Monterey Bay

This last weekend we packed up the Family and headed out to Monterey Bay, for a relaxing weekend we all needed During Valentines Day. Though it was overcast and rainy we had a wonderful trip. Saturday was great and Christopher sure did enjoy all the fishy. Many great pics of Chris little back, to excited to turn around and let mommy take his picture. After we left the Aquarium the little guy fell asleep, so Jaime woke him up when we got over to Dennis the Menace Park. (funny story he just took off running and went straight for all the water, so we just let me play in his wet clothes) Then when we got back in the car and to the hotel he refuse to take a nap, so we kept him awake, and when we left for dinner, of course he went to sleep. Slept all the way through dinner and woke when dinner came. What a night mare. all those couple got to spent their romantic night with a 2 year old scream, so box it up we said, and we all ate in bed at the hotel ;)

We cant wait for our next trip there, this summer. Who knows maybe we will make it a camping trip.

Banana Bread


1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in the egg and mashed bananas. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt just until combined. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. If top begins to brown too quickly, decrease heat slightly. Center should be soft and chewy, while the outside, crisp and crunchy.

You cant tell in this picture above, but christopher just poured the eggs on the counter LOL. He love to make a mess, and to mix everything together..... Maybe one day he will be our little chef... There are still many years to come..... But i do love that our counter is so long, that he can just sit up on top of it...

Yum Yum in his Tummy!!!!!
