Ready for a Quickie? (SAN DIEGO)

Hey, I think I am pretty sure what I want to do for my 30th birthday and after looking a few things up online Im really psyched!!

I think I want to go down and hang out in San Diego for 2 weeks with the boys! Just looking through some stuff really quick I came up with THIS list of stuff I want to check out:

San Diego Zoo
San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park
Legoland California
Aviation Adventures & Film Museum
Birch Aquarium at Scripps
The Firehouse Museum
Lux Art Institute
Maritime Museum of San Diego
Mingei International Museum
San Diego Air & Space Museum
San Diego Archaeological Center
San Diego Automotive Museum
San Diego Model Railroad Museum
San Diego Museum of Man
San Diego Natural History Museum
The New Children's Museum
USS Midway Museum
Whaley House Museum

Now, obviously I will have to scratch a few museum's off my list, Ill have an 8 year old and a 7 year old with me at the time after all. Im sure if I sit down and research I could probably double that list as well!

I think this sounds like a great idea, its far from home, its somewhere Ive never been, it has things Ive always wanted to do and places Ive always wanted to go. Im also excited as it will probably be 150 degrees out and you all know just how much I love the heat (note the sarcasm).

anyway, I said I was going to keep this short, so just a few more paragraphs...

I know Im only 28, and I wont be 30 for another twenty two months, but I want to do something that feels BIG, something I havent ever done before, and I want it to be something I do with my kids. I want it to be a long vacation, which is something Ive never had. The last time I can even recall taking a vacation that lasted longer than a 4 day weekend was in 1987 when I went to disney land and sight seeing for a week.

I want this to be 2 weeks long and I want it to be awesome! And like I said, I know its early, but I anticipate being poor for a few more years at least, so something this big I need to get on top of ASAP.

Any ideas, let me know. Esspecially if you've ever been there, let me know what you did and what you thought about it!
