Family Fun: A Trip To The Monterey Bay Aquarium Day 2

Family Fun: A Trip To The Monterey Bay Aquarium Day 2

In total, we spent a day and a half at the aquarium, but I think we actually could have stayed longer. There is so much to enjoy and see. The fish, sharks, and turtles are always doing something amazing.

If you have a chance, I highly recommend taking a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium before the end of the year to see the seahorse exhibit. Here’s a picture of my favorite sea dragon in the exhibit. If you don’t look carefully, you could easily mistaken it for a plant! They are so graceful floating by with beautiful fluttering gills on the back and sides of their neck. There were so many beautiful seahorses and sea dragons, it was hard to choose a few pictures but here’s our other favorite. I loved how they grouped together and used their tails to hold on.

The Registry List

registering for baby (500 x 328)

Pregnancy can often be a time of bliss and joy; it can be a time of excitement and thrill! It can also be a time to be scared out of your mind on how to care for a newborn! Don’t worry, we’ve all been there, even if we say we haven’t. It’s often a time of panic of “what will this baby need?” and a lot of parents fall victim to ‘the list’. Ya know, that list that EVERY baby store will hand you once you register telling you the millions of things you’ll NEED to have in order for baby to be born. Well, let me present you with a different point of view, YOU DON’T. If you go into baby registering as most things are listed as impulse buy or not necessary then you’ll probably fare alright. Now, keep in mind there are a few essentials that you will need but 90% of that ‘list’ won’t get you any closer to raising a baby!

The #1 must have for a newborn is some sort of car seat. You legally, no matter the state, cannot bring a baby home from the hospital without one. Make sure the car seat is newborn ready, as in can go rear facing and usually take 4-5 pound babies. Believe it or not, even that extra padding and inserts they put in car seats are often not needed. Make sure your car seat is BRAND NEW or in a non-expired state. Car seat hand me downs are typically not recommended as you have no idea where that car seat has or hasn’t been (if you need some reassurance go check out my blog about our accident we had recently). There is often no way to notice any damage even from a minor car accident; for example, my son’s old car seat would have been visually fine to sell: not expired, great condition, no stains, no outside damage. However, it was involved in a ‘minor’ accident and it was located on the damaged side of the vehicle, but you wouldn’t know that by my ad on craigslist would you? Trust me, if you’ve got 9 months to prepare for baby, you’ve got time to figure out a brand new car seat (no dumpster diving on this!). Even if you’re having a home birth, you’ll still want to plan to have a car seat just in case you and baby need to be transferred to a hospital for complications; always be prepared.… [read more]
