Monterey Bay Aquarium and swimming

On Tuesday, Ella, grandma, papa and I went to the aquarium in Monterey.  We had a great day and the aquarium was absolutely incredible.  We started off in the seahorse exhibit and Ella was so focused.  She spent a few minutes at each tank just staring.  I also gave her one of my cameras and she was having so much fun taking pictures.  We spent a few hours there and Ella loved every minute of it (so did we).

Today we all went to Pier 39 and had lunch at our favorite crab place.  In the afternoon, mommy went to work out and Ella and grandma went swimming.

Grandma couldn’t believe what a great swimmer Ella has become.  They had a great time in the pool.  I’ll make a movie tomorrow.  Here are some photos.
