Our Family Beach Vacation Part III

Thursday: We woke up bright and early on Thursday to get ready for our big fun day at the aquarium!  Daddy went out to get some muffins and hot chocolate while I got the girls and myself ready.  We ate and met up with grandma and them.  We loaded up in the car and drove an hour away to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  This was the first time that the girls had been there and they LOVED it.  It was so cute to see them get so excited over all the fish and sharks.

Our first stop we made once we got into the aquarium was the penguins cause they were about to have a feeding and thought that the girls might like to see that.  There were so many people there and the girls were less than impressed with it so we decided to move on and see some other stuff.

Once we looked at everything there was to look at at the aquarium we decided to head to Bubba Gumps for lunch, everyone was hungry.  We ate outside under the warmth of the heaters and enjoyed a nice lunch.  We then left and grandma wanted to go into this HUGE candy store and get some candy, so she ran upstairs to get some candy for herself and brought some candy yogurt raisins for the girls....which they loved!  We then loaded up into the car and made the hour drive back to Capitola.  We made it back around 2 and put the girls down for a much needed nap. 

We woke them up around 4 and freshened up and just the 4 of us headed out to look at some shops on 41st street.  We had a good time walking around and hanging out as a family.  Grandma and Grandpa had a date night that night.  So for dinner we found a Taco Bell near by.  Got some dinner and then headed back to our room.  We ate dinner and then relaxed with the girls.  Kaylee thought it would be fun if they threw the sheet over her, daddy and sissy and pretended to be ghosts.  Keira didn't really want to do it.  Once 8pm hit the girls were in bed and I was in my jammies relaxing and watching TV.  The best part was that daddy gave me a massage!

Friday: The day had fianlly arrived, check out day.  We woke up around 7:30am and I started packing up all of our stuff.  We would be meeting his mom around 9am to go to breakfast before heading back home.  I got the girls and myself ready while daddy loaded the car up.  Once we were ready we decided to walk along the beach one more time before we left.  We were on the beach about 15 minutes before Grandma sent daddy a text saying they were ready early.  So we met up with them and went to breakfast.  The girls were good and once breakfast was done we went back to grandma's room so that we could say our good byes and thank you's.

We had a great time and I cant wait to take more family trips in the future.
Hope you enjoyed our beach vacation pictures
