Family Fun Weekend

Daddy's company was having several-day meeting at a hotel downtown so Friday after school the kids and I drove downtown to meet him and spend the night.  
we enjoyed walking around Seaport Village and exploring some of the local sights before dinner.

 We had never walked down to the aircraft carrier so we headed that direction and found several fun surprises.

This monument to the USS San Diego . . . . 

 . . .a great view of the carrier . . . 

  . . . . another monument. . .  
 . . . and this!. . . 

  . . . and finally a tribute to Bob Hope.

 Back at the hotel after dinner we explored the pool/game area and enjoyed the view. . . and a little warm up by the fire pits.

 After brunch the next morning we headed back to the game area and then enjoyed some time in the pool while Daddy finished up his last meeting.

 We even got in a little more exploring time in Sea Port Village.
 Finally we headed home - only to head back out a couple hours later for the Monster Bash at Joseph's school.
Our Iron Men!!!

Miramar Air Show

The Miramar Marine Base (of Top Gun fame) hosted its annual Air Show while Papa was visiting so we headed there on a beautiful/hot Saturday afternoon.

We got there early enough to see the Blue Angels.  Definitely a highlight of our day.

The boys also enjoyed all the various bounce houses.

My little fighter pilots.

Another highlight was watching the paratroopers land.
