Encinitas {Favorite Photos}.

Are you sick of the Encinitas posts yet?
I promise this is the last one.
I swear.

These are my favorite pictures and moments from the week.
(there's a ton, I know, but the Grandma's love it)

I'm ready to go back.

Encinitas {sea world}.

While we were on vacation last week we headed on over to Sea World. 
Brett and I had never been there together, which means it was a first for the kids.
They both loved it!
We got to feed dolphins and seals, touch starfish, learn about sea animals, play, and of course, see Shamu.

I love watching the boys get excited about sea life.
Ethan loves anything that moves in the water and always wants to know the name of the animal he's watching, he's so inquisitive.
Jacob usually just hangs out in the stroller when we go to places like Sea World, but not this trip.
He was most fascinated with Shamu, more so than Ethan.
I had more fun watching the look on his face as Shamu jumped out of the water than I did watching the show. 

We will most definitely be back.

Encinitas {sunsets}.

I love a good sunset.
Really, who doesn't?
We were lucky enough to get amazing sunsets almost every night during our vacation.
A group of us would gather around every night and watch the sun drop into the ocean.

I already miss walking out onto the patio, watching the sun go down.
When can we go again?

Encinitas {the beach}.

We're home from our fabulous week long vacation at the beach.
 We had so much fun playing at the beach, hanging out with family, going to Sea World and relaxing.

I was so glad my parents were able to make it down. My mom had her gallbladder removed the day before she was supposed to leave. We weren't sure if they would be able to come at all but half way through the week they made it. The kids were so happy to have their Papa and Gee there.

While we were there I took a zillion pictures so I'm going to break it up and share some of my favorites over the next few days. 

I'm starting out with the beach.
We didn't spend everyday at the beach since it's a lot of work with 2 babies and 3 toddlers but we did get a lot of sand time in.
We made sand castles, dug for sand crabs, collected rocks, ate sand (well only Jacob really), and swam in the ocean. 
My nieces went boogie boarding for the first time also. Their little faces were too cute to watch.
