More visitors!

Some of Josh's family (Mom, little sister, and big brother) came out to San Diego to visit! Josh had to work while they were there, so Gray and I showed them some fun stuff while he was flying and dealing with the day-to-day of his ground job. Naturally, one of our first stops was Miramar. They checked out Josh's squadron and the super cool 53s.

The next day we went to Balboa Park. We went into a couple of museums, including the Museum of Photographic Arts and the San Diego Natural History Museum. 

The Museum of Photographic Arts had a pretty impressive collection of Rock 'N Roll photographs, called Taking Aim until September. There were pictures of everyone from Notorious B.I.G. and Elvis (two of my personal favorites) to the Beetles and Tina Turner.    

The Natural History Museum has a pretty fabulous collection of precious gems and metals (including jewelry, crystals, meteorites, etc) called All That Glitters.  They also have quite a few dinosaur exhibits, which are pretty neat as well. Gray got to watch another 3D movie! This one was about dinosaurs. Gray was fairly impressed. He still didn't want to wear the 3D glasses, but I managed to sneak in one good shot before he could get them off to play with them. 

Gray loves 3D movies, just not the glasses...

The next day, Josh was actually off work! We went to the beach where Adam and Maggie took their first surfing lessons. They did pretty well, and now they can tell everyone they shredded waves in California! The water was still pretty cold and the sun was in hiding, so I chose (wisely, if I say so myself) to stay out of the water. Josh wanted to give it one more try at the beach, so we went back out the next day. The sun was still bashful, but the water was warmer. We spent a little time on the beach and called it quits after Maggie and Adam took their second surfing lesson.

Gray decided he doesn't need surfing lessons. He is already an advanced surfer. The only thing holding him back is his inability to swim (or to hold his breath, but why split hairs).

Gray's surfing technique. No swimming required. 

I can't believe this is my baby. All grown up (at 15 months old).

Either way, we enjoyed our most recent visitors and were sad to see them go! I hope they loved San Diego, even if we experienced record lows and very little sun while they were here.
