The Monterey Bay Aquarium hosts a few FREE Homeschool days each fall and Monday was our day to participate! We had never taken our kids here before, so it was quite a treat!

I think seeing the Jellies was my favorite display.

Faith's favorite stop was the seahorse room.

The Aquarium has several kids areas throughout the displays--it is a great place for all ages! This is the girls with one of their good friends. We went to Monterey with a few other families from our homeschool group.

Hands on learning is so much fun! They had a hands on room set aside just for all of the homeschoolers.

You can go inside a tunnel and a wave crashes over you--the kids thought this was pretty cool!

The day before the Aquarium, we spent the afternoon with our good friends at the beach. This is everyone making a mad dash when an unexpected wave came in!

Seth kept telling Tim to go back for more . . . he loved when Tim waded into the water and then would tell Tim, "Water coming!" at the top of his lungs as a wave came in. He thought this was so funny!

We even found our own sea star!

If you ever get the chance to go to Monterey, there is a ton of family stuff to do. We can't wait to go back and explore more!
