So this video is so amazing that it gets its own post. (it doesn't count as part of the four post series)

So it is looking like the Monterey Bay Aquarium will end up in four parts. I just took hundreds of pictures and I want to share them all! So I'm trying to just post my favorites, but that is still a ton of pictures.
So with that intro, here is the second installment of images and fun aquarium stuff :)
Here is Jami and J looking into one of the largest tanks which is called the Outer Bay. This is where they have the sharks and the really big tuna and that type of stuff.
This was just fascinating! This is a big case of Squid eggs. So cool
I love looking at all the Jellyfish that they had there. There is just something about them that is so mesmerizing.
These were really cool Jellyfish. I loved their crazy mixes of color. They are called Egg Yolk Jellyfish
I stepped out onto a little pier outside and was enjoying to see the waves and watching the fog and then out in the bay there was a pod of dolphins! Just swimming right out there :)
There were these amazing touch-pools with so much cool stuff in them. Here J is 'petting' a starfish
And here J is touching one of the Kelp leaves with the help of Uncle Mike
These are some weird fish that are related to a squid. They're called Cuttle Fish

So I took like tons and tons and tons of pictures at the aquarium so I decided it might be a bit easier if I split this up.
Well it started off really foggy. Which Mike and I thought was pretty cool, because we get our mountain fog here but it's nothing like the ocean fog down there.
When we first entered the aquarium they had this cool seahorse exhibition called "The Secret Lives of Seahorses" which I am dedicating this first post to
They had the really cute baby seahorses that were at the perfect height for Jackson to peek into
There was this Seahorse that they had for people to stand around and take pictures with. The creepy part is that it's a male seahorse giving birth!
Nolan had lots of fun with his Uncle Mike!

So I know that I need to post my pictures from my totally wonderful and fabulous California trip, but my adorable puppies win the cake on the post.
So here are Brody and Tayla all dressed up for Halloween :)
You might be able to guess that Tayla is a fairy and Brody is a robot.
Though I didn't take them Trick-or-Treating at all, they still got some of the most amazing treats ever for wearing this :)
At the vet they had given me a bag of homemade peanut butter cookies for dogs so they got a bunch of those and some other amazing goodies :) Crazy what bribery will do

Here are some of the cutest videos of Tayla in her puppy class! There are four other puppies in the class. Cooper is a cocker spaniel, the littlest one is Zoey, a Chihuahua -Dachshund mix. The other two puppies get scared of others so in off leash play time they are behind a little baby gate. There is a Husky and a lab.
Just the most cutest ever!
After Brody, I think that I deserved a puppy like Tayla. She has had maybe four accidents in the house in the last three weeks. She doesn't chew on anything she isn't supposed to and she isn't a crazy little monster choking herself on the leash. What an angel :)
(But it's only been three weeks so far)

Tayla is doing so fabulous! Her and Brody have become such cute friends
She loves to just follow him everywhere and pretty much tries to tackle him all the time.
And when they go outside it is just hysterical because Brody loves to stand and sniff through the fence and Tayla loves to run headfirst into him :)
