I asked Karen if we could go to the Aquarium while Wendy was visiting and we went the Saturday after Paige's birthday to celebrate.
It was our boys' first visit and they both loved it.
It has been hot and dry for so long that Jonah is outgrowing his cute warm clothes without even wearing them. I was excited to dress him for Monterey, but it ended up not being as cool and foggy as I had hoped.
See? Sweater already off. He's probably practicing his new phrase "what's that?" which comes out as a very high-pitched "wussat!?"
Complete with pointing. He loved having Wendy here because she'd hold him and show him everything as long as he wanted.
Scott followed Lucas around.
They were talking about what fish they wanted to eat.
Jonah hung around Paige.
The aquarium is well-designed for families. There are plenty of eye-level and touchable displays even in the non-kid sections.
Jonah loved the water, as always.
And getting into things.
Scott wasn't interested in the water until Jonah started splashing. Then it was a splashfest until we stopped them.
Waiting for the wave to come in.
Scott preparing himself for the onslaught.
We all love this area.
Scott liked the penguins and talked about them for days afterward.
John squeezed in the egg.
After we saw the penguin feeding, we walked to Ghirardelli.
Both kids fell asleep on the way over, so we split a sundae just the two of us and reminisced about previous trips.
