San Diego Bound

Tomorrow we are heading to San Diego for a few days. It will be our first vacation together as an entire family since before Eric was born. We are staying at the wonderful "Del" on Coronado Island. It's just a hop, skip and a jump to the beach. You'd think it was almost Christmas around here -- the kids are so excited. We can no longer all fit in the van with all of Jack's equipment, so we have to take two cars - which is a bit of a bummer. The five hour drive will seem like a cake walk compared to the usual two-day, 26 hour drive to St. Louis. I'm so happy to be heading West instead of East!

We are planning a day at Sea World and a boat ride around the bay, courtesy of my brother's in-laws. Mostly, we just want to hang out on the beach and relax. I can't wait to see Jack's face when he sees the ocean for the first time. I am bringing my computer - however, I'm guessing the internet in the hotel room will be ridiculously expensive, but - if I can find a nearby Starbucks and free internet, you'll be hearing from me. If not --- you'll hear from me when we get back.

I'll leave you with this cute face -- he's bound to make this a memorable trip! (I'll try and take note of all the Eric-isms along the way.)

I hope that you guys have the best of times. How nice a family trip. The place looks beautiful. You will all have a great time.
Eric looks like he is your "joy angel". That is what I call our Olivia. She is always a happy little one making us all laugh.
Have fun.
