I've Been Remiss

I am so sorry for the lag in blog posts.  We just returned from a week long family vacation in the San Diego area. It was a family reunion of sorts - it was me, my sisters, brothers and our kids and my dad who all met up in California for the week.  I do have lots to blog about, but I'm too tired tonight to think.  I will share some of my favorite photos from our trip.  All my photos were taken with my iPhone, so they aren't the best, but they are pretty darn good for phone photos.  I've got a busy week/weekend coming up, but I promise a more substantial update next week.

We stayed at Camp Pendleton - Del Mar Beach.  Because access is restricted to military families - the beach wasn't super crowded, which was great.

Kite flying

Jack was not a big fan of the beach, but we made him go out a couple of times.  The beach wheelchair does not work for Jack because he has no tone and can't sit in the chair.  My nephews, brothers and brothers-in-law were great in helping carry Jack (in his wheelchair) out onto the beach.  It took four guys to carry him out.

Eric got good and dirty and had the time of his life!

Some in the group went to Sea World for the day

Sunset on the last day of our vacation - awesome!

Thanks for checking in.  More later ... I promise!

Beautiful pictures! I can't believe they're phone pics. It sounds like a great time!

Those are all great pictures! They are better than the ones I take with our good camera. Love the kite one for some reason. I'm so glad you all had a great time. It looks like it was wonderful. Hope you're resting up after your vacation!
