After picking up a rental car yesterday (a Kia Optima…nice car), my mom and I left this morning headed for New Mexico. We overnighted in Holbrook, Arizona with stops along the way for gas and stretching. We ate dinner at Mr. Mestas in Holbrook.

As these two hand stamps show (turtle on the left, dinosaur on the right), I spent the morning into the early afternoon at the San Diego Zoo with Mary and Diana, eating lunch at the Front Street Café inside the Zoo. Then spent a couple of hours at the Natural History Museum in Balboa Park, focusing on taking more pictures of the dinosaur exhibits and watching the 3D dinosaur documentary.
