Grammy and Grampy came in from Indiana for the weekend, and on the morning of the big day, those of us who didn't have to go to work (everyone but Matt) headed down to Santa Cruz to check out the Seymour Marine Discovery Center.
It was a really neat place, with all sorts of underwater creatures to see...
And it was located on a beautiful spot on the coast.
And then made our way to the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk for some good old fashioned rides.
[I'm really hoping that this license plate isn't available when Alice turns 16.]
A quick snooze in the car, and the birthday girl was ready to continue the celebration at home with a family cookout and cake.
It was the perfect way to celebrate our sweet girl.
