Today we took the kids to the Downtown Aquarium. They had an amazing time. Especially Lion! He can be kind of a moody little guy, but he was uber-excited today. Every single display, he was running around pointing out all the Nemos and Dorys and Gils and Mr. Rays and even all the minor characters from Finding Nemo.
And he saw sharks! The only thing in the whole place that scared him was this big animatronic orangutan we saw in the rainforest section. Notice how tightly he is clutching Jonathan's shirt. And how he would not turn his head to smile because he did not want to let that orangutan out of his sight.
This next picture is my absolute favorite. Jonathan took it, of the Lion watching the river otters playing. If you look closely you can see Lion's ecstatic little face in the reflection of the glass:
After the aquarium, we met up with one of Jonathan's friends from high school and her husband and two kids. I get so nervous about meeting new people, but she was so freakin' nice. And she had a nose ring and she used the word "seriously" even more than I do! I like her. And Blue just loves her little boy, who is four. We were at a pizza restaurant and Blue and the little boy, Elijah, were bouncing all over the place and playing under the table and stuff. It was awesome.
