Monterey: Part 2



Finally...here are a few more pics from our trip down to Monterey. It is such a cool city - possibly my favorite California coastal stop (minus So-Cal that is).
Above: Carter on a sweet bench outside a shop on our walk to/from the Aquarium.


Yo ho, Yo ho, a pirates life for me.

Every flavor of Saltwater Taffy you can imagine. AwEsOmE!


Monterey sunset.



So, we saw SO MANY dolphins and sea lions out in the water from our hotel, but, I am not quick enough with the camera to spot them, position my camera and snap the shot before they've disappeared, so water ripples is pretty much all I got. Lame.




Blow this one up. You can see it a little better. ;)



Me & Gavin on the beach. (It was frigid, by the way.)



Carter running from the waves.

Grandma & Granddad with the kids...running from the waves. I was happy to snap the shots rather than stick my toes in the icy water. Mike & Debbie, you guys are good sports!


Sand dolloar someone found.

After playing on the beach, showering all the kids and dressing them in the only things left that were dry/clean (their pajamas and/or clothes from the day before), we headed over to this amazing park - the Dennis the Mennis Playground - HUGE & FREE! That's what I'm talkin' about. :)

There were tons of play structures, bridges, mazes, slides, etc., but once the kids found this roller slide, we were all hooked. Pretty sure the kids went down it at least 50 times.




So FUN!




Oh ya, there was also this old train there that you could climb all over. The front of it was just like the one on Polar Express...made me wanna go home and watch the movie.


We had a FaBuLoUs time over there in Monterey - it was the perfect getaway during Brandon's week off and we were so glad Brandon's parents could come with us!
