Went to the Aquarium Today

With only a few days left in vacation and all company gone we decided to try to go do something. Remi has been to the aquarium with Grammy Grammy a few times but Peyton had never been so we decided to head to Denver to see the fishies. I brought my little camera but I missed the shot of the day - the moment that Peyton went around a corner and saw a huge fish tank that surrounded her. She literally squeeled! She was hooked. And Remi was a great big brother and showed her all the highlights of the place. They both had a great time "petting" the horseshoe crabs. At the end you can buy fish to feed to the stingrays. Remi loved to do it! There were some huge sting rays there! I held Peyton's hand and a fish and tried to help her feed them but thoase big old things come up and it is kinda creepy! I kept dropping the finsh in the tank. Remi was soooo much more brave - there was one really huge one and Remi just stuck his hand in there and it engulfed his whole hand - yuck! The funny part was that they had a lady there taking pictures and I think she just saw "sucker for buying any and all pictures" tatooed on my head. So, yes, we came home with two pictures of us feeding the rays for the bargain basement price of $15!! I will try to scan them and figure out how to post them here.

This sounds like so much fun! I hope you get to so some wonderful pages with your $15 pictures! LOL!

That sounds like lots of fun! I am jealous that you have been able to take your kids to an aquarium -- we have none near us!

There's a button of a picture you can use to post the pictures when you are composing your entry.
