Pumpkin Patch

The award for "Best time at the Pumpkin Patch" goes to....Olivia!  
 Not because of the pumpkins, but because of the petting zoo.  This girl needs a farm!
The rest of us had a pretty good time too!

The Little Mermaid

All of the girl cousins and moms meet up for a city production of "The Little Mermaid".  The girls loved it.  The ticket included an hour long tea party followed by the hour long musical.  We made the afternoon out of it and met up for brunch at Mimi's Cafe before it began.  During the middle of the show Abigail leaned over to me and asked, "Mom, am I watching a movie?"  It's fun to begin to introduce the girls to musicals and what a "girls day" is all about.    (As a side note, Grace had Bobby Bear this weekend which is why he is in all pictures.)

Grace didn't have school Friday so Ben took a vacation day and vacation we did.  We LOVED Legoland!  Why have we never been here before?  It is the perfect park for young kids.  The girls could ride just about every ride (and it was great b/c the rides did not seem like "baby rides"), the lines were short, and the weather was beautiful.  This was our first "mini vacation" with just our family in a while and we all enjoyed every second of it!
 One of the girls favorite parts about going away is staying in a hotel.  The park closed at 5 so after grabbing some dinner we hit up the pool, had a little dance party, ate some cookies, and crashed.  
Saturday morning after breakfast we walked around the San Diego temple then spent the day at Coronado Beach.  This beach was perfect for kids.  The sand was so smooth, the waves were small, and you could play in the water pretty far out before it got deep. What a wonderful weekend it was!  It couldn't have been any more perfect, and I wouldn't have wanted to spend it with anyone else!
