Point Loma- at the museum

 While visiting San Diego in November, we decided to spend a rainy Sunday Afternoon at Point Loma National Monument.  There was a small museum dedicated to the Spanish Conquistadors which was full of maps and fascinating trinkets from the 14 and 1500's.  We also stopped at their small gift shop, and watched a movie about mother Grey Whales and their babies. After the sun decided to come out and play, we went and explored the tide pools. (Next post)
Nathaniel and Michael. Those two had the time of their lives that day; they laughed and laughed and stuck together like peas and carrots.  How fun to have cousins!

Our home is near the smaller lake on the left.

Oh, I love this boy.  I hope he stays this sweet for a long time.

Cabrillo himself.  He'd be kind of hot if he could quit flaring his nostrils.

Whatever you do, don't let the webkins get wet!  London's penguin is a girl named "Spike".  She sleeps with it every night.  It protects her from the evil penguins.

Nathaniel inspects the real chain mail. Or is it called chainmail?  Wait..isn't chain mail something you have to forward or a curse will be fall you in 7 days? Hmmm...let's just call it armor.  "Nathaniel inspects the armor".

I only wish I had been close enough to hear what those two were saying about the cash in the donation box.

My Dad, the genius, learns even more.  He's always reading.  Except when he's sleeping. 

This gift shop puzzle shows about all there is to the monument.  It was a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon, though.

London feels out a different life.

My sister Dana takes pictures of the kids while I photograph her.

Nathaniel wields a real sword.
