The Aquarium

Today we took Ace to the aquarium, a lot of the morning it was kind of overcast and we had spend many recent Sundays in the parks so we thought we'd try for something different and I was not about to attempt the zoo for a third time. So we drove to the aquarium and what fun we did have.

Ace was fascinated by the giant fish tank when we first walked in. We learned that the side that we all look through is a piece of glass that is 20'x40' and is 12.1" thick! Quite expansive and full of all sorts of unique fish to look at. We also got to see sea lions, and otters another form of kiiiiitheee (or cat) according to Ace. Ace was of course fascinated by the obligatory tank which I am certain every aquarium around the world now has the Nemo and Dori tank and all the bubbles. Everywhere there were bubbles that is what caught his attention first. He loved all the birds in the bird section and just enjoyed observing more than anything. He even got to play pee-a-boo with a scuba diver that was feeding the fish. He had a nice day.

We topped it off by wandering around the piers and stopping by an arcade which contained a carousel and so Ace enjoyed cautiously observed and partook in his first carousel ride. Although in the picture he looks terrified nervous, for the most part he was fine and just looking around. But to say he was thrilled and screaming "again, again!" would be a far cry.

Stopping by from SITS, happy Monday! Awww, it looks like you guys had a great time. I just took my 15-month-old to the aquarium for the first time a few weeks ago, and his favorite part was totally the Nemo tank.

Looks like a blast! Your son is beautiful! His eyes are so big. My husband and daughter are both very into aquariums.

I just stumbled across your blog and really like it. I'm looking forward to checking out more. I am also a "legal minded" mommy, though at this point I am not able to stay home.

Looks like a new kind of experience for your son, as you can tell by the pictures. Seems like he is fascinated by the aquarium in that picture. These experiences are always so worthwhile. Nice to stop by again.
