Our friends invited us to spend the morning with them at the Aquarium (thanks, guys!)
Most of the Aquarium is inside or in tunnels where it's poorly lit (on purpose - then you get to see the bright colors and cool glow of a lot of the fish!) It is poor lighting for photos, so I didn't take many. I thought maybe we'd try for one of the four kiddos together, looking all happy and such...but it just didn't work. Some days are like that (most days!) - so here is a shot of the four of them, doing their "thing" - Sawyer and Forrest looking like "why do we have to stand here for this?" Sawyer making some sort of strange noise - really loud - and the littler ones, I think they had dropped an animal cookie through the cracks and were looking for it. Even if they don't look thrilled - they all had a really good time ;)
I accidentally paid the max amount of parking time, so when we were done visiting with the fish and sea animals - and our friends had to head out - I decided to take the kids to Ivar's - to EAT some fish ('n' chips). My mom brought me here when I was little, and her mom brought her when she was little. We've been to other "branches" of Ivars around the city, but this one is the classic - on the waterfront.
Feed the Seagulls, Please!
Quote for the day from Sawyer -
"I really don't want the seagulls to EAT me, Mommy.
(pause, a moment of thought)
Maybe they won't - because I'm TALLER than them!"
oh, and I don't want to forget the moment of the day, either -
Forrest loves to run his fingers through Aspen's hair. It is cute and sweet - and sometimes she doesn't mind, and sometimes she does - but it's pretty hilarious to see a 3 year old putting "the moves" on an 18 month old :) I always wonder if one day Aspen will have crushes on her brother's friends. As long as he keeps having such good friends, I'm okay with that ;)
