Memorial Day Vacation

With the end of the semester over and summer classes just a few days away, we took the opportunity to get away for a few days. We usually like to try and go down to San Diego during Memorial Day weekend since it's our anniversary. This year, we celebrated our 6th anniversary! Wow how time flies!

Keegan has been very interested in life events lately, especially weddings and dying - why these two, i don't know! So he will see pictures of our wedding and comment that he wasn't there, so we need to get married again so he can be there. So off to the Prado we went! It was crazy on Sunday! I always forget that they have this huge food festival during the Memorial Day weekend. But we eventually made it to the Prado!
Just a little family selfie!

We first headed down to our "I Do" spot....which is where my heart stopped for a minute.

Here's Mr standing behind the wishing well, which is where Jeff and I said our vows. You know how they say things like your life flashing before your eyes and how things can happen in an instant....

So in one moment, he's standing here. And the next moment, he was gone. Did i mention this overlooks a green space? In some places it falls straight down. So i make a mad dash to see where Keegan had fallen too. Luckily, this particular spot was only a 6-7 foot drop. So he was just a bit rattled, but it could have been so much worse - thank you God! Of course, i'm crying my eyes out and Jeff looks like  he's about to have a heart attack and K says "That was Awesome!!!!"

So after that little adventure, we headed over to the Paradise Point Resort in Mission Bay. We didn't even scratch the surface of all the fun things that there was to do here, but here's some of our fun times!
Checking out the beach

Digging on the beach with Daddy

Racing trucks into the water

We also rented a FunCat - which was a little battery powered catamaran that we drove around the bay. I think that was actually one of the best new memories that we made on this trip.

Just chillin

Checking out the fish!

Time to relax!

On our way home from SD, we decided to grab a few hours at Disneyland. We rarely go during the day, what with work schedules and all. And i actually thought we would stay longer since we finally had the opportunity, but evidently 4 hours is our max. But being the daytime, we did actually do a few new things. We went on the Winnie the Pooh ride (which was new) and played around on Tom Sawyer Island (i don't care what they call it now, it will always be Tom Sawyer's Island to me - this wasn't new, but we rarely get to go since its generally closed at night) and of course, Autotopia (K's favorite ride)
We got the ride at the front of the Monorail. 

Traveling through the jungle!
We also got to do the canoes around the island. I didn't even think they still had this attraction. I hope this one never goes away - some things should never be moved to Yesteryear!

And we finished off the day saying hi to the birds at the Rainforest Cafe!

And now, back to reality. Boo!!!
