Our Mini Vacation in California

This weekend we had so much fun on our mini vacation to California.  The timing wasn't great in light of last week's events and our upcoming trip to Boston, but we had promised the kiddos we would go to Lego Land and had already booked the trip, so we just made it work.  I am so glad that we did!  We left on Friday and just got back today.  It was a quick trip, so we didn't get to spend time with our friends or family there, but it was so nice to get away for a bit! 

We had the most beautiful view from our hotel room.  David's brother got us the friends and family rate at the Hyatt and they put us in a corner room.  Two walls were just solid windows with a view of the bay area and the downtown area.  It was amazing!! 

On Friday we came in just about in time for dinner.  We spent the night walking around Seaport Village.  Saturday we just relaxed, walked the downtown, went to Coronado Island by boat, took a bike ride, and swam.  Sunday we spent the day with one of David's bosses, as well as his family and a few of David's co-workers.  Monday we went to Lego Land, and today (Tuesday) we came home.  I wish we could have stayed longer, but it was so nice!  I worried every single day about how we would deal with seizures on vacation, but thank God Madi didn't have any.  I am so very, very thankful for that!!  Here are some photos from our mini vacation....

The view from our hotel room....

 
Madi was a happy girl!

We raised up Madi's anti-tippers, and she calls this her "relaxing" position

At LEGOLAND!
 
 
First stop... Bionicle spinners!

 
(Madi wouldn't ride but Conner and Ramya loved it!)


 
The girls loved the planes and rode a few times



 
The girls LOVED that they could ride the horses independently.  It was HUGE for them!



 
The girls both went on the roller coaster AND loved it!!  We rode it 3 times!



 
David and Conner really loved the Star Wars area!



 





 
David wouldn't take a serious picture with me, so I told him these were getting posted ;)





 
The kids thought it was really cool to see the set of the Lego movie


 
The girls even rode the dino roller coaster!




 
I'm so glad we could get away, we all really loved it!
