On Vacation

The last three days we spent so much time in hotels and new places, I felt like I was on vacation! My mom didn't want to go to any chain restaurants while they were here, so we explored a lot and tried lots of new things. On Friday we went to Mary's Family Restaurant in Oceanside. They serve breakfast all day and we noticed a jumbo cinnamon roll for $5. It seemed a little pricey, but also sounded yummy so we asked the waitress. She looked at us like we were stupid and pointed to a plaque on the wall:

Apparently we were supposed to know they were rated the best cinnamon rolls in San Diego. Of course we couldn't pass it up and we started request two rolls for the six of us, but the waitress said one was enough. She was right:
 It was huge and lived up to it's reputation! It was fluffy and warm and just really tasty. My dad had some fun taking pictures pretending he ate the whole thing:

My girls love to swim and had to every time we went to the hotel. The pool was too cold, so we hung out in the spa the whole time. Whitney refuses to go into the ocean but she'll jump right into a pool.
 Splashing Pap Pap:
We started out in normal clothes, thinking we'd just put our feet in, but the girls had a different idea and we promptly put them in their swimsuits.
 Climbing all over Mum Mum:
 Then we headed to the pier to play at the beach:
 My parents like the cold water a little more than the rest of us:

 The girls were very content playing in the sand and getting dirty:

 Love these little munchkins:

 Serving me a treat:

After that we headed back to the hotel. The girls LOVE being in hotels. Whitney loves little notebooks, so she always takes the bedside pads and pens and goes crazy and Lindsey does whatever Whitney does. Here they are taking my parents food order:
The weather was gorgeous this weekend. Perfect temperature. When is the last time you ventured out of your comfort zone and tried something new in your area? Stay tuned for more faux vacation fun!
