California!!! (Warning: Picture & Video overload) :)

It was so nice to be able to get out of Nevada for the weekend...the weather was great in California.  It was a little chilly at times, but it was so much better than the hot heat, and crazy humidity we've been having here.  We headed out Friday night and stayed at grandma & grandpa's house, then we took off Saturday morning to head to the park where Manny's Aunt & Uncle were throwing a birthday party for his cousin Saira, she turned 4 (I remember when she was still a little baby...time flies!)  So here's Adrian at the park...

Adrian walked all the way over to the playground with his Abuelita & cousin Saira :)
 So cute (blurry, but I thought it was too cute not to post)

 Adrian got to play on the bounce house for the first time (daddy had fun too) :)

 Manny and "the other woman" LOL...huge cinderella pinata

Adrian hates the grass so much on his hands that he won't leave the blanket...nice thing because we don't need a playpen to keep him contained then (for now) hahaha

 At about 5:30pm we left Saira's party & headed to Tiffany's surprise b-day party...Adrian got to play with his cousin Andrew for the first time and there were times that they startled each other...I don't think Andrew is used to little people crawling after him, and Adrian certainly isnt used to little people running/walking towards him...Its amazing that they're only 22 days apart!!
 Andrew giving Adrian kisses awww :)
 They both love balls...

 We spent the night again at grandma's house on saturday, then Sunday morning she made us a yummy breakfast, and we headed to Santa Monica around noon.  The weather was cool there, definately not bathingsuit weather, but it was still nice enough to walk around on the pier...

 We stopped at a restaurant at the end of the pier to have lunch...Manny tried to get Adrian to color...but all he wanted to do was eat the crayon
 So we got him some crackers to chew on instead...

And we even got our picture taken :)

 After lunch, we walked around the restaurant to see the view from the end of the pier...Adrian wasn't impressed hahaha
 So we started walking back to try & find the aquarium

It was a tiny little aquarium under the pier, but they had some sharks...
 and fish...

 ...and Adrian thought they were pretty cool :)

 they had jellyfish...
 and starfish...
 and this was a Lobster, thought to be 25 years old!!  it was huge!

 So while I'm looking at the anemonies & fish (pictured above) Manny says "It looks like there's placenta's in there...there's placentas"  & I thought he was being overly dramatic like always, so I just laughed and told him he was so random with the stuff he says...then I had a look for myself...
 They actually had live sharks growing in the tank!!!  In the picture above you can see the shark (red color) and yolk (round ball at bottom)...and he was swimming around in the sack...crazy!

 Once we had left the aquarium, the sun came out, so we walked out to the beach & Adrian got to play in the sand for a little :)  He liked it much better than grass :)

 We went back to the hotel for a little R&R...this was one of the nicest hotels I've sayed in, and would definately stay there again (www.sheratondelfina.com) ...some reviews people gave it on google were awful, so we were worried before we arrived, but it exceeded our expectations & I'm glad we stayed there

 View from our balcony...you can see the ocean :)

 Ready to head home!!
 Manny & Adrian waiting outside the hotel for our car...
 The price we must pay to keep little man happy...messy messy boy...LOL

That lasted only so long...luckily he fell to sleep about 10 mins after this picture \/ \/ \/ was taken :)

So that was our trip!  We had fun, and I can't wait to do something like that again...now that I've seen how much Adrian enjoyed the little aquarium, I would really like to take him to sea world :)  (plus, I've never been there & would love to go myself) :)

Hope you enoyed the pics & videos!
