Visit to Monterey Bay Aquarium

Saturday, June 29, 2013

Today we took a road trip to Monterey to visit the aquarium. Simon has been asking to go see the sharks and tuna fish. He also wanted to see angler fish but they are not on exhibit. It’s all because of a song called “slippery fish” that they sang at story time at the library.

However we were a bit late getting out of the house and had a somewhat long journey with some traffic. We had to stop a few times along the way to stretch our legs. Iris was fussy being in the car seat and had to get out to nurse so we made a gas station stop. Her happy face after filling her tummy.

Simon got a watermelon lollipop at the gas station.

We stopped at a place called Chopstix for lunch. I had the BBQ chicken banh mi for lunch. The meat was both spicy and heat-hot. Pretty good for $3.50.

Grandpa Chung played with Iris while we finished our meal.

We finally made it to the aquarium!

Simons favorite thing to see all day were the sharks. I personally was happy to see the turtle.

After the aquarium, we had a quick snack at Pinkberry. Simon had chocolate with strawberries, mochi, and chocolate crisps.

I tried the cucumber sunflower Greek yogurt which also had olive oil and chili pepper. Overall it was a bit bland and not too appetizing. Next time I will stick with something sweet.

We ended the day with dinner at Mama Chen’s in Santa Clara, yummy Taiwanese food. Ron was happy.

It was over 100 degrees in Walnut Creek today so I was glad to escape the heat as it was more than 20 degrees cooler in Monterey.
