Our California Trip Part 4: The Zoo, Cool Cars, and Dinner with my Birth Dad

Whew!  Tomorrow we drive home from vacation, and then it's back to reality.  We have preschool and doctor's appointments, therapy, homeschooling, and all of life awaiting us.  I have sure enjoyed escaping it all for a bit!  I still have the cough I've had the entire trip.  I'm hoping it goes away once we are home and I can load up on my normal natural remedies.  I'm never sick, so for me to have been sick this whole trip is just plain crazy!!!  It sure hasn't slowed me down, though!

Today I'm posting the last of my photos!  First up is our trip to the San Diego Wild Animal Park.  We got tickets from my Aunt and Uncle (thanks Petey and Chuck!!!) and only had to pay for Conner to get it.  It doesn't get any better than that!  It was our first trip to the wild animal park.  The kids had a blast and it was a great park! 

Next up is photos from our trip to Coronado Island.  We went there after we saw the Harbor Seals to walk around and eat dinner.  There was a random car show going on for a bunch of old classic cars that were racing in a race this weekend.  The kids LOVED seeing the cars and even got to sit in a few!  They were in Heaven!  There was also some music, which of course lead to dancing.  Like I said, our family is always dancing!  Oh, and Madi found a fake cow she loved.  You will see it in her dancing video.  She named it "baby" and said it was HER cow.  She was so very heartbroken she couldn't bring "baby" home.  Oh, she also tried to milk baby and loudly annouced how many "nipples" baby had.  Yup, that's my girl.


Tonight we ended our trip by going out to dinner with my birth dad, Mark and his wife, Michelle.  Michelle's mom, Judy, came to dinner with them as well  It was our first time meeting Judy and we all thought she was very sweet.  We hadn't seen them for a few years, so it was nice to finally get together again.  We had a lot of fun with them, like always.  I, unfortunately, forgot my camera and don't have a picture.... so bummed!  One day I will have to post my adoption story for you.  I know I've shared bits and pieces, but never the whole story. 

That's all for now!  I have some medical updates to post soon, but that can wait for another day.  I'm headed to bed so we can pack and start heading home at a decent time tomorrow.  Have a great night sleep and a blessed day tomorrow!
