Family Vacation

We had planned for months to go to Washington, D.C., this year for our summer vacation, hoping to show Eli 7.11 all kinds of cool museums and historical sites.

Eli, though, asked if we would think about going to San Diego again. He had a great time last year and said he wanted to go back and try some of the things we didn't get to do last year (plus go to the Zoo and Legoland again).

The more we thought about it, the better it sounded. And here's one more reason:

That's the San Diego weather forecast for the days we'll be there. In contrast, here's the Austin forecast:

The average high in June (June!) was 99 degrees this year, which is the second-hottest year on record. The hottest? Last year, believe it or not.

The only complicating factor right now is that I smashed my foot into a wooden (and heavy) toy bin last Saturday, and as a result, one of my toes is making walking fairly painful. Our vacations are heavy on the walking, so it's going to be tough if I'm not better very soon.

That's me--"gutting out" the family vacation. Cue Benny Hill theme music.

I'll be live on tape Monday-Wednesday next week, with hopefully one post from San Diego as chaos unfolds.
