Amazing Grace

This is one of the best movies I have seen. Great inspirational movie. My mother-in-law gave this to us and we loved it. Below is an overview of the movie.

From the makers of Ray, AMAZING GRACE tells the inspiring story of William Wilberforce and his passion and perseverance to pass a law ending the slave trade in the late 18th century. Several friends, including Wilberforce's minister, a reformed slave ship captain who penned the beloved hymn Amazing Grace, urge him to see the cause through.

Beach House!!

We went to San Diego last weekend and rented a beach house. The family went so we could see Sean play baseball against San Diego. We had the best time ever. The house was literally 50 steps from the beach and we were right next to Belmont Park along the boardwalk. I recommend this to anyone!

We also went to Sea World. I haven't been to Sea World since I was 6 or 7 so I was really excited. The dolphin show was the best. I can't believe people can train those animals. We then had had lunch with Shamu, not litterally but they have a buffet right nest to the killer whales. It is a special mini show. There were 4 killer whales doing tricks right in front of us. It was very cool.
We also went to the Wild Animal Park. It was great to see animals in their environment and not in a cage.

And then of course the best part of the trip was seeing Sean hit a homerun and a triple and kick butt. He had the biggest fan club at the games. During the game they would have the video camera's scan the crowd for people "dancing". Well I was the lucky one that got on the huge screen. Sean was laughing in the outfield. Let's just say he was a little embarrassed!
