NHL Stadium Series Sharks VS Kings

I had the opportunity to attend the Outdoor game with my buddy John and his son last night. Pure specticle. But it was fun to be a part of it all. It will probably be as close as I'll ever get to attending the Stanley Cup Finals or Super Bowl (I know, different sport but who can afford tickets to that?)
Speaking of the Super Bowl,Levi's Stadium, City planners and transportation services are encouraged to work to fix the massive problems and chaos caused when an event ends and 70,000+ people try to leave. Two hours to get 20 miles is pretty ridiculous.
Anyway, despite that and seriously lack luster play by the men in teal (both sides really) lending to a 2-1 loss, here are some photos of the event:

Little J meets the ice girls.
Lots of people, and a cover band on the stage.

Up the escalator.
Not to our seats...yet.
Finally, looking over the field. State of California...nice touch.
View from our seats.
In front of the rink...then my phone died. Fun times in a different venue. Thanks to John and Little J for the memories! Go Sharks!

Monterey Bay Aquarium 2/20

Took the day off to take the fam back to the MBA. Even saw whales spouting off toward the horizon! No pix of that but fun times.  Wish the Tentacles exhibit was bigger but great display.
Cool new statuary recognizing Monterey's famous/founders.
Sand dollars...there's like fifty bucks in there.
We love you MBA!

Jamba Juice

What used to be a "every so often" thing has become a weekly tradition. I take the kids to Jamba on Fridays after school.  This is getting expensive but at least it's fun to share this experience with them.

Ice Skating for the Second Time

Daughter wanted to go ice skating so she and I went over to Sharks Ice in SJ.  She practiced holding some buckets for a while but started to get the hang of it. Even found some friends.
