A few weeks ago we made a trip down the coast to Carlsbad for a half-marathon. We can mark this as John's first for the year. Before the big run we took the boys down early on Saturday to the New Children's Museum in San Diego. It was a rare rainy day in L.A. so we opted to avoid the zoo as planned and find an outlet for Luke. It turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day in San Diego but the museum was really cool and blast! It turned out to be an art museum geared towards kids, bright, colorful and crazy cool! There was space to run, bubbles to be blown, blocks to build with, textures to feel with your hands and feet, walls to climb and a tent city to explore (and that was just Daddy!).
Besides John's big run and visiting the museum, this was the Mizell's first sleepover in a hotel with the boys! Yowzie! I will admit it went a lot smoother than I anticipated. I guess we wore those little boys out that sleep overcame their little bodies.
John did really well on the run Sunday morning. I believe all parties (Phil Lauri, Kim Lauri, Tyler and Denise Norden) are pleased with their times. It was fun to support them all (and easy since all we had to do was step out of our hotel and we were at the 5 and 7 mile marker)! Now we get to look forward to rooting on our traveling band of runners in Lo Jolla in April!
