Trip to Monterey

Monterey, California is one of my favorite places on earth!  I grew up going to the wonderful aquarium and eating clam chowder in little hole-in-the-wall restaurants.  Plus, Patrick and I got engaged there, so  I suppose I'm a little biased.  We had the opportunity to visit there this winter with my mom and to take Finn for his first trip to see the ocean.  He was more than a little skeptical of the big, cold, blue thing that kept rushing at his feet but he definitely liked the sand.  Nothing cuter than sandy baby toes.  :-)
