Monterey Bay For Labor Day

This was one wild weekend! We started things off with a Stanford football game with Nate's co-residents. We next spent some time cooling off in our frog pool at home while Nate caught up on some charting. Then the fun began. We drove to Monterey Bay (it's less than 1 1/2 hrs away) to check things out. We rented these really fun bikes with a trailer for the girls (notice who's pulling the weight) and rode around the coast. We took part of the 17 mile drive to Pebble Beach and loved the ocean views. The bike lanes are so nice out here. At the hotel we took a dip in the freezing pool, but I chickened out and only went ribcage deep. Nate had some great flips with Katelyn and Sarah. We hung out and ate lots of great food. Isn't it so nice to eat and not have to clean the dishes afterward? Anyway then on Monday we spent a day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and cruised along Cannery Row. The Aquarium has so many fun exhibits for the girls. Katelyn especially loved the glass room where the tide comes over the ceiling like a waterfall. Here are some highlights from our trek:

Way cute pictures Stacy! I went to school at UCSC so I love seeing all those great pictures of so many favorite places. Have you visited main street in Los Gatos yet? I loved that place. I miss hearing your great comments in RS.

That is awesome. Amy and I went to Carmel, CA for our honyemoon. It was sweet. We went to the aquarium as well. My favorite part was the jellyfish.
