Sunny San Diego

Jeff and I just got back a few days ago from a fabulous trip to San Diego. His company sends him there for a conference each year, so I tag along. This year we visited the San Diego zoo, and I was amazed. For those of you who haven't been, the above picture is from the zoo. The whole place was like a jungle, only they try to replicate different jungles from all over the world- like an Asian jungle with bamboo and pandas, or an Indian or African jungle. It was gorgeous. And I've never seen happier animals in captivity. Really. They looked happy!

We also went sailing on the bay, and I spent a day at the spa. If I didn't miss my kiddos so dang much, it would be hard to come home after a trip like that.

Oh- and now that I'm back, I'm dropping my French class! Thanks to all of you and your sound advise, I have the strength to say "no"! Hooray!

Now that looks beautiful. And not at all muggy. Can a picture really show a lack of humidity? Because that's what I'm getting out of it. Maybe I'm projecting my dream onto reality.

Sounds like it was a great trip!

How fun!!! You were off partying in San Diego while I was trying to leave a message to go running. I rather have fun in Sand Diego like you. :-)

Dru- I didn't see your bro, but I guess Jeff saw him and talked with him quite a bit. However, he was always worried that he might have been wearing one of his shirts.

Kay, I totally meant to go running while I was there- but couldn't get myself out of bed in the morning!

San Diego is fun. I absolutely love Sea World. In fact, I think I probably enjoyed it more than the kids...

Glad you're back!

Amber, I am pretty sure I need a vacation to San Diego....my one day escape to Park City was *not* enough!

One time I took our kids to the Atlanta Zoo. (A beautiful, though expensive, zoo.) Their flamingo lagoon is right at the entrance of the zoo, and that day they happened to be cleaning it. The stench was unbelievable. We could smell it long before we got to the zoo entrance and couldn't figure out what it could be. Flamingos will never be quite as lovely as they used to be....

Good for you sister. I'm glad you dropped the class. That alone deserved a day at the spa.
