A couple of weeks ago we made a last-minute decision to take a road trip to California. This was completely out of our norm, or norm as we know it. We had nothing better to do, and it’s been so darn hot here in Vegas. Why not??? We set out after work on Friday and headed towards San Diego. We thought we would take the boys to the zoo and maybe hit the beach. We decided to wait on Sea World until the babies are a little older. I’m not sure they have the patience to sit through the shows, and I don’t have the patience to corral them at the water park. This was our first road trip with the trio. Driving across the desert with 3 toddlers and 2 older-and-easily-bored boys is not all that fun. The last couple of hours on the road someone was crying. It took us about 2 hours longer than it should have, but we made it regardless.
My tribal warrior and tiger….
The zoo was a full day activity and the babies were wiped out. Matt & I were pretty wiped out ourselves from pushing the stroller up all those hills! Whew, what a work-out! We drove the big boys by seal beach and let them walk on the sand a few minutes then we called it a day. We didn’t dare try to go to a restaurant at that point so we opted for a room-service dinner too.
We didn’t leave the beach until after 6:00. The ride home was much easier…. all the boys slept, which was good since Noah & Eli had school the next morning. 🙂 Overall the trip was a success. It was a nice break if nothing else!
