Life on the fly

This past 3-day weekend was quite the adventure for Tori and I.
We had the pleasure of staying with some friends in Monterey.
Instead of starting this post off with a paragraph of information,
I'm going to just dive right into the photos.
You'll need to read the captions to get the whole story :)
Enjoy!

Stay away from this stuff unless you enjoy the feeling of a stingy, itchy rash
wherever it touches your body.

Some of the trees along the coast had this beautiful,
bright orange moss growing on them.

A lot of the old people around town like to volunteer their time and
become a docent (tour guide) to the area.

Can you spot the deer? This is as close as it would let me get.

Watched the sunset at "Cardiac Beach" and got this
shot of that little boy digging himself into a hole.

We had the privilege to sleep on an Aero bed.
Best night's sleep I've ever had on a blow-up mattress.

We walked to the Monterey Bay Aquarium
so I was able to snap this photo on the way.

After our 10 hour scenic drive from Monterey to Ontario,
we met up with my parents at Benihana's
for some amazing Japanese food.

After dinner, Tori dropped me off at Denny's in
Yucaipa to meet up with two of my best buddies.
Justin, who just got engaged a few weeks ago,
 asked me to be his best man! I am honored
and totally excited to start planning everything.

That ended a very eventful and action-packed weekend for Tori and I. We are blessed to have such great friends and family. Hope you enjoyed!
