weekending

On Saturday, Sean and I took Caleb to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach to see the fishies, sharkies and one super awesome turtle. I have always loved aquarium because there is something about seeing the variety of underwater creatures and the wide variety of colors.
One of my favorite features at an aquarium is a touch and feel pool, which was filled with sharks and manna rays.








There was a lorikeet exhibit, which you walked through and the birds would come land on you. One woman had quite the flock on her and her bun.







We decided to get something on our head that wasn't quite as alive as the birds.


How was your weekend? What did you do?

I seriously want to just grab Caleb's perfect little cheeks. Even if my kids hate it, they will definitely be forced to go to the aquarium. I love a good touch tank too much ha. Fun weekend!

Love all your family pics. I love aquariums. I want to find some time to take the kids this summer. When I was younger they had lorikeets at our local zoo temporarily and they took your picture and you could get magnets made etc. Of course my mom got the magnet of me in my most awkward stage lol. I had big glasses and I wore my hair in a super tight unflattering ponytail everyday haha. Btw your little guy is the cutest!

That Aquarium is a LOT of fun! A lot of people always questioned why I'd take my baby or toddler to museums or Zoos or Aquariums but I personally think they enjoy it just as much as we do (in their own way of course). These photos look like so much fun!

weekends are the best - we love aquariums! I could skip the birds though, esp if they were nutty enough to land in my hair. no thanks!
