California Family Vacation

On Friday Sept. 5th we left for our family vacation to Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Universal Studios & Disney Land. We stayed Friday night in St. George to break the driving up. Then on Saturday morning we were off to San Diego for 3 Days.
Sunday Morning we got up and went to Sea World. We watched Shamu and the Dolphin show. We went on the Journey to Atlantis water/roller coaster ride that was way fun. Then we went back to the hotel and did a little swimming.
Monday we went to the San Diego Zoo. We walked around for a little while and decided that it was to big so we got on the bus tour and finished our trip to the zoo.
We went back to the hotel and got on our swimsuits and went to Mission Bay Beach. Brandon went and rented a body board and we all tried to do a little surfing. Taylor and Brandon did it the best.
Tuesday we got up and packed our things and were off to Universal Studios. There we went on a tour of the back lots where the make some of the TV shows and films. We saw where they make Desperate HouseWives, Water World, Jaws, and alot more. They had some fun rides there including Jurassic Park, The Mummy and The Simpsons. They were alot of fun. After we ate dinner it was off to the final destination DISNEYLAND....
We got to our hotel in Anaheim Tuesday night and stayed until Saturday morning. We were in the park from open to close and we all had such a great time. If really is The Happiest Place on Earth. We watched the parades, and the fireworks on Friday night. The fireworks are so amazing, especially Tinker Bell flying over the castle. Morgans favorite ride was California Screamin', Mulholland Madness and making sure she got Captain Jack Sparrow autograph, Taylors was Tower of Terror, Brandons was Soarin' over California and I think my favorite was California Screamin' and Tower of Terror.
We finally made it home Sunday September 14Th. We had such a great time but it sure is good to be back home in our own house. The kids are already talking about going back. Below are some slide shows with our pictures.
