San Diego

Over the long weekend, Tanner (7) and I burned some frequent flyer miles and went to San Diego. We were warmly hosted by the Oestreicher family, and they even let us drive their Mini around for the weekend.

On Saturday, we visited SeaWorld. While it was about -13 in Minnesota, it was a balmy 70 as we wandered SeaWorld. Tanner loved it.

That night, we joined Max and Marko at Monster Jam. No big surprise: Gravedigger won. But the best moments were when Taz flipped over…

…and when Escalade caught on fire.

And on Sunday, we fulfilled Tanner’s dream to visit Legoland. He received his first driver’s license, built a cool Lego ship, and generally had one of the best days of his life.

It was a blast! And a special thanks to Marko and Max (and Jeannie and Liesl).
