Mission Bay

On June 23rd we loaded everyone up and went to San Diego. Ok, so it wasn't THAT easy. It took a little bit more planning and a lot of packing. But, we headed out to Mission Bay where we stayed at the Bahia Resort Hotel. I think Jeremy just liked the name (the Bahia in Brazil is where he served his mission). It was beautiful! We had a bay view suite. We had so much fun. The weather was perfect! We rented a boat for a hour and explored the bay, spent two days at Sea World and had a lot of fun family time. I'll post pictures. It was worth every penny and every minute of preparation.

Here is the private beach on the bay at our Hotel. The sand was silky soft and the kids loved looking for shells. The water was a bit too cold for the kids, though. Or maybe it was just too cold outside for us Las Vegans. Low to mid 70's is almost winter weather here.
Here are all the kids playing on our patio outside our room. Below is our view of the bay from our room. Perfect. Absolutely perfect!
This picture below is of the boat we rented to take a cruise around the bay. It is off to the left of the dock. We loved it! Leah and Troy ended up being rocked to sleep by the boat, though.
The kids were amazed that you could find shells in the sand. They spent a lot of time digging and searching for the 'not broken' ones. Here is Leah showing off her find.
--Also, this is a picture of the Bahia Bell. A little boat you can take a cruise on at the hotel. The kids loved the wind in their faces.

That looks like sooo much fun! I'm glad you guys finally got to take a vacation! It would have been fun seeing you guys at Sea World, but we made a good decision not to go. When we take our next trip to San Diego, we will make sure and talk to you guys first!

Wow! That is incredible. I didn't realize your room/resort was so awesome. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. I agree... that would be totally worth the money. We loved the reunion and being with you guys later on in CA. So fun. WE all gotta go again!
