Fishy Business

I finally had a day off... and what better way to spend it than at our local aquarium! The boys love checking out the penguins, sharks and fish. There is plenty of room for them to run around, and all of the wild and crazy things are behind glass (well, except for my kids!)

Monkey really wanted to be the same size as the King penguin. He had to squish down a little bit to reach the 37 inches. I can't believe my little guy is already so tall!

Chunky decided he rather kiss all of the penguins. He is such a lovable boy!
Guilty party #1.
Guilty party #2. The boys had a blast playing in the shark cage and pretending that they were in jail. If only we had one of these at home...

All 3 of my boys checking out the sharks!

Chunky had a lot of fun climbing on the aisle dividers which were made to look like the ocean floor.

My boys almost got swallowed by a shark! 

Chunky really want ed to check out the replicas hanging from the ceiling. Once he got up there he wasn't so sure and quickly wanted back down.

The boys has a blast running around the aquarium, and it was a nice break from the hospital for me. We bought year passes, and I'm pretty sure my boys will be putting them to good use.


  1. Cute pics - looks like you had a great time! We love the aquarium!

  2. Looks like a great time! I just took my son to the aquarium last month!! He is only 4 months old, but had a blast looking at the fish!!

  3. I love how kids are so fascinated by sea life! My 3yo has been enthralled by underwater creatures since we first took her to the aquarium at 1mo! Can't wait until we are able to take the girls this spring!

  4. The aquarium is a great place to go to with kids. my boys ask all the time to go there. New follower would love a follow back =)

  5. I'm jealous. I live in Iowa and we don't have anything that cool to go to our zoo is even pretty lame. My daughter wants to be a marine biologist she would flip if we went to something like that. I stopping by from MBC- Looking for genuine followers. I followed you on GFC- KIMBERLEYMEIER.
