Although we did spend most of our vacation at the swimming pool (and Legoland), we did manage to do a few other things. One of the days we went sea kayaking and paddled out to some sea caves. It was so fun! I didn't take any pictures of this, but it really was fun. My boss (remember how I work online?) lives in San Diego and he kept saying that if anyone ever came out that way that he had some kayaks we could use. So we totally took him up on it.
We met up with him at a beach about halfway between where we were staying and where he lived, which happened to have some cool caves. We paddled out to the caves and saw some sea lions, jellyfish, and big orange fish. I even jumped in and snorkeled for a little while. It was tricky getting past the waves, but once we did it was pretty calm.
Emmy and Zach had their moments of tantrum throwing and whining. There were several points where Matt was pretty convinced that we'd never go on vacation again, but I made him promise before we left that he wouldn't say that. They both had trouble sleeping in the hotel, which made them extra tired. But at least part of the time they enjoyed each other's company!
