To start off our Thanksgiving break, the kids and I decided to take a trip up to Santa Cruz to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and their new baby Everest. We explored all the coast had to offer including shopping, playing at the Santa Cruz pier, and visiting the Monterrey Bay Aquarium! Jaeda was out dare devil, riding the two biggest rides on the pier! We ate our weight in fried food and enjoyed every minute of it! The aquarium was amazing, our favorite part being the otter exhibit. But the best part of the whole trip was spending time with family and some old friends (it was great to see you Holly and family!) The drive was tough, but overall it was a great trip!
