Fingerprint Friday

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:
I can see the fingerprints of god.
When I look at you, I can see the fingerprints of god.
And I know its true.
You're a masterpiece, that all creation quietly applauds.
And you're covered with the fingerprints of god.

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints.

We go to Sea World, a lot. It's just an easy place to take a 7 year old and a 2 year old.
There are no lines to wait in and it doesn't stress me out to let Molly walk around.
(Unlike that other "happy" place we visit often!)

Before Sea World last weekend, we went down to the water by the hotel to take few pictures.
And right before us, a pod of dolphins swam by...
And for a few minutes, my family was quiet as we watched.
It's amazing to see these creatures perform at Sea World.
But it's equally amazing to see them swimming out in the open.

Beki has more fingerprints!

Day One- Friday

Our Father's Day weekend was spent in San Diego.
First stop, the San Diego County Fair.
I loved all the colors...
this was a crazy, long, twisty slide. Jack loves this fun house-type things.

Molly tried a lot of rides, too!
This blue balloon got away from the game. And while I don't encourage
my kids to interact with "carnies", it was very sweet to see her return it.

This is Jack's excitement BEFORE jumping.
He was VERY determined to do a flip...and he eventually was successful!

A fun hang-gliding ride!

Ken and Molly rode the trucks...

...while Jack surprised us by enjoying this ride!

The kids look a bit confused...because this ride had "It's a Small World" playing as they went around. And trust me, Molly knows this was NOT the Small World ride!
We rode an elephant!

The boys rode the sky lift!

The cinnamon rolls. I didn't have one. THAT is an Orange County Fair tradition...

Day 2- Saturday

You can imagine how happy I was to find that Christine and her family were here from Hong Kong. And by here, I mean, they were in San Diego...and at the Wild Animal Park!

Molly and Josiah waiting for the tram ride.

The 3 kids...(so sad I didn't get any of Josiah's sweet baby sister!)

(but I did get one of Jack's silly little sister!)

A wonderful time, with a wonderful friend!

Jack fed the lorikeets.

And grew up before my eyes (again).

Molly was happy, with her duck friends.
(she did NOT catch any, this time!)

Day 3- Sea World

Our hotel had an amazing view, and I was determined to get a picture of the kids together.
No such luck. So, I settled with 2 individual shots. Better than nothing.

We had a great day at Sea World...

And now, we are home. Here's to the start of a fun and exciting summer!
