4th of July In Paradise!
We were so blessed to spend the fourth in San Diego at Paradise Point which is very special to chris and I because this is where we were married almost 5 years ago! It was wonderful to take Shayleigh on her first family vacation to this special place. She enjoyed "helping"us pack from INSIDE the suitcase, conked out after a busy day at sea world, loved on her daddy, & watched her mommy cuddle up to a giant sting ray (see pictures at right).We met up with some of Chris's family & spent the whole weekend visiting & letting them get to know our little princess. We took Shayleigh to Sea World on July 2nd & she had a wonderful time checking out all the interesting floaty things! July 3rd was the annual fireworks celebration put on by the resort & Shayleigh absolutely loved the fireworks! at first she gazed at them wide-eyed (you didn't think her eyes could get any wider did you?) then she began cheering & clapping along with everyone else. It was adorable, in fact it just may have been too adorable because I happened to notice that many people were having more fun watching her than the fireworks!! On the 4th we watched the sunset on the beach outside the hotel room with all the family & cuddled up by the fire & made smores. I guess Shayleigh had enough of the fireworks the day before because she conked out & nothing was able to disturb my sleeping beauty! I'm so glad she got to enjoy them the day before! It was a wonderful getaway, but we were very happy to be home & get back into our routine.
