Boys Day Out- The Perfect Day

So after spending the night at the Queen Mary (see previous post) we woke up in the morning, went downstairs through this beautiful lobby and had breakfast in the restaurant. The funniest picture I took was of my son Michael eating French Toast, and although he had a fork in his hand he decided to use the toothpick from his fruit to eat it...


We went back to the room and grabbed a quick shot together for memory sake...I'm trying to get into more pictures and not just be the one taking them....

Before leaving the ship we started the Ghosts and Legends tour on the ship. The boys got scared and hid under my shirt...so we left the tour after only 5 minutes. The funniest thing was after we left the boys started saying.."I wasn't scared I was only shy...."
We took off to the Aquarium of the Pacific where the boys had the time of their lives.

We saw jellyfish....

Pet the sharks....

Bought stuffed animals...

And the boys grabbed my camera and started taking pictures of me!!! This was probably their favorite thing of the day...

They hid in caverns....

And got up and close to the fish...

Tried to get inside the tanks...

And just sat in wonder.....

We left the aquarium and went to see IRONMAN!!!! The boys were pretty excited...


The boys enjoyed popcorn, milk duds, and licorice....with some fruit punch...
We left the theater and headed home.......
I called Kara and asked how she was doing. She said she could use a nap so I kept the boys for a little while longer.....they fell asleep on the drive home....
I decided to take them to another movie.....we decided to see Speed Racer.
The movie was fantastic and the boys were literally standing on the seats screaming during the race scenes...it was hilarious and the kind of movie where letting the boys make noise during the race scenes was just fine....
We left the theater at 11pm at night....Kara called and wondered when her boys were coming home. It was the most memorable day of my life with my boys and I made sure to document it carefully so we could remember forever. Definitely a day that I will repeat in the future....you can never have too many perfect days................
