Our rooms were adjoining which is super convenient, except when the kids wake up early in the morning and then wake US up early. Yeah yeah, it's my fault. I forgot the benadryl.
Friday we went to The Wild Animal Park. One of my good friends lives 45 minutes away from there and joined us with her kids. She and I had a blast while Marshall took care of our kids. Let me just say that double stroller rentals are pretty high up there among best inventions ever.
You've seen animals before. You don't need to see pics of them. So let me move on to the crazy surprise we got while in San Diego. On our way to the Wild Animal Park, I saw that I had a voicemail from my brother. The brother I talk to maybe once a year. The brother who has probably never called my cellphone. The brother I haven't seen in 4 years.
His voicemail said he was flying in to San Diego for the weekend on business and he'd love to hook up with us. Apparently my mom had seen on my Facebook status that we were in SD and she told him. As soon as we returned from the Wild Animal Park, we met up with him for dinner. It was a great time, and he carved out some time the following day to hang out with us as well.
One of the funniest things is that we realized that my brother and Seamus are hair twins. Wanna see what I'm talking about? Hard to believe these two don't share any genes.
Seamus took to him immediately and hardly ever left his side. He also discussed Star Wars with Haven and made Marlie very happy by hanging her upside down, which she loves.
More San Diego tales coming Wednesday and Thursday.
