Welcome, 2011!

Whoever thought up paper grocery bags without handles was an idiot. I know this sounds random, but bear with me for a second. Why would a bag that is supposed to be carrying milk, eggs, produce, and the like not have handles? Keep in mind that these are all things that generally people do not want to drop and have spill all over the floor, which is typically what happens when one is carrying (or trying to carry) three handle-less bags.

My family generally tries to bring our own reusable bags to the grocery store, but on occasion we forget. Today just happened to be one of those days, and add rain to the situation and the dumb paper bags didn't stand a chance. Luckily, they didn't rip until we were already inside the house.

Anyways, I hope you all had a great New Years. It was rather sunny yesterday, so my family and I (being the non-traditionalists that we are) spent the day at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. It was a nice drive up, with few cars on the road, classic rock, and enough sunshine to satisfy everyone. We beat the crowds to the Aquarium, and were leaving by the time the rest of the world decided to show up.

The sea horses have always been my favorite part of the Aquarium, but my little cousin (who we had with us) was more fond of the sharks and sting rays, as he could actually touch them. This car, while obviously not on display at the Aquarium, was one of the many gorgeous old cars we saw while driving along the coast.

It's 2011, folks! Let's make it worth something!
