Then we headed up to Monterey – we tacked on a couple extra days to my conference to make a little vacation out of it. We scored guest passes to the Aquarium (thanks so much, Kim!) and Calvin really enjoyed it.



The weather was very nice most of the time, and we went on lots of walks:

It was a good trip. Calvin traveled well – no major problems. But traveling with a baby is a lot of work and requires a lot of stuff! We had a good time but were all glad to get back home again.
