Squeezing It All In

Christmas is the busiest season of the year. Maybe when we're not traveling to Utah (if ever), it will help calm things down a bit for us. But this year before we left Long Beach we had two must-do activities remaining.
The first was the Long Beach Aquarium. I had won some passes to the aquarium earlier in the year and they would expire before we got back home. It was nice since we hadn't been there in a while.

The boys loved this little tank with about 20 tiny rays and Seth even dared to put his hand in a few times. Isaac has become quite interested in rays. I couldn't help but laugh when he asked the attendant what their names were.

We also couldn't miss our traditional trip to Naples with Grampa Lee and Pam. We went to CPK and then walked around Naples to see the lights. We noticed that on one whole side of the canal nobody was home and NO Christmas lights were up or on. We were so surprised, since usually there are lights as far as the eye can see. Then our suspicions were confirmed when we saw this:

The dual bucket arial lift made Isaac's night! It was pretty amazing to watch that massive thing move from the other side of the canal.

Thanks grandpa and Pam for a great time!
