This week has been rough so far. We went up north for two weddings on consecutive weekends. Coming home Sunday night after ten days with Maggie has been tiring. We’re still trying to catch up on rest. Here’s the quick photo rundown of our trip. Sorry for the poor quality. I almost always only use the iPhone to take photos, and there is no time to post process photos anymore.
Since we have to stop every two hours for Maggie, we took the 101. There are more places to stop, including Firestone Walker.
Stop #2 was also Firestone Walker but a different location. Maggie enjoyed learning about barrel aging beers.
Maggie met her cousin Myla, who played around her rather than with her.
Maggie also got to meet her cousin Joshua. Basically none of them really acknowledged each other.
Maggie did get to play with a pool noodle lightsaber.
My cousin Jessica got married in a beautiful ceremony and reception that I would call ” very similar to ours but nicer.”
After spending time in the San Jose area, we headed down to Monterey and Carmel for a little bit, stopping by the aquarium.
Jellyfish are so cool.
Maggie was happy as a clam.
The open ocean tank was huge with sea turtles, tuna, and hammerhead sharks.
We cruised the 17-mile drive and got to see The Lone Cypress.
Point Lobos State Preserve.
After Carmel we raced to SF just to head out again across the new Bay Bridge.
We got to go to Pixar! Unfortunately there’s a pretty strict “no photo” policy on most of the campus, so pictures are limited to the lobby areas.
Most displays were for Monsters University since it was their latest release.
Luigi and Guido from Cars.
Who could forget these guys? Oooooooooooh!
Maggie got to play in her first playground.
She also got to enjoy oysters.
This guy got married. There was a lot of crying.
Maggie drove us home after a long trip. Holy crap I look exhausted.
I need a vacation from this vacation.
