Fun in Monterey

Sam and I took a side trip on our way to Port Hueneme to visit Sam's sister Cat and her family in Monterey.  You all know how I despise car trips, but the extra 6 hours there and back weren't so bad with Sam driving the entire way and the breathtaking scenery along the coast!  (He is such a good sport.)

Isn't this gorgeous?  And this wasn't even the prettiest stop--it just happened to be one where we could pull off for pictures.

The weather was perfect and we spent the day exploring Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row (be jealous all you fellow Steinbeck lovers out there).

The marina at Fisherman's Wharf.  Sam LOVES sailboats. 

But the best part of all was just hanging out with Cat, Mark, and the kids.  They have lived in Okinawa since Sam and I started dating, so I am just now really getting to know them well.  And I love them!!! They are so fun, and I am glad we get to see them more often now.  Honestly, how could I not love these cuties? 

Ethan even sleeps in this hat :) And he puts his "treasures" (aka. trash) in the tiny pocket on it.

Matt is a sweetheart who is always willing to give big hugs.

that drive is HANDS-DOWN one of the best I've ever been on. Probably THE best! It's gorgeous! And the nice thing about road trips with the Webb boys is you never (or rarely) have to drive!
