Long Beach

Today we went to Long Beach to visit the Aquarium of the Pacific. The boys have been here with their grandparents before, but it has been a very long time!

It is amazing how years can pass and yet when you revisit a place the memories come back like it was yesterday. The last time we were here Dane was in a stroller and Aidan was riding on his grandfather’s shoulders. The boys didn’t really remember it, I have to admit. But the adults remembered everything – even what we ate!

We made more special memories today that I hope we will remember like it was yesterday for years to come. The boys are old enough now.

We saw some pretty sites while here too.

Of course my favorite was this one:

The boys swam again after the aquarium and by dinner time we were all exhausted. This picture says it all for Aidan and I.

The guys were holding up a bit better.

Tomorrow is our last day with family here. It is sure to be fun and emotional all at the same time.

So, I am wondering, how often do you get to visit out of state family?
