Memorial Day Vacay

We just got back from a fantastic weekend on Coronado. We stayed at a hotel that was literally right on the beach. We swam in the pool - umpteen times. We ate at great restaurants. We walked along the shore at sunset. We had pancakes brought to our room and I ate them in bed while reading People magazine (the epitome of a really great vacation for me. Sad, but true). It was paradise. Kind of one last hurrah before we willingly trade in this tropical paradise for the mosquitoes, humidity, and non-ocean nearness of the Midwest. Here are some photos:


Funniest moment of the weekend though was a conversation between Josh, Hannah, and McKay. You see, Hannah is getting her five-year-molars and is beyond thrilled with the addition of her new teeth. She checks the mirror on almost an hourly basis - hoping that more of her "new teefe" have come up. She talks nonstop about how she is growing up and will soon be of the age where she can freely boss me around and wear whatever she wants.

So she is prancing around the hotel room and says to Josh, "Dad, my new teefe. Have you seen my new teefe? LOOK AT MY NEW TEEFE! They're beautiful. It means I'm growing up. I'm getting all growned up now. Can you believe I'm ALMOST ALL GROWNED UP?"

Josh says, "Yeah, Hannah, you're really becoming a woman."

McKay groans and says, "Oh great. Does that mean she's pregnant?"

So funny! And I love the pix of the wrinkly hands. That is the test of a truly fun vacation!

Those are great. Ok, disregard my comment on your photo site. I get it now....
Glad you could enjoy your coastal paradise one last time!

Hannah sounds pretty womanly for a 5-year-old!

Are you guys really moving? Are you sure you want to leave paradise? I love Coronado and People magazine! I agree, it sounds like the perfect combination. To make your last days in San Diego complete, you need to go to Los Olas (if you haven't already?) and Wind and Sea beach in La Jolla--it's absolutely breathtaking! Also, every time I hear "Hannah" comments it reminds me of Taylor. They say the funniest things and Hannah is just sooooooo cute!

Love the photos. Such cute kids. Sounds like a great weekend. When do you head out to the midwest?

I am so bummed you are moving from San Diego before we got a chance to visit. I love Coronado! Green with envy...

We move in 29 days (not that I'm counting or anything)...

I can't believe how big your kids are! In my mind I still picture you as a teenager, so seeing your kids is strange! I guess I have one of my own now, though, so if you still picture me as a 10-year-old I'm in trouble! By the way--I hear you're training for another marathon! Way to go...I'm not ready to do that again!

When Hannah starts to loose her baby teefe, I think you need to hop on a plane and come to WJ because Grandpa can pull teefe and the child doesn't even know it is missing until she tries to wiggle it with her tounge.
