By the Sea

This weekend we started to check off our list of things to do in Southern California.  The Snake has been dying to go the local aquarium, and it was a great day to do it.  This summer has been stressful.  Planning for our big move back east, buying a house, dealing with illness and chaos.  It was nice to have a family day out.  The Snake was super excited and focused.  Number one items were the octopus and the sharks.  Sadly the octopus was hiding, but he finally got up the courage to touch the sharks and the sting rays.  I had a great time testing the limits of my new camera.  So here is my Best Shot Monday, along with some other shots of our great day.

Despite being in the stroller most of the day, even the babies had a good time.
