Monterey Bay Aquarium

October 5, 2015 10 Comments

My sister’s boyfriend won tickets to Monterey Bay Aquarium on the radio and couldn’t go. So he gifted the tickets over to me and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I love the aquarium. It is one of my favorite places to go. We used to have a membership, but we didn’t renew it this year. We might have to, because the kids simply love it!

  

We got there early enough to check out the majority of feedings. We saw an albatross, the sea of kelp, penguins and sea otters get fed. The kelp feeding was amazing. You don’t even think of the plants as being that alive until you see them feed. 

Birdie was completely over the moon. I like to surprise her with excursions so she had no idea that we were headed there. She wanted to see “everything” first and had no idea what she wanted to do. She loved lunch because she was able to pick whatever she wanted to off of the menu. 
  

I love seeing the Penguins. They like to swim up to the glass and just play with you. They’re the most playful creatures at the aquarium aside from the sea otters. The sea otters were great. I couldn’t get a decent picture, because there were so many people in front of the exhibit. 

They also had puffins, which I think are just as fun as the Penguins. They were just the cutest little animals. 

  
  

Jellyfish are my favorite. They changed up the exhibit from the last time I was there. I was a little sad about that, but I still get to see them! I only like to see them in aquariums. I saw them last year at the beach and it didn’t end too well for me. 

 

We stayed until closing and walked around the Cannery for a bit. It was the perfect day, perfect weather.

  • Bring me back to Christmas Day dinner 🍴 I wish I could have some lobster tails 🦞 almost every day. This was such an awesome meal. ⁣

What do you eat when you celebrate for different holidays?  We do ham on Easter, turkey on Thanksgiving, and callaloo for New Years. I can’t wait for Chinese New Year - that’s my favorite meal 🧧 ⁣

  • The rain is gone! It’s so sunny ☀️ And it’s supposed to be in the high 60s for about a week - so excited 🎉⁣
⁣
The older kids got electric scooters for Christmas🎄 but haven’t been able to take them out because of the rain. Now we are going out multiple times a day. It’s good exercise. No major injuries, yet. ⁣

  • Checking out this bourette silk tester, Everdeen from @waywardwovens has been fun. I love checking out new fibers and seeing their wrap qualities. I’ll  have a more in-depth review on the blog later this week 💕⁣

  • I was so excited to try out these #japanesecosmetics! I’ve heard so many good things about @cureaquagelofficial and it’s always sold out on different websites. I was #gifted these products to try out. ⁣
⁣
The #naturalaquacuregel has been amazing with this winter weather. My skin has not been agreeing with it. It’s so dry and flaky - which has really ceased with the use of the #gentleexfoliator. ⁣

We had a fun Christmas! It’s always wonderful to get together and see everyone. A is already back at work and the kids have cabin fever. They want out, but it’s rainy and wet. They want to play with their new toys 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ ⁣⁣

How did you end up celebrating?⁣⁣
