July is almost over

We went down to San Diego for our mini family vacation this past week. It's a trial experiment with Secondo considering her potty readiness skill is not 100% reliable yet. We brought the potty with us in case she had to go in the middle of the freeway. This had happened to us during a drive home from my parent's home and we had to frantically find a bathroom in an unknown scary neighborhood by freeway.
We went to Legoland on Monday and it was Secondo's 1st trip there. She enjoyed the helicopter, boat and the safari jeep ride. After lunch we hung around the play area before Danielle and I went on to the aquazone. The line was short so we went on it twice. We left the park around 4PM and checked in to the Carlsbad Holiday Inn by the Sea. The hotel looked nice on the website but did not meet my expectation. A more accurate description would be Carlsbad Holiday Inn by the outlet mall. The sea was not visible from the hotel. We grabbed a bite to eat and visited my friend who lives 2 blocks from the beach.
We were lucky enough to catch the sunset and Danielle unwilling posed for my friend. The kids played in the sand and we sat and enjoyed the view.

We stayed until dark and headed back to our hotel.
