The last day together we all headed to Monterey and visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
There were bat rays you could touch. One came right up to Sophie but I couldn't convince her to touch it. Sadly it wasn't there long and the rest hung out in the back of the tank.
They had some seaweed and crabs you could touch too.
The kids liked to play area too where they could play in "tide pools"
The jelly fish area was awesome too.
After we walked to a Mexican restaurant for lunch that my parents went to on their honeymoon. It was right on the beach and the kids enjoyed watching seals while they waited for their food. Then we drove to Pebble Beach and climbed on rocks and checked out the tide pools. The girls loved finding sea shells and brought a bunch home.
On Friday our family headed to San Diego so Chad and I could take turns going to the Sand Diego Temple. We got caught in a lot of traffic and it took us a lot longer than we thought to get there, but it was well worth it! The Temple is gorgeous!
The kids did really good in the car except for a few well umm moments of Easton's high pitched screaming. But we made it home safe and the girls are already talking about wanting to go back to the ocean.
