To celebrate, I thought I would finally post some pictures from my vacation. It's kind of hard to look at them because it makes me sad knowing I won't see my sister and her family for awhile now. It was a great trip though, and gave me much more hope for fun travel as a family in the future than any of the other semi-disastrous trips we have taken to date.
|Riding the airport light rail on the way to|
the train station. BART was kind of loud
for Pacey's preferences, but I think they
enjoyed it in general
|Cousins bonding over the iPad|
|Riding the carousel at Fairyland in Oakland. The kids|
loved the park. I...did not.
|Super secret Cousin Club meeting|
|All three kids asleep on the way to Monterey. They didn't|
even make us pay for this (too much).
|Pool time in my sister's neighborhood pool|
|This kid loves the water as long as he can stick to you like a barnacle|
|The kids and their Teetee|
|A picture! Of all three of us! And we are all looking at the camera!|
|Fun afternoon at Tilden Park in Berkeley|
|It can be hard to get a real, genuine smile from Pacey but we managed it|
|Day 2: a veritable feast of "real" Mexican food (i.e. without Norwegian|
flair). I ate most of a burrito the size of my arm.
|Triple trouble at the Oakland Zoo|
|Pacey adores elephants and this was his first time seeing them "live."|
|Splash park in Concord.|
