How long has it been since you decorated Easter eggs? It had been far too long for us, so on Feb 18th, I sent out an email to all our friends to have them save the date of March 28th to come over and dye eggs with us.
Theresa and I were off work today and decided we needed to go to Disneyland. After all, we’re nearing the anniversary of Ian’s very first trip to Disneyland ever!
Here’s Ian a little over 11 months ago.
And here’s Ian today!
What a difference a year makes! The Easter Bunny on the other hand hasn’t changed a bit.
Theresa and I are off work today and figured there’s no better place to spend the day than Disneyland. There’s a couple fun events going on that we were excited to do today. The first is an Easter Egg Scavenger hunt around Disneyland.
T’s cousin Michael, his wife Lindsey, and their daughter Macy came out to visit. They spent the first few days at our house hanging out, then spent their last 3 days at Disneyland. After work on Tuesday, T, Ian, and I hopped on the freeway and joined them.
Theresa’s cousin Mike, Lindsey and their daughter Macy all came to visit us in March.
On the plane, Macy kept saying she wanted to see Ian.
It’s Saturday and it’s our last day in Monterey with my brother Jon and his family.
Continuing our day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
This next section was enclosed in glass and every few seconds a giant wave would come crashing over you. Emma is waiting in anticipation.
One of the cool things I learned about the Monterey Bay Aquarium tanks is that it’s not a closed system. All the water for the tanks comes from the bay and goes right back into the bay. During the day filters are turned on so the water is clear enough for people to see the fish. At night the filters are turned off and regular sea water containing microscopic food comes in. Cool.
Theresa, Ian and I joined my brother and his whole family up in Monterey for the weekend. Number one on our list of things to do was the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Surely I don’t need to explain what a Dole Whip is. This tasty treat is a staple for many who visit Disneyland. Produced by the Dole Food company, this dessert was previously only found at Disney parks and in Hawaii. Lately though, they have expanded their offerings to other places.
Sunday is finally here and it’s Dapper Day!
