The Aquarium

My mom is a jewel. Jed had a meeting up in Sandy one afternoon and so we took a Grandma field trip down to the aquarium. The girls loved it! We had a great time walking around and seeing all of the exhibits, the girls would literally leap from aquarium to aquarium to see the new things.

I think the thing they loved the most was touching the stingrays. Initially they weren't interested. Right as we got to the exhibit, they were getting ready to feed them and there were tons of people and I made the girls fold their arms so they weren't tempted to put them in the water. They lost interest quickly and so we traipsed over to see the seahorses, a few feet away. We then ventured back to the stingrays and it took a lot of coaxing to get the girls to be ready to leave, they loved it so much.

Bubba was so good in his stroller, as usual and I got very grossed out by the octopus. I wasn't a huge fan before, and then Pirates 2 came out and Davey Jones Locker pushed me over the edge with his octopus face. It makes me a little squeamish.

The girls were making their best attempts at pulling a fish face. I am so glad they didn't succeed!


  1. Your kids are so stinkin' cute! I miss you all so much!

  2. You have the CUTEST kids! And I love that the little guy looks JUST like you. Thanks for blogging so I can stalk :)

  3. Well done the fish faces Ruby and Emma! They must have had an excellent teacher. :)
