Much to his chagrin, Danny was the first of our household to go back to school. This being the year of three kids, three schools, he was also the only one to go back to school. Life ain't fair...but he smiled like the shiny new Third Grader he is anyway:

Grampy rented a boat again, this time down on Mission Bay, where the sea lions were plentiful if not interested in our salmon offerings:
The kids took a horseback riding lesson, this year including Laura for the first time:

I always sort of dread these trip round-up posts (which comprise the bulk of the blog lately), because it's boring to write - and read - play-by-plays, and really difficult to capture the fun. However, we have too many great pictures, and the excursions deserve to be commemorated.
The day after our arrival, and the joyful reunion with family (and cousins!), we hit the beach for the first time. Now that the kids are older, it's easier to go to the beach and much more worthwhile. Laura, especially, has come into her own as far as the beach goes, which makes it SO much more pleasant for me. Our first beach visit was to Oceanside, the nearest of them to Fallbrook.
A few days later, Danny, Laura and I met up with Breen and Colin and hit Coronado Beach (after a visit to the Midway):

A few days after that, we decided to try the Del Mar Beach, which proved to be excellent. (So much so that we ALL got sunburned. Oops.)
