The obligatory slide show




I am not naive to the fact that most people don't care about pictures of other people's kids, pets, or family vacations. I happen to be one of those people that gravitates towards a picture, no matter who is in it.
















If you are one of the former people, and don't care about our vacation or the cute/funny things my kids did, go ahead and read the next blog on your list. I won't be hurt. Promise. Not for long anyway.



SO...we went to Southern Cali for a week, to escape the heat of our own semi permanent state.



It was a fun trip.



Here are some pictures we took in the car when the boredom was about to break us.



Dev is happy as usual







Calvin didn't want his picture taken

Bogey was willing


for the most part

Bogey decided that he wanted to take my picture, too. I was impressed that he actually did it without breaking the camera. (not because I think I am ugly, but because he tends to crush things he's holding)



I love this picture of The Hubby and Calvin sitting in our hotel watching the cars go by


Proof of where I was. See, I don't lie. much


Bogey was fascinated with the sharks.



This is a fun bounce-house-place-thing in the Sesame Street section of the park. The kids absolutely LOVED it there. I highly recommend it for small kids. There is an awesome net/jungle gym thing that even little Calvin could go through by himself. (I went through with him about 5 times before I exited, huffing and puffing like the really out of shape person that I am. After that, he and Dev went through it over and over all by themselves.)





Holy crap...a leetle peeg





Then we spent a day at the beach.



Dev is jumping the waves with her sticky-situation-getter-out-of-er, Al. He lifted her up when the waves got too high.


This is as wet as I got (and it was fabulous)


The Hubby, Calvin, and Bogey liked playing in the sand. See our sand castle? (Calvin played in the water for a little while, and also Bogey liked to eat the sand, too.)

At Legoland, I met my new boyfriend (isn't he a dream boat?)

The Hubby's ok with it.


At Legoland, they have tons of figures made completely of Lego's. I take comfort in the fact that I would NOT have the patience to do that job.



Bogey loves "Bob da biwda"


some more crazy examples of the Legosintricity:







This concludes the presentation. This happy family vacation slide show has been brought to you today by the letter L and the letter S, and the number 3. For the benefit of future viewers, please leave feedback at the end of the column. Thank you, come again, pay us big bucks, be happy about it, and have a nice day.

Looks like you all had a lot of fun. Dev's smile looks like Rubio's with the two front teeth coming in.
