San Diego Vacation

We just completed our Watson family vacation in San Diego and it was a blast. We rented a house with four bedrooms and four bathrooms that fits all ten of us so well and we had a great time of relaxing and having fun.

We started the week off at Sea World and took Kiefer on the big roller coaster, he wasn't really ready for that much fun :)

We then went and watched Shamu and a few of us sat down real close and got wet in the soak zone.
The kids loved the Sesame Street themed water park area and had a great time splashing in the fountains. My favorite pics are this Cooper action sequence...

The second day we hit the beach for some sand castle building and playing in the water. That night we all went to a Padres game and sat in the benches behind the fence that had a play area for kids. They got some more sand time and also enjoyed playing on the kids baseball field and rolling down the hills, basically not much actual baseball was watched.
Here's Lexi and Kiefer sporting their new Padres tattoos.

Grandma put together lots of fun activities and crafts for the kids including a treasure hunt that the grandkids loved.

On Wednesday we went to the Hotel Del Coronado for brunch and met up with Elisa's parents for their anniversary.
The food was fantastic and we had a great time celebrating.

The guys then golfed the Coronado course and the women and children proceeded somewhere else to shop. The rest of the week included more beach time and some antique shopping (not pictured for fear of really boring you to death). We made sure to hit the lions for the traditional shot, the boys are getting bigger!

For the drive home we packed all the kids into the van and they loved being together for the drive, such a great time!

Albert Forbes Cameron

On Friday morning June 12th, my grandfather passed away at age 85. It came pretty unexpectedly and we were sad to see him go, but he was ready and is in a better place now. He was a steadfast and honorable man who survived the great depression, fought in World War II and went on to father six amazing children, my mom among them. We love you grandpa, you will be missed.

Aaron and Brett came to town for a Showit coding week and I found the Rock Band stage kit on sale and couldn't pass it up, so we tried it out on the last night to get the full rock experience. It's a fog machine, strobe light and color spots and it plugs into the XBox and syncs to the music, pretty crazy. We took some fun pictures of us rockin out while choking in the fog :)
And what would an awesome coding week be without some fancy delicious brownies from Elisa.

The New Coop

Well, we decided to give Cooper a fresh summer look and cut his long straight hair. He looks so different now but still so cute, Elisa cried a little to see him look so different. I don't think he notices or even cares but it's going to take a bit to get used to the new look.

Cooper Babblings

I've used the recorder on my phone to catch Cooper saying the different things he says right now and his funny laughs and figured I would edit it into a little audio montage for the family to hear. Enjoy.
