.long beach aquarium.

Although Disneyland was one of the highlights of the trip, we also got to visit the Long Beach Aquarium. Both kids and adults were fascinated at all the exhibits. We got to see divers feed sharks, eels, and fish. (I think there were sharks...anyway). There was also a touch tank and you could touch the sting rays. So cool! There were otters and jellyfish and fish fish and more fish.

After the aquarium, we all headed to Grandma Barbara's friend's, Henri, house in Lakewood.  We all had a fun time talking story and catching up with Henri, her husband Raul, and daughter Marlea.  Henri also made some delicious food...and they even had tortillas from New Mexico because that's where Raul is from!  Too bad we all had just eaten lunch right before heading to Lakewood, but that didn't stop us from eating more.  :) And miss Kaiya...the bottomless pit...decided to help herself to handfuls of animal cookies and milk.  Marlea's daughter and the three kids sat down on the porch and took some great photos together.  Which reminds me, I should probably send a copy over to Henri.
We also got a chance to have dinner with some of Grandma Barbara's side of the family.  Aunty Aileen was just on Kauai so it was a treat to see her again so soon!  Same goes for Aunty Nan.  Kaiya, Kaytin and Caleb all had a chance to meet their baby cousin Sienna.  Sienna is only four months younger than Kaiya. We also got to BBQ with some of Papa Harry's side of the family.  It's always fun seeing the California family...and it just makes us miss them so much more.  Hopefully it won't be as long until we visit them again.
There is a lot more that we did on this Fall 2010 California trip, but I didn't get a chance to catch in on (digital) film.  I hope you enjoyed the three-post recap of our trip.
