Monterey Bay Aquarium

We're trying to get a few things in before Sean starts school on Monday and one of the things on our list was the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was a ton of fun and I think we'll be going to Monterey more often now that we know how close it is.

Family picture time.

Las Vegas

Right before we moved we got a chance to visit our friends, The Lillards, in Las Vegas. We had a really good time and we hope to visit again, sometime.

Here's Lolly, Ava and Brian. Aren't they a cute family?

The Bellagio was so awesome. Think Ocean's Eleven.

We also got to see our good friends My and Craig in Las Vegas before they moved to Texas. They moved to the area that Sean served his mission so Sean is very familiar with their new home town. We miss you guys!

It's been too long

We got a chance to do a lot of fun things this summer and one of them was to go to some water slide parks. This Water park was in Sacramento and I use to go to it when I was a little kid so I wanted to go back and see if it was still as big as I remembered it.

Here is a picture of the kids area of the park with the Pirate ship. Totally cool, Merrick loved it.

I've been trying to take more family pictures of the three of us so here's one at the water park.

We finished off the day with my dad showing Merrick how to eat cookies and milk. If you can see, Merrick's interpretation of dunking his cookie is placing his whole fist in the milk, my dad kept telling him okay, that's enough, okay, it was pretty darn cute.
