Monterey Thanksgiving

We went to Monterey for Thanksgiving and ended the trip with a drive down to Bakersfield to go to a freind's wedding. On TG, we went to the aquarium and a great Thanksgiving buffet. Reagan loved seeing everything, especially the sea otters. She was afraid to touch the sea cucumbers and starfish though.

The next day, we walked to Dennis the Menace Park. She loved this too of course ... it's such a great park, we didn't even feel bored there!

Saturday, we drove to Bakersfield for Dale and Donna's hawaiian/pirate themed wedding (Reagan wanted "mau" dancing and music even though she was yawning and rubbing her eyes every few minutes). Sunday, we drove home ... almost 5 hr drive, but she did great. Driving through the valley, there isn't much to look at, so Reagan was pointing out all the "EBD's" (road signs) and every "bus", which included trucks, motorhomes, and buses. We explained that the motorhomes were like buses so I decided to call it a "motorhome bus" as if it were a type of bus. She repeated "mo mo bus hum".

Here's a random shot at PF Chang's where we found out she likes "chicken fried rice". This was my chinese restaurant meal until I was like 20 or something. It was chicken fingers until at least age 15 at every other restaurant. Anyway, this huge serving spoon was way more fun to eat with than her little Elmo fork.
