Foto Friday #27

Wow, have I really put up 26 Foto Fridays? Doesn't seem like that many...maybe because not all of them were posted on an actual Friday.

Monday, Boo didn't have school. Rather than declare another pajama day so we could lounge around eating ice cream, we gathered some friends and headed to the aquarium. This is not a large facility. In fact, it is housed in what used to be a grocery store. Yes, it's small but they do have a shark tank and three different kinds of jellyfish so we love it.


Doesn't look posed at all, does it? I really ought to cut them some slack. I was making the kids look at the camera when all they could think about was the sting ray pool, where they'd get to dip their hands in water, splashing each other when they thought I wasn't looking and then jerking their hands out as soon as a sting ray came anywhere near them. Good times.


One of my favorite things about this place is a station where they have creatures you can touch. Sure, feeling the strange animals is fun but there's also a staffer there who answers questions from the kids and then gives unusual trivia about other sea creatures. I'd tell you about the pom pom crab but you probably wouldn't care.

Baby slept virtually the entire time, waking up only long enough to give me the stink eye because her lunch was late. What does it say about my mother abilities when my three-month-old gives me dirty looks? Instead of at the aquarium, I did a mini photo shoot with her in another exotic locale: my kitchen.


She can't quite laugh but it's rather entertaining to watch her try.

She is SO cute!! I love babies... don't have one of my own though. I'm only 22... so there's still time I guess. It looks like you had a good time at the aquarium. I was at the one in Baltimore but they wouldn't let us touch anything...

What a fun place to take small children. Our Aquarium in Boston is HUGE and much too big for little kids. But it's my favorite place to visit cause there's hundreds of penguins there!

Baby is so cute! She's really changed in the last few weeks.

We are off track now, maybe the aquarium would be a fun place to go.

Amber said...

How can she look so much bigger since the last time I saw her less than a month ago?

Emma said...
