Soladay Family Caliventure Part 3!

We had a great family weekend...minus issues with "The Teenager"...that child is going to drive me insane...Next topic. I am forgoing my typical weekend recap to bring you part 3 of the SFC 2010. In order not to beat anyone down with thousands of images accompanied by witty text and to save myself from hours of sorting and posting, I have combined 2 days into 1 post.
Here.we.go!

Universal Studios=BLAST
Would love to know what Carter was thinking at this moment. Sweet boy.
You think they enjoyed the haunted house? Love their faces!
Such a ham!
And again.


The stunt show
I looked over at Carter during the stunt show, and saw this sweet face...
and felt his little hand on my leg...why do they have to grow up?
Before we went on the Backlot Studio Tour, the boys had an impromptu dance session. I don't know about you, but I think Trysten might have a future career. The kid has some pretty impressive moves. Love it!
Time for the tour!
For all of the Desperate Houswives fans...which I'm not...but it was really cool to see the actual set in person.
From War of the Worlds:
Pretty awesome and so realistic!
The Bates Motel and the Psycho house!
This set is the oldest one remaining on the Hollywood lot.
The set from How the Grinch Stole Christmas
After a very long day at the park, we head just outside the gates to an area full of entertainment, shopping and restaurants called City Walk for some family fun and dinner!
There were lots of street entertainers like the one below. When we saw this guy, Trysten wanted to know why he was doing this, so I said, "He's a performance artist, also called a starving artist because he's willing to work for so little money just to display his creativity. He performs like an artist paints a picture on a canvas." Trysten responded with, "If he's so starving, why doesn't he just eat?" Precious boy.
One of the coolest parts of this dinner was watching Trysten try foods he had never eaten before! Check out what he tried...and liked:
SUSHI!!
Here's the proof!
If you know anything about T, then you know how cool this was!
Yum! Let's eat!
ALL the boys were crazy after dinner!!
What a fantastic day!
The next morning, we went to Laguna Beach.
Stunning.
The boys were in heaven!
There were so many people out watching the waves, having intimate conversations with friends, eating lunch and walking their dogs! Awesome.
Yes, we saw a little bit of everything.
Carter had a little trouble keeping his pants up!
Ryan did this and had all of us put our footprints around it.
My boys' last name is "Watts", so they call us the Solawatts!
From my sweet hubby...=)
That night we had dinner with Ryan's grandmother. Isn't she beautiful!
Hubby and I!
Our family =)


Another fantastic adventure together!!

I love that Trysten tried sushi! That is a big deal for him. Awesome. My Carter tried a bite of mine the other night and spit it out after liking it when he was younger. Go figure.

I had no idea Universal took you to so many sets. Psycho!!!! Awesome.

I heart California. I can't wait!~

We didn't make it to Universal when we went to Cali. Looks fun though! Great pics!

Sara said...

I love this!! Universal Studios is one of my favorites. I think the sets are so amazing!!

Love T's dance moves. I think he's been watching a little MJ in his spare time. hahaha

Sweet boys. Sweet family. Great trip. Love it all!

Carrie Darney said...

Love it! May have to do Universal sometime...love seeing the sets!!

I like in the picture of the boys gone wild after dinner little Carter and the teenager's expressions...so cute...

Dee Stephens said...

I love Universal too. So much better than the park in Florida.I actually know a guy who worked as a guide on the studio backlot tour when he was in film school.
I heart Cali too Casey!

Coco said...

Looks like y'all had a blast!!! I didn't realize you could see the actual sets, that is so neat.

Good for Trysten for trying the sushi, TM will eat it. Bram won't look at it.

Ryan's grandmother is gorgeous!!
