San Diego 2012

This last May we took a family vacation to San Diego for a week.  It was such a much needed vacation for our family (well mostly for Joel and I to let go of work for a week and just enjoy some family time).  I was a little nervous about Ava on the plane (this was her first plane ride), but she did great.  We stayed at a resort close to Sea World that had beautiful grounds and great pools.  I think that swimming in the pool was one of Ava's favorite things.  We were able to visit Sea World, The San Diego Zoo, and the Safari Park.  Joel and I liked the Safari Park the best, and I think that Ava probably enjoyed Sea World the most.  We had a fun and wish we could get away from work and other obligations more often as a family.
