pictures from our aquarium trip

We left at 8am for a 90 mile drive to the coast. It took 2 hours to get there. I didn't know that you had to drive thru the mountains to get to the ocean. I didn't plan that part of the trip very well. This is what we saw once we came out of the mountains. We were all excited because I am the worse winding road mountain driver. The curves scare me. I drive a Durango and they do not hug the turns.

Once we arrived in Newport we stopped at Burger King to eat breakfast, as you can see my son was very tired. He is 17 and it is summer, he was not happy about leaving at 8am

My nephew and daughter, they were happy
we had lots of fun, after the aquarium we decided to drive the pacific coast highway home and stop at a beach along the way to have a picnic lunch. It was another 120 miles of winding roads but we had the ocean on one side. We stopped at a famous lighthouse. I will post about that on Monday and I will post more pictures. Have a safe and fun 4th of July weekend:)

Hey Dana
Your daughter looks so tiny with the boys!
I hope things are going well with your nephew being there.
