For various reasons we decided to go with the stay at home vacation this year. The main reason is our upstairs bathroom remodel has blown to epic proportions, and in fact is still not even done. Pete and I both took some time off and we had a blast home with the kids!
Grandma Liz came for 6 days, which was wonderful!
On Wednesday, Pete and I took Zach and Joey to a San Francisco Giants game. We splurged for awesome seats behind home plate and had so much fun.
On Thursday we drove to Monterey and went to the aquarium. We haven't been since Vincent was a baby. The kids loved it. We stayed the night at a hotel that turned out to be quite a dive. It sounded nice on the website and based on the price I figured it would have been a lot nicer then it was. Oh well. The kids didn't care and thought it was the greatest thing ever. We went to a restaurant that night and Christopher did great! He didn't scream once and did not throw any food. We haven't been able to take him to a restaurant in close to a year, so we are excited to have finally passed another hurdle. Woo hoo!
Chrisptopher loved the fish, but was scared of the jelly fish. Go figure.
After spending the night in Monterey, we drove up to Capitola and hung out at the beach on Friday. It was a bit cold ( I had on a sweatshirt the entire day), but again, the kids did not care and we all had a great time.
Aren't my boys handsome?
