Last month we took a trip down to Monterey to celebrate our boys' birthdays. We asked the older two if they would like a friend party or a family adventure this year, and they agreed on the adventure! We easily decided on the Monterey aquarium, a spot Jeff and I had visited before having any kids at all. We knew they would love it, and they did! Although, they might have enjoyed the hotel room and breakfast buffet more. Apparently our children have very simple taste...
The aquarium is awesome! It's quite large, but not overwhelming, although we did go two days in a row, which was key to being able to see everything without rushing.
Lots of gorgeous fish!
Crazy looking sun fish.
Jellyfish. A favorite of mine.
Checking it out!
Amazing sea dragons.
Obligatory, but not very good, family shot.
