This past weekend we took a little trip to our favorite vacation spot, Carmel By The Sea, California. Friday evening and Saturday were playtime at the beach. Sunday we traveled to San Jose to see Cousin Bruce and friends Maddy and Gwenny. On Monday we took the day off and on our way home we stopped off to visit Betty Chu and her gloriously beautiful English Angora rabbits. After that, we spent the whole day at Gilroy Gardens. This place must be one of California's best kept secrets because this theme park with over 40 rides and attractions was nearly empty. We had the whole place to ourselves and didn't have to wait in any lines all day long. The girls had so much fun that we will surely have to return. I think the best part of it is the drive is only a few minutes further than to Disneyland, but without all the crazy traffic. In my opinion, this park blows away Legoland.
I guess that pretty much sums it up, so now I will just post a few pictures from our adventures. I noticed that on this post and the previous one, my pictures are coming out a little pixely, so I will just have to go back and load them differently.
