Happy Birthday!!

It's A.J.'s birthday! We're not at home, so we went to Denny's for his birthday dinner. The boys had the smiling alien pancakes (no cherries) and a side of colored goldfish. Appetizing, isn't it? Afterwards, he got to pick a dessert, so he chose the very large piece of chocolate cake. They didn't have any candles, but several waiters came and sang to him. He was pretty happy about all of it. He and Levi shared the cake, Aaron and I nabbed a few bites. They devoured it awfully fast, but I managed to get a few pictures of them working on it.

We also went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium today. It's an amazing place. They have the most sharks I have seen in an aquarium, along with several very large tuna and giant sea bass. A.J. really wanted to see the penguins, and was rewarded with one tapping its beak on the glass right in front of him. Levi's greatest desire was to see the jellyfish. Wow. MBA has a jelly exhibit like no other. Several tanks with as many varieties. Some were colorful, others completely transparent. We got a couple of shots of the boys in front of the sea nettles. I'm not so sure why Levi was pouting in the second one, but it's cute anyway.

Tomorrow it's farther south, and some oceanic kayaking, which I am really looking forward to. And then...HOME!


  1. So glad you had a wonderful birthday, AJ. We love the pictures of the boys and the aquariums. We enjoyed chatting with AJ and Levi last night. Hope you all had a lot of fun kayaking today. Have a safe journey home. Oh how sweet it is, Home Sweet Home! Thank you for sharing your trip with us.
