Here Fishy, fishyyyy.

One of the amazing gifts we got this year for Christmas from my brother and his awesome wife was a year pass to the aquarium. A YEARLY PASS, dude! That is amazing. We love it!

And it's the gift that keeps on giving if you ask me.

Totally thrilled about that.

So this past Friday (the same day Declan got tattooed) morning, we packed up early and headed off to show Emeline the aquarium for the VERY first time. It was a hit. I managed to take some video of her excitement while there (at the end), and got a few photos. It's so hard getting good pictures when it's so dark inside aquariums.

And if you're wondering why the hippo & birds? They had a special Africa Exhibit going on :)

A peek into our Adventure Aquarium trip:







....and a little video action:



Happy Wednesday :)

  8. SO cute! That place is pretty neat - I am just wondering how you handled the smells? Some of those rooms can be pretty stanky!

  9. One of the greatest gifts as a parent (in my opinion anyway) is seeing things through your child's eyes. This is such a great example of that. That excitement is the video is heart melting. She is soooo cute!

    The picture with the stingrays is perfect - love it!

  27. Hey Katie (aka hot mama haha!) I loved the video!! Hearing Emeline amazed was hilarious!! Ryder (my 3 yr old) was next to me and saw the video and said "that's my favorite" referring to the aquarium. We took him to sea world last summer (yes I was 7 months preggers in Florida whew!) and he loved it!

    What a great gift idea!
