thought that Lucy was really cute too.
We visited Jesse's family, a first meeting for Lu.  She handled it well.  She smiled and cooed.  The boys climbed a hill and opened some presents.  Christmas extended!  I heard no objections :)
Sunday was special.  We blessed our sweet girl.  She looked so beautiful in her dress.  Flower with pearl.  My treasure: my family.  I know I can't do without.  It is now complete.  I have no breath of doubt.
Dropped Dad at the airport.  Work calls him back home.  Thank goodness the rest of us have more time to roam.  
Sister time!  I wish we could make it last longer.  All our goofy ways make our bond that much stronger!
We spent time with more friends and hiked a mountain (well, the boys anyway).  We relaxed and we played and they wanted to swim one fine day...
It lasted two seconds!  My kids yelped as the cold seeped into their hide!!  So they settled for playing outside the water, with a hose and water slide.  
All to quickly for me, our time came to an end.  We had to pack up the car and say farewell all over again.  Thank you everyone for making our trip so great!  We will be coming back soon.  I really can't wait.

Our vacation in verse.  I really can't believe I did that... on my phone even.  Writing about our travels back is a post in itself!
