Our vacation in pictures

I had last week off to spend with the kiddos. Here are some photo highlights from the week. Enjoy!

On Tuesday we went hiking. These are photos from the Mission Peaks trail in Fremont, CA.

We didn't quite make it to the top. The heat started getting to us and we had to turn around.

These guys had the right idea.

These spiders and spider holes were everywhere. We shot a short video of this one catching a cricket. Which only served to remind us it was lunch time and we were hungry.

On Thursday we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Aren't the penguins cute?

Not Nemo. Not even looking for him...

You can hide, but we will photograph you.

From the jelly fish exhibit... like watching a lava lamp

Well, it looks like blogger won't let me post any more pictures. I had a couple more nice ones from the aquarium, a few from the drive around beautiful Monterey and a few from Friday when we went to the beach. It was really hot around here for most of the week so we spent a lot of time at the swimming pool. I'm back to the office this week and the kids are off to their camps. I have another week off in August just before they go back to school.... so? Back to the grind.

Post the aquariums tomorrow. I love saltwater fish. I am going to try to take a few pictures of mine if they are willing to pose.

Sounds like a well earned week of fun!! I know the kids must have had a great time hanging with mom! Those pics are great. Reminds me how much I really enjoy getting out on hikes, and how long it has been since I have been on one. I guess I had better think about getting into some sort of shape!
