Labor Day Getaway!

It was so hot here around Labor Day so we decided to take an last minute mini-vacation for one night. We stayed at a gorgeous hotel in La Jolla and packed in tons of fun in 24 hours. It felt like we were gone for days and days. We all loved our one night getaway and look forward to taking more mini-trips like that in the future!

Our last minute trip included: Pat & Oscars for lunch, lots of IKEA shopping, a nap at the hotel (for Ben), a long hot uninterrupted shower (for me) and lots of jumping on the beds (for the boys of course), dinner in Old Town, a late night Shamu show with fireworks, early morning swimming and breakfast by the pool, and we ended the trip with a stop at the SeaLife Aquarium at Legoland. So much fun packed into 24 hours, but still surprisingly relaxing. It was JUST what we all needed.

The boys thought it was so cool that we were arriving at Sea World past their bedtime when most of the people were leaving. The Shamu show started at 9:30... that's super late for these guys!

Happy Jake watching the fireworks!

Both boys are super into Shamu these days... Jake even wants to dress up as Shamu for Halloween.

We picked up free kid tickets for the aquarium while eating lunch at Pat & Oscars the day before so we decided to check it out! I'll give you a full detailed review if you're ever interested in going for the 1st time :)

The first thing inside the aquarium is this tree slide built into an aquarium!

The end of a fabulous little Labor Day getaway! I think was so much fun that I think we'll make it an annual tradition.

What Ben got a nap and you didn't!? And the jumping on the beds wasn't for you either. I'm guessing Ikea was what you wanted.

Such a fun two days. I've always wanted to see the Shamu show at night.
