Headed to the West Coast to visit Aunt Jess and Bryan. It was amazing!
The jetlag and margaritas put me right to sleep
I had fun in the hotel room
Then Daddy and I woke up early and welcomed the cleaning staff
Don't talk to me until I've had my coffee
Hanging poolside with Aunt Jess..
..And checking out Santa Monica
Then our roadtrip began (my first)
Stopped at a mission in Santa Barbara
And had some excellent guacamole and watermelon drink
Then it was time to hike through the botanical gardens
In Solvang we ate pastries and enjoyed the tourist scene
Leaving my mark
Mastering the iphone
Another day, another coffee cup
Exploring Morro Bay
The wind in my hair
Hiking with Daddy
We did some window shopping in San Luis Obispo...
...And explored Bubble-gum Alley (smells good)
Elephant seal-watching (it was windy)
Checking out the Big Sur coastline
I did not want my picture taken
Daddy and I hiked through the redwoods
A few tomato slices and I was back in the game
Next, in Monterey we visited Fishermans Wharf
And went to the Aquarium
I got to touch lots of things and get wet
Bryan chased me in the tunnels
And I saw lots of fish bigger than me!
I loved Monterey. Can you find me in these Steinbeck murals?
In Carmel I admired the Pacific
Drove North to Wine Country, we had lots of fun here!
Weird stuff everywhere!
Joined some great tours
Waiting around while the adults take their time..
Aunt Jess and I had fun playing
While the adults partied, I helped clean up
Mommy took us to the hot springs in Napa
It was rejuvenating!
Double grape juice, please, straight up
Cheese and crackers, the highlight of my day
Lots of grapes
After a day of tasting it's important to have a big meal. Is the halibut fresh?
Flirting with the waitstaff (as usual)
I loved wine country! Thanks for showing us a good time Leslie, we'll be back!
Finally, in San Francisco we drove down crazy streets
and rode a carousel....
and sampled good food...
and checked out the scene...
and still woke up early...
and navigated hills (don't let go, Daddy).....
and had FUN!
All this travelling wears a man out.Thanks California! I'll be back!
