We went to Monterey (stayed in Pebble Beach) for Spring Break this year. We spent time at the aquarium (of course), but also went whale-watching and fed some beach squirrels.

Jake & Drew (and dad, Oma, and Granddaddy) went out on Monday and saw a family of Gray Whales (with a calf); we also saw lots of dolphins, otters, and sea lions. Drew & Granddaddy went out again on Friday and saw some Humpbacks breaching (not pictured).


This year's party was at the Pleasanton Valley Pool Club -- we hosted lots of friends for a ginormous pool party.

Jake does the alphabet in order, using a toy on the fridge:

I got a bunch of Yahoo! instant messenger emoticon fridge magnets from work. Jake likes to imitate their expressions.
