So we left Cedar at 3 AM on Thursday morning and drove all night, taking turns sleeping and driving. We arrived just in time to take Universal Studios by storm. Joey did survive to tell this tale :). We had a lot of fun. I'd been there once as a teenager and really liked it, but I'm glad we went without the kids because most of it is geared to the teenagers or older. We got quickly from ride to ride and were done by 5 PM. 3 hours in traffic and we made it to our hotel in San Diego.
Friday morning we did an endowment session in the San Diego Temple...it is beautiful! We spent the rest of the day at La Jolla Cove and Seaport Village. San Diego is a really nice town. I wish we had more time to just relax and explore, but more *magical* adventures were in store...


This is my "Disneyland, Disneyland!" smile. Now before you all go judging us (we left our kids with Grandma and Grandpa Anderson...) let me tell you we didn't want to go without our kids. But we went with Joe's brother Dave and Jenna and they really wanted to go. Of course we couldn't let them go alone. Well we could have, but why? We had a great day. It was fun riding all the big kid rides and made us really excited to bring our kids back...hopefully next summer.


Above you can see my "I've had enough fun" smile. You see I'm the type of vacationer that loves to have fun, but once I'm cold, tired, worn out, sore...It's not fun to me anymore. I drive myself into the ground every day...I don't need to do it on vacation too. But then there's the type that can't get enough...we survived well enough together I suppose ;) I was really glad to fall into our soft bed that night.

And the trip home... I think the picture of Dave and Jenna speaks for itself. 


Kelley and Tyler had a GREAT time at "Grandpa Pete's". Of course they got lots of sugar, time in the hot tub and loves. My grandma Kelley was there as well while they were there. She spent Monday with them doing the cutest penguins out of food...Pics will have to come later, blogger's being slow and it's past my bedtime.  Anyway, it's nice to be home again and this week is less busy than any have been in a while...just in time for me to work my fingers to the bone on Halloween costumes...wahoo!

I'm totally jealous! Looks like you guys had a wonderful time. The La Jolla cove is one of my favorite places on earth...my mom is from La Jolla and we used to go every summer and spend weeks on that beach. :)
