this year, we celebrated my parents' birthdays at sea world. we decided to use the free tickets i had from working at sea world this past summer since they were going to expire at the end of the year. we grabbed coffee in san clemente and hit the road to san diego. it was a great afternoon - the park wasn't crowded, we saw all the shows we wanted to, and got to spend the day together. after sea world, we headed to old town for some mexican food at the coyote cafe and ended the night with margaritas and a birthday flan. happy birthdays, indeed.
