San Diego California - My 50th Birthday Present (trip)
We took a trip to cool San Diego for my 50th birthday present.
Kenny, Tyler and Jen at Sea World.
(The Dolphin Show)

In front of the Shark Tank - we just got drenched on the "Atlantis Ride"

Jen and Tyler boogie boarding at Mission Beach.

Year ago - we used to stay at a little hotel on Mission Beach and behind the hotel was a couple of food/shops we used to visit. We had to visit our little taco shop on the beach. We felt a little Gordo after eating here. I had to take a picture of the bean and cheese burro I ordered. It was huge and tasty. Jennifer didn't like the whole pinto beans, she is used to them being refried. I thought it was tasty.

What is a trip to the beach without some yummy ice cream. The little shop was next to Tacos El Gordo. They make their own ice cream and have different specials each day. Yummy!!!!

We went to Beaumont Park on Mission Bay. The kids had me ride this ride that you spin around, both forwards and backwards as the ride goes in a circle. Fun times. I can still ride the rides at 50!

This ride is a little too scarry for me, but I can say I did it. I'm sitting next to Tyler, my hair is in my face and I'm kind of glad that I couldn't see, because it took you way high in the air, spinning and then like a pendulum it would swing down, and take you high up the other side.

Fantastic Trip for my 50th!

That was such a fun trip! I definitely feel a little gordo now though.. But it was worth it! I'm missing that nice weather too!

Happy Birthday Lori. Glad you got to celebrate! Sounds much better than my 50th - (recovering from "hmmm hmmm" - you know that wonderful surgery woman have around that age) and cracked a molar in half while eating dinner! Sounds like yours was a blast. I still miss playing volleyball. Do you think we'll all get to play again as a team in heaven some day? Hope you can still ride these rides on your 60th! Who would ever have thought we'd be 50?

You surely did have an awesome trip. I also intend to arrange tailor made sports tours and have great fun too.
