An Update in Pictures

At the end of July/beginning of August, our little family traveled to the West Coast for a family reunion and catch up with friends in Sacramento.  The trip included a lovely excursion to Monterey.  KB enjoyed the wet sand and the wind in her hair.  My hubby and I also marked 5 years of marriage on July 29.

The view from our room at Asilomar.

My cousins and I explored some of the tide pools.

To celebrate our anniversary, my hubby and I took a sailboat ride around Monterrey Bay.  A sailboat ride has always been on his "bucket list."  We saw lots of jellyfish, seals, dolphins, and even a couple of sea otters.

Monterey is still cold in the summer, so it seemed oxymoronic to stand by a fireplace in July!

Carmel Mission, my favorite and one of the most beautiful of the 21 California Missions.

We actually saw blue sky on our last day in Monterey.

KB's first trip to See's Candies.  Ahh, those shops smell so good!

KB's first trip to InNOut Burger. Don't worry, she's just chewing on the straw, not drinking the ice tea. :)
