7 Quick Takes Friday - September 9, 2011

Thanks to Jen for hosting.

I uploaded over 100 vacation pictures to Facebook last night! If you're my FB friend, you can see them here, but here are some of my favorites from the non-Disneyland portions of our trip (I'll probably do a follow-up post later on this week with our Disneyland pictures -- there are too many for a QT post!)

Waiting in line at Sea World... aren't they cute?

We were waiting in line to feed dolphins!! Elanor LOVED doing this. William took one look at their teeth and flatly refused (he was firmly convinced they were going to eat HIM), and Violet didn't really seem to care. So just Collin, Elanor, and I fed them (we got to touch them, too!). Such a great experience!
Sea World had little signs in all their vegetation indicating what types of plants were around... when I saw this, I couldn't resist! She's wet because she had just finished playing in the jumping fountains at the Sesame Street Bay of Play... definitely her favorite spot! She pitched a tantrum when we moved on to a different part of the park.
I met up with my friend Melanie at the San Diego Zoo! We have known each other online for over 10 years, but this was the first time we had actually met in person. We had so much fun hanging out!
A Zoo shot of my favorite people in the world. :)
We rode the San Diego Zoo Skyfari, and part of the gorgeous view included this building. I've tried Googling but can't figure out what it is. Looks like an Orthodox Church, but maybe it's a museum or something? Anyone know?
On our last day, we decided to head to the beach for a little while. We discovered Little Corona Beach and it was just perfect. Small, secluded, and not very crowded at all. We had a wonderful time swimming in the Pacific!


  1. What beautiful photos! What an awesome trip! And I love the way that William is looking so adoringly at his daddy! Awwww!!

  2. Thanks for sharing your vacation :). I'm loving fall, but I wouldn't mind getting my toes in the sand before it snows!

  3. Love it!! I love #3, hehe!!

    Can I be your friend on FB? PLEEEEASE?! I need more Catholics to read my constant Catholic posts. lol! <3

    Glad you had a great time!

  4. Oh that picture just warms my heart. What a wonderful vacation!
