      Warning!!!...this post will contain LOTS of pictures :)  I hope you enjoy them and hopefully is not too much. Joining two challenges prompted this post. The first challenge is called Crazy Days of Summer and the second one is called Flashback Friday see my side bar and you will find their buttons if you would like to take a look, get info and maybe join too.

       All this photos were taken almost a year ago on our first family vacation when we visited beautiful San Diego CA and while there we went to Mission Beach, Sea World , The San Diego Zoo and The San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park. We all had so much fun, created tons of memories and took about 1500 pictures or so...and no; not all of them will be posted so don't worry.

I could go on and on but I think the photos will do the talking. I have shared a few of the photos on previous post. I hope I don't overwhelm you....here we go!!! Ready?

My son still talks about his friend the walrus who we visited at least six times while we were at Sea World.

That was a "Crazy Day(s) of Summer" and my submission for this weeks promt over at http://www.projectalicia.com/
We went to Sea World two days and the first day we had to experience getting wet by Shamu which was quite "refreshing" as you can see on the next photo I try putting the camera in a plastic bag but as you can see the picture quality wasn't the greatest so I decided to wing it and try to capture the water coming at us and turning just in time....it work but yes I was crazy trying that.

I had never seen either of this two flowers in person. I only wish I was taller to capture the magnolia better.

Sorry it this was a photo overload.....but I promise I won't do that again at least not for a while :)

Thank you for stopping by.
