Fish, Sharks, and X-Rays

As usual, Spring Break went by a whole lot faster than I wish it had. However, it was nice to have some time at home with my boys, and the weather was absolutely beautiful! We didn't really have any big plans, but at the end of the week when we found out Brent was going to be off work on Saturday, we decided to use our two free Georgia Aquarium tickets from Brent's work and take our little guy to see all the sea creatures. Since we only had to buy one ticket, it wasn't too expensive, and we certainly had a lot of fun!

Because I have been on four different fieldtrips with students to the aquarium, as well as a teacher fieldtrip and one other family trip, for once I knew the ins and outs of a place better than Brent! I knew the best spots to see what we wanted to see, and I knew which exhibits were okay to spend less time on. It's a good thing, too, because most Atlanta area schools were beginning their Spring Break as ours was ending, so there were tons of people there, and we were able to avoid at least some of them by knowing where and when to go.

Chandler loved looking at the sea horses, sharks, and "x-rays" (sting rays) best. It was adorable to hear him talk about all the "x-rays" as we sat in front of the large window aquarium. He enjoyed the 4D show because he loved wearing the glasses, and he enjoyed watching the dolphins at the Dolphin Tales show.

I enjoyed watching the expressions and hearing the questions and exclamations from Chandler. It was a joy to be able to spend a day with my loves and make some memories together!

My loves!

  1. What a fun trip. I love it that he calls them X-Rays. Too sweet!

  2. Fun! I bet this was a much more relaxing trip for you! :) I can't wait until the boys get old enough to enjoy it.
