Wild Animal Park

Our final post from this San Diego trip. We spent a fun day all together at that Wild Animal Park last weekend. Its been another wonderful trip.

Kel on the carousel.

Spying animals out on the African plains.

The foot massager again. Kel and Grandpa should not be allowed to use these things!

Dad feeding the Lorikeets.

How Kel measures up against a gorilla.

Up close and personal with a lion!

One last visit to Seaworld

We can never get enough of this place. Here are some snaps for our last Seaworld adventure this trip.

Kel enjoying some play time at Bay of Play.

At the tide pool where we enjoy flipping starfish and watching them turn back over. Its a neat trick and kind of amazing.

On the skyride over the bay.

More fun at Bay of Play.

Enjoying the Shark Encounter.

Dinner with Friends

A few goofy photos of Kel, Holden, and Ainsley after a fun dinner out together. It was wonderful to see Shannon and the family :-)

San Diego Maritime Museum

It was a beautiful day to catch the ferry across the bay and head over to the San Diego Maritime Museum. A little boy's paradise of tall ships, steam boats, submarines, and sloops.

Kel's favourite exhibit by far was this decommissioned Russian sub. In fact, he said that "the America submarine was boring. The Russia sub is much more fun". More bleak to be sure.

Before going into the Russian sub, you have to pass through this hole to make sure that you're going to be ok to fit. since there are quite a few of these as you travel through the sub.

Kel playing with the periscope. Spying on the aircraft carriers across the bay.

Pretending to be a figurehead. He couldn't get himself to balance properly, so he found someplace to lean.

In the museum there was a great project for kids where they were able to make their own miniature tall ship model.

Back on the ferry to head out.

It was a very sunny day!
