The week before we went on vacation was busy. Packing. Cleaning. Tying up loose ends of callings etc. We were going to be gone for 10 days. I was able to get all of that off done, but there wasn't one second of time for blogging. My friend Janna and her husband Cliff were lifesavers - they spotted us their GPS system and iPod touch (the one we bought wasn't delivered before we left). The iPod helped quite a bit but I'd say the GPS was a lifesaver for 10 days in metro Southern Cal.
Just in case you were wondering about our trip, we had just planned on Disneyland but had heard such great things about Sea World (apparently a lot of people like it better than DL) that I looked into doing both. Better to kill two birds with one stone than want to take a second SoCal trip to see everything else, right? So I found www.CityPass.com. For abour $250 each we got 2 days at Sea World, 1 day at San Diego Zoo, 3 day park hopper at Disneyland, and 1 Day at Universal Studios. 7 Days for 3 people for $750 - about $30 per day per person per park. Not too shabby.
Anyways, we were to leave Friday, stay in Vegas with family, arrive in SD on Saturday morning for Sea World. We had a great quick visit with fam Friday and Saturday morning we left at 4 am to be there when the park opened. It was the week the whole country was hit with a cold front, including San Diego, so instead of 10* in Idaho we had to live with 59* this day, which was the coldest day of the week we were there. We were just a bit chilly but grateful to escape the frostbite back home.
