Vacation - Days 6 & 7

Continuing on with "Jayla and Saremy's Vacation 2009," we're now on Sunday.  This day was a much needed day to relax from our three fun filled (and tiring) days at Disneyland.  We went to church in the morning with Jerm's parents and then, we headed out near Balboa Island, for lunch at Ruby's Diner on the pier.  This is what the building looks like.  I forgot my camera this day, so I took this from the website. :)

After lunch, we headed over to the Irvine Spectrum mall to do some shopping.  Well okay, Kayla and I did some shopping while the boys watched.  Before we knew it, it was time to go to our evening event...the Anaheim Ducks game!

The Ducks game was surprisingly a lot of fun!  All I know about hockey, I learned from the Mighty Ducks movies (which are awesome, by the way), but I must say...rather enjoyed the event.  Plus, we had good seats where servers came by, took your food/drink order for you and brought you your food.  Cool!

After the game, we jumped in the car and drove to San Diego for the rest of our vacation. 

Day #7 was spent at the wonderful San Diego Zoo.  Though it was a bit cold in the morning, we enjoyed our time seeing all the different animals. When we first got there, we hopped onto the double-decker bus that toured the zoo, so we got a chance to see a great overview of the place.  When that was finished, we walked all over the zoo for an up close look at the animals.  There were lions, tiger and bears.  Oh my! :)

This guy reminded me of Harry Potter...when the snake gets Dudley!

So, as you can see, it was a fun day at the San Diego Zoo.  Once done, we went back to the hotel to nap for a bit until dinner.  When it was about dinner time, we drove across the bay, to Coronado Island, to eat at the Coronado Brewing Company.  Great suggestion, Jake!  Dinner was excellent and it was another great ending to a great day. 

I know that you're all anxious to see what we did next!  Stay tuned as we wrap our vacation in one more upcoming post...
