Our Maybe Too Ambitious First Day of Mini-Vacation

After a very kickback weekend spent almost entirely at home, Monday morning we set off toward the beach for a mini-vacation. The first stop was taking Kuma to the pet sitters for the first time. It was hard to leave him but I know he will have a great time playing with the other dogs.

We then drove to Santa Ana and took the kids to the Discovery Science Center. I took the kids to this museum last summer and it was a huge hit. However, they have a lot of temporary exhibits and I have to say, a lot of the displays that made Jake in particular want to go back this year had changed (think marble runs and ball mazes). And the museum was busy. But still, the kids had fun.

After grabbing a late lunch and throwing in some back to school shopping, we headed over to Angel stadium to catch a game. This was one of the things that was on our summer fun to do list and I really, really wanted to go since we were going to be in the area. And again, while we still had fun, by the time the game started, the kids were pretty wiped out and there was no way they were going to make it through the whole game. Our plans for the day may have been just a little too ambitious.

I guess its a good thing that the only item on our agenda for the next day was to spend some time relaxing and playing in the water at the beach.
