My little family, along with my sisters family, headed to Carmel for the week and to celebrate the 4th of July. My sister and I headed up early with the kids while the guys stayed back home to work.
We had an eventful first day at the coast. We started the day off at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Trent and Alex absolutely loved the Aquarium and Trent was running around the place yelling “fish!”
It was a beautiful day out and so after the aquarium we headed to have claim chowder on the water. After lunch, my niece Natalie wanted to go to the mall and get her ears pierced. Somehow Natalie convinced Alex to get hers done as well (if you know Alex and how scared of everything she is you would know that this is HUGE).
Alex did such an amazing job and didn’t complain once. We were all shocked! The only stipulation to the whole situation was that I had to get my ears pierced as well. Lucky me……
The next day all the kids and I headed to Denise the Menace park where the kids played and we rented paddle boats. From here we went to lunch, played miniature golf, got ice cream and enjoyed a lazy afternoon.
We are excited to have a few more days of relaxation and cool weather!
