Marineland


So, once upon a time there was a place called Marineland on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA. It opened in 1954, one year before Disneyland, and was considered California's first theme park. Unfortunately, it was closed in 1987 when the owners of Seaworld bought it out, and moved all the cool sharks and other sea mammals to San Diego...Anyways, in 2006 the whole place was demolished after sitting vacant for almost 20 years. We just happened upon the site today where there is now an Interperative center for Whale Watching. They also have this cool little museum with stuff about sharks, the history of the area, and the history of Marineland. Anyways, it was very cool. There is also a Lighthouse that is open to the public every 2nd Saturday of the month. We haven't been to the lighthouse, but we might go this Saturday! It would be neat I think. We had a lot of fun eating our lunch on the lawn, and watching the waves hit the shore!

The Happiest Place on Earth...

I love Disneyland! I feel like such a kid when I go. We always have so much fun and it's fun to take Nathan on some rides too! We hit up Pirates of the Carribean, Buzz Lightyear, the Rockets (see below), the Carousel, and Pinnochio. We went with some our Friends Kimberly and Joy, and then met some other friends there. We had a great time! We have two more days that we can go before we head out of SoCal, we are going to enjoy it!!!

Beach and Bonfire





We went to the Beach mid April and had a blast!! It was so hot the day we were there, it was great. We managed to grab a fire pit and were able to roast wienies and marshmallows. Nathan really enjoyed his first "real" hot dog and s'more.



Playtime

So I haven't posted in almost a month!! Wow, I'm terrible! Things have been kinda crazy with John's school and trying to think about getting packed and moved. John takes his licensing exam a week from tomorrow, and then graduates the week after that! We are almost done!!!! Then we're headed up to Coeur d'Alene, ID. Here are a few pics from earlier in April when we had our friend Anna over. They sure had fun together!
