Balboa Park

So as I mentioned, on Sunday we met up with Laura and her family again before we headed back to the desert. I love, love, love Balboa Park. For a more in-depth post about what it is and the sentimental value it holds, you can read my post from our last visit here.

We have kind of settled into a routine at Balboa Park where we visit the same attractions - the fountain, the miniature train ride, the carousel and the model railroad train museum and this trip was no exception. The only exception was that since the kids were so occupied with everything that instead of taking the usual million plus pictures, I took the opportunity to chat more with Laura. However I did get this picture of the kids on the carousel. They decided to ride the cats instead of the usual horses:

And I don't know what it is about this picture that I love so much. It's not the best photo technically. It's not even the greatest shot of either kid. But for me, it is a perfect illustration of how wonderfully Jake and Jadyn get along 95% of the time - how much fun they have together and how much they love each other. I really am quite fortunate that they enjoy each other so much. Here they share their excitement during our train ride:

So for those family and friends that do not regularly visit Laura's blog, I would urge you to check out her post about our meet-up. For one, she had to go and show me up when I said it was near impossible to get a good shot of all four kids together. She "miraculously" succeeded on that front. Plus, since I made my personality such a front and center subject with my recent blog post last week, you can get another person's view on who I really am, one that I must say is much more flattering than the one I had for myself.

I really like the picture of them on the carousel too- they both look so happy.

Love the picture too! Wish I could say N&A got along so well but something tells me Jake & Alex would get along 95% of the time, at least when they are not killing each other with swords. ha ha!

I am glad you two had such a wonderful time together! Maybe one day I will meet a fellow blogger! That park looks great!
