And We’re Off

For over a month I was keeping a big secret from the boys.  Allen had been working in California and the boys and I had a visit planned.  Being a single mom is hard enough without having the boys ask me every 2.3 seconds how much longer until we go on a trip, so I decided that keeping it a secret was the best route to go.  So I picked them up from school on Valentine’s Day and told them that we were going on a Valentine’s Day date.  Here’s the video if you have 4 and a half minutes to  waste spend on it.

The bottom line is they were surprised and excited!

We had an afternoon and evening flight scheduled and they were so good!

Arriving in San Diego at 12:45 a.m. should have guaranteed that the boys slept in the next morning.  Yep, I was wrong.  I always suspected Miller has a very strong internal clock and he proved me correct!  He was up before 5 a.m. Pacific time.  Allen was kind enough to take them out and let me sleep.

After we got up and going it was decided that the boys would go do the tour of the Aircraft Carrier USS Midway and I would do some shopping.  They had a blast on the aircraft carrier.

I managed to restrain myself with the shopping and we all met up for the matinee of the Lego Movie.  If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know what nuts my boys are for all things Lego, so this movie is of Holy Grail proportions.  We all loved it.

In fact you could say that everything is awesome!  “Everything is awesome” is the theme song for the movie and if you listen to it, you will never get the song out of your mind!

That evening we drove up to Carlsbad, CA to be closer to our next day’s activities.  Can you guess where we went?  It starts wit Lego and ends with Land!
