For all three of you that read my blog, I promise this is the last post about California! Since it is essentially the only "scrapbook" I am keeping up with these days, I want to make sure I cover all the highlights of our trip.
We visited Monterey one day, and Parker happened upon some pirates.
We went to Monterey Bay Aquarium which is a very well-known aquarium in the United States. Brian has always loved aquariums, so believe me, I've been to my share! This was by far the very best one we've ever been too. There were SO MANY interactive exhibits. So many things to touch, look at, play on, and read. We were there for several hours, and I'm sure we could have stayed for several more if we hadn't been so hungry!

Here's Parker comparing his size to a baby whale.

There were several stations to draw and even make books.

Now Parker IS a seahorse!

After the aquarium and lunch, we drove along the 17 mile drive. We have several great pictures, but I think I'll hold off on posting them. They will probably end up on our Christmas card. Here a few to share now though.

That's my crazy husband up there!

Our last stop was at the famous Pebble Beach golf course. Here we are standing on the first tee.

Of all the places I've visited in California, Monterey is at the top of my list! Brian and I first went to Monterey ten years ago and loved it then too!

I'm not sure you're allowed to have this much fun without me being there. :) Thanks for sharing your pics!
