Marine Corps Ball

Friday night was our Marine Corps Ball! I LOVE going to the ball. But then again who doesn't like the chance to dress up and act likes it's prom all over again?! Nanci came in town and watched the boys for us which was awesome. It was great to get away for a night and hang out with adults!!You even get your picture taken like at prom!Dancing with our mouths hanging open, haha!
Our hotel was less than a mile away from Disneyland so we decided the next day to hang out there for the day. It was all decked out in Christmas decorations and would have been gorgeous except for the fact that there were so many fires up north it was raining ashes on us. But still you can't go to Disneyland and not have fun!
P.S. All these were shot with our old point and shoot camera, so don't judge the photography skills :)

Old Town San Diego

Monday we rode the train down to Old Town San Diego! The boys LOVE riding the train and Quinn gets really excited whenever he sees one, so we went while Brian had a few days off for Veteran's Day. It's pretty much a bunch of old buildings trying to show what life was like back in the later 1800's. Pretty much just a great place for me to take a lot of pictures of the boys and to bombard you all with, :).How much are you weighing these days Gray?!This is where we ate some great Mexican foodAnd here is Fred, who the boys loved at first, so we sat right by him. But after he started making a ton of loud noises Quinn was over it and we had to move!Time to head back on the train...And that was our day riding the coaster! Gotta love the military for getting 96's on federal holidays!!

We have a fun filled night watching the boys play with play-doh!They both seemed to enjoy it, though Grayson seemed to equally enjoy the wax paper that was on the table! But hey, whatever works I guess. Brian even got in on the action...Someone needs to tell him that Halloween is over and he needs to start making Christmas trees.

Sea World

Yesterday we went on our (pretty much) annual trip to Sea World. Anheuser Busch, which owns Sea World, allows military members and their families free tickets once a year to their parks. So we decided to use it before the year was over and take the boys. They LOVED it! Quinn was so excited to see all the animals/fish and Grayson was very happy to be along for the ride. We took all kinds of pictures, so be prepared for a lot :) This catfish looks like it could EAT Grayson!As I've already posted yesterday, we were both very excited about the Tech game being on TV here is Cali yesterday so we both made sure to wear our Tech shirts in case we saw any Texas fans!We took a break between shows and played in this little park. Quinn was showing us how fast he could run.And in the mist of the running he saw a rabbit in the bush and decided he should go get it. "I'll catch the rabbit" He kept telling us that over and over.So Grayson joined too...See... Tech fans!Here we went to the dog/cat show. (Why there's this type of show at SEA World, I'm not quite sure)And Nanci we took a picture of the bulldog just for you....Then the last show was Shamu!!Last year on our trip Grayson fell asleep at the Shamu show and he did again this year. I put it on the website last year so I had to get Brian to take one again for this year's post!So there's our trip to Sea World! Hope you made it through all the pictures and read this far down. :)

GO Tech for being ranked 2nd!!!
