hello monday {monterey, part two}

July 9th | hello monday

Hello friends and hello Monday! We are packing up from camping and traveling home today. I’m not sure I’m ready for a new week yet–how about another weekend? Today I’m sharing pics from our trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium–it was so fun!

Hello dirt and sunscreen and bug bites. Oh camping–you are so much fun, but so dirty!

Hello mountains of laundry. Is there any hope–I’m not sure!

Hello pictures to edit and memories to cherish. We love this time with friends!

Hello coloring and lego and keyboards and splashing in the ocean. Summer is magical.

Hello smores and rice krispy treats and cake. I’ve been eating so much sugar!!!

Hello missing cousins who traveled back to Omaha. We loved getting time with you!

Hello looking forward to a getaway with just Steve and I this weekend. I can’t wait! I need downtime–and we are celebrating our lucky 13th anniversary!

Hello LOVING this picture of David and Steve checking out the seahorses. It makes my heart so happy.

Hello Monday! It’s going to be a busy and crazy and fabulous week!

    Looks like it was a great trip–you have some lovely photos! Have a great week and happy anniversary.

  6. We just celebrated our 11 yr anniversary this weekend! Congratulations to you and Steve! Im a big fan of hard work in marriage in a day when so many give up when things get hard.
    I love your aquarium photos. We went to the New England(Boston) aquarium last summer on our vacation and it was amazing!
    Happy Monday:)

    I love the Monterey Bay Acquarium! So special. And happy anniversary to you and Steve. We celebrated our 10th a few weeks ago and had a fabulous getaway to Palm Springs–it was so refreshing to get away with just the two of us and no little boys! Enjoy your weekend away!!

    Happy Anniversary!

    And, yes, why does camping have to be so gross?

    This week I am saying hello to “mommy’s camp” with my two little girls, while Dad is running a digital music production summer camp out of our garage all day. Day one: almost done! Hello to a potluck with friends, a home refinance (fingers crossed!), and my first limo-ride coming right up!

    Hi Lisa, it’s my first time linking up with you but I’ve been reading your lovely blog for some time. I’m in SB so it’s been super fun to see you blogging about places I know and love all over the Central Coast.

    Happy Anniversary!
