The happy Couple - Joel did get a lot of compliments on his hat
After a quick rain shower - all smiles
Found a crab - wanted to see if he would come out to see us
Not a great pic, but the only one of the whole family... remember we have been at the beach all day. That explains Lauren's hair :)

Here is a video of the show put on by our dolphin friends
The following morning we headed over the zoo( I will blog it next with the Science Museum), but after the zoo we headed back to the dock for Captain Memo's Pirate Ship. This was Cooper choice. It was a two hour cruise around the bay, and I was a little worried we were be bored, because it was not a speed boat. Boy, was I wrong. We had a really good time. The crew did an excellent job of keeping everyone entertained and interested, telling pirate stories, arming all crew water pistols, firing canon's, and mustaches for the pirates. (Also did not hurt it has free beer and sodas :) ) Lauren had accidentally gotten some sun block in her eye, so that was a little damper on the fun, but she still got right in there and participated with everything. It was a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed it.

I will finish up the trip with talking about the zoo and the Museum of Science and industry in the next few days. Until then... Argggg.
