On Tuesday we took a day trip to Balboa Park in San Diego with the Bousfields. We went to visit the model railroad museum. This is the same park where the San Diego Zoo is housed but I did not know that. Who knew we had a Central Park in California? I had never been to the park before and I have missed out. It is amazing. They have several museums, beautiful landscaping and tons of Spanish Architecture. I want to go back just to be able to really look at the park.

One of the many lovely fountains.
The kids really liked "the dragon" entitled "Nikigator". It was a sculpture and a mosaic. Spencer says, "Its a dragon made of marbles, colored marbles."
We stopped at Ruby's in Carlsbad for dinner and did a little shopping at the outlets on the way home. It was a great day.
