September was filled with a lot of surprises and joy. We took our very first family vacation and traveled to San Diego from Eureka. It took us a LONG time to get there, but it was well worth it. We stopped for several things on the way, including seeing some of our precious family that we haven't seen for years, and that Ahava has never met. Our destination was The San Diego Zoo and ultimately, SEA WORLD! When Ahava became ill a while back, we watched some Sea World shows online and she asked us if we could go there. Bryan and I knew we wanted to take a smile vacation and talked about it later and decided that it was possible. We both couldn't wait to see her face when she was actually there. And we have the photos to remember it.

|We were so blessed to be able to do something special, like Dine with Shamu. |
They served a great lunch and we got to see and hear about the Whales and
have a special time with them right next to us.
|Ahava got to meet one of the trainers. She was SO happy|
and felt so special.

for learning how to write an "A"! Go YOU!
