Calee4kneeah: The Rest of the Story



Day Three

Balboa Park
Natural History Museum
Apparently we didn't let Joey ride on enough carousels as a child and he has been forced to compensate








Botanical Garden






If my hand crafted Harry Potter-type wand worked worth a darn I would apperate this whole botanical building into my backyard and live happily ever after.









Mormon Battalion Museum, Old Town San Diego
      and 
Point Loma

For an entertaining half hour, go learn about the only religiously based battalion in U.S. history that marched 2000 miles from Iowa to San Diego.  Plus, you get a nice parking space for exploring old town where you can eat a great meal at Miguel's.

Universal Studios, Los Angeles
There are 345 stairs along side 3 long steep flights of escalators from the lower lot to the upper lot at Universal Studios.  I climbed the stairs and was feeling quite proud until some little kid ran past me laughing.  He waited for me at the top to tell me it was his birthday.  That is why I didn't beat him up.

Six Flags - Magic Mountain

Sorry, no pictures.  I was far too busy not riding roller coasters and eating churros

Home again, home again jiggedy jig

You really did hit all the hot spots! We really enjoyed the Mormon Battalion, and Magic Mountain has always been a big favorite with our kids.

Bring me back some of that vegetation for my back yard too once you get your wand working. You have had a fun-filled, rich vacay! Safe return.

There's perks to living in California. I was in Long Beach on a mission 2005-2007 and the mission office was v-e-r-y slow and too many people in there. So when Saturday came along, I was ready to ride out and see something. I love the ocean air.

It looks like you guys had so much fun. I only went to San Diego once and went to a few of the same places you did--Old Towne, Mormon Battalion Museum, Balboa Park, Coronado Island. Not sure if I'll ever be back, but there was plenty I didn't get to do.

San Diego is still on my list of places I'd like to visit. It looks like you had fun - but I hope you went back down that staircase and did the whole thing over again, at a run.
