So...since I'm so behind on blogging...
why the "rush" to get Landry's 7th birthday post done?
Umm...because Lexie turns THREE tomorrow!
Uggh...don't even get me started.
Landry and I have a tradition where
I take him to McDonald's for lunch for his birthday. :)
He also told us that he wanted a
spaghetti dinner at Nawnie's house...
just like Auntie KK and I. ;)
For the last two years we have given Landry
the choice of having a birthday party or going on a trip.
I tried really hard to talk him into
going to DISNEYLAND...
for the first time...
but he wasn't interested in that!
Yup...you read that right...
I tried to talk him into going to Disneyland...
and he said, "No!"
What did he want instead?
In his words...
"I want to go to that place we went
to last year for your birthday."
Landry: "Yup, that's it. It is such a relaxing
place to go to."
What 7 year olds do you know of
who refuse Disneyland and instead
ask for a relaxing getaway?
So...we were left with no choice but to pack
up our bags, load up the car, and head to Monterey!
Why is he wearing blue glasses?
That's because one of his friends got glasses...
and he was sooooooo upset that he didn't have glasses, too.
He went through a 3-4 month period where he asked for
glasses pretty much everyday. ;)
Our first morning in Monterey
we headed straight to the aquarium and
headed to the giant kelp forest!
This boy LOVES touch pools.
We spent a LOT of time there...
mainly because he is so patient
that he waits FOREVER until the perfect spot
opens up for him. ;)

You can't go to the aquarium without
checking out the jellyfish!
My two guys...
checking out the wide open sea!
They had a really neat exhibit
focusing on sea birds and how they fly.
Someone refused to take a picture
in the egg.
Any guesses who?
Chad decided to get in on the coloring action!
The puffins were ready for pictures.
My kiddos...not so much!
Searching for Nemo!
These two are so much better
than a pearl!
Landry LOVED his day at the aquarium...
and as proof that he is growing up...
he ACTUALLY let let the waves
touch his feet!
