Trip to the Aquarium

Presidents' Day 2010

With the day off of school (and a free voucher) we decided to take the kids to the aquarium, which we hadn't visited since before it's move several years ago. Of course I forgot the voucher (and didn't even think about it until we pulled into the parking lot!), but Sarah reasoned with me that since we were already there, we should just fork out the extra cash for the visit. I'm glad that we did. The kids were thoroughly engrossed with all the different animals! I loved looking at the jellyfish, Sarah the octopus, Audrey's favorite was the Bird Eating Spider, Kate's the stingrays, and Isaac couldn't get enough of the giant fish found in the Amazon River! Hey, we enjoyed it enough that we bought season passes for the family (which was only double what we'd already paid to get in). We're excited for a return visit to see the penguins in a few months!
