California Fun, Part 1

On Saturday we returned home from a great trip to California to visit David's parents and extended family.  We had a great time, and did a lot of really fun things.  Here's a low-down of the first part of our week in Cali:

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and had an amazing dinner of ribs and veggies.  On Sunday we went to church, then had family dinner at David's Grandma's house.  It had been 2 and 1/2 years since the last time we were in California, so it was great to see people.

On Monday, we hit the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  We took along Molly's little cousin Lily, and the two girls had a blast together looking at all the cool fish, and playing in the kid's area.  We've been wanting to go to the Aquarium for some time now, and it was well worth it!
Molly loved the area where you could touch the rays and the star fish.  She's definitely a hands-on girl!
In the "wave" tunnel.
Silly girls.  Of course we didn't get one picture where any of them were looking at the camera.
Aw, what a cute family, right?
After the aquarium, we headed to the beach.  Molly has been begging to go to a beach for I don't know how long, so we knew if we did anything in California, the beach was a must.  And of course, she loved it.  We wanted to go again later in the week, but Molly ended up getting sick. 
Molly and Lily got right to work in the sand.  Someone left them a big hole to play in...how nice of them!
Emma stuck with me...she didn't venture in to the sand this time.  I'm OK with that.
Grampy and the grand-girls.


On Tuesday we hung out around home and I had the chance that afternoon to do some hair-cuts.  That's always fun for me.  Coming up later...Happy Hollow and Molly's birthday party.
