The San Diego Zoo

Welcome to the San Diego Zoo!
It's been years since T and I have been here. In looking at the cost of tickets, it made more sense for us to get an annual pass, and there's even a discount if you're renewing an old membership. Let's see, I think our last membership was back in 2006... I called them up, they were able to find it in their system, and I was able to renew right over the phone! Sweet!

We checked out of the hotel, picked up Jacob, and made our way to the zoo! Along the way, we told Ian that today we were going to see...
It was fun hearing him repeat it.

Medieval Times - dining as Kings Royalty 09/03/2016

I forget how exactly the conversation started between Theresa and I, but somehow Medieval Times came up and she'd mentioned she had never been. I've been before, but it was way back in the 90s with my family. Knowing both of our families would be in LA, I made reservations for everyone to go together!
After the kids had their Disneyland Kids Races in the morning, we made our way over to the Medieval Times Castle for a 3:30pm early dinner.

2016 Disneyland Half Marathon - 2016/09/04

3am on a Sunday. What are we doing up so early? Well it's Labor Day weekend, which must also mean it's the Disneyland Half Marathon!
As a Legacy Runner, Disney emailed me and told me they were holding a spot just for me (and the 371 other Legacy Runners), in case it sells out and I don't get a chance to register in time. I signed up right on time though and had no issues.
Prices are right around the $200 mark for the Half Marathon. While past years have sold out in days, and in some cases hours, this year the event did not sell out.

Leaving so early in the morning, the freeways were completely clear. And traffic getting into the structure wasn't bad either.

Newsies Live! - One Night Only

For one night only, the original Broadway cast of Newsies has reunited to perform for a live recording of the play!
Originally intended for a limited run of 3 weeks at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey in 2011, it received such strong support, that it shortly went to Broadway, and stayed there for 2 years! After that 2 year run on Broadway, Newsies began a National Tour of the US, which will end in October 2016.
But today is special. Today many of the original Cast Members from the Broadway production are returning for a live recording, which will be released in theaters in 2017.
