MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM

Thanks to friends who lent us some guest passes, we were able to drive down to Monterey and see the aquarium yesterday. It was a really cute town and I wish we had more time to explore it but the aquarium took up most of our time - that and the stops we made along the way in Santa Cruz and at some produce stands. 10 grapefruit for $1! And they are so sweet, I'll even eat them!

 I think most of my photos were of jelly fish because I love them and they had a lot of them!





 This glass ceiling had waves crashing over it and scared Aubrey at first but she quickly began to enjoy it.

 What should we see next?



 Isn't this an awesome seahorse??

 I thought this was cool - you draw your jelly fish (or in Aubrey's case - anything) and hit a button and it moves up your screen and onto a huge screen on the wall and starts swimming along with everyone else's drawings.


Not to far away was the Dennis the Menace Park

 Have you ever gone down this kind of slide? It's all rollers - it really hurts us adults who go a lot faster than the kids!!

 Then we went to the Fisherman's Wharf for some dinner - seafood of course.

 The best part - we were home by 8pm bedtime!
