aquarium of the pacific

robby had last friday off (3/21/08), so we decided to join some friends at the aquarium of the pacific. robby and aidan both love fish, so we figured it would be a perfect family outing. the day started off kinda rocky, but it was worth it. so much fun!! (sorry i haven't posted all week, my sister was in town and we were playing playing playing all week, now we're sick sick sick! thank you scott for passing that along to us!!)oh, and check out those shoes, this was the FIRST time we've ever put shoes on the kid. he's usually barefoot or just weaing socks. it took him a bit to get used to them. after i put them on he sat there for five minutes trying to get them off, then he refused to stand up and would only crawl. after about 20 minutes he was walking all over and it hasn't slowed him down a bit!!

they had an outside play area which also features a squirting thing which SOAKED aidan! (dontcha just love his little fauxhawk!) so he got spoiled and we bought him a new shirt so he wouldn't be freezing the rest of the day (unfortunately his camo shirt somehow fell out of our diaperbag and is now lost forver -- sad day! i loved him in that outfit and he had only worn it twice!!) oh well!

here he is giving the puffin some kisses, awww!

first time ever on daddy's shoulders while watching the sea otters playing! he loved it!!

he also got spoiled with a new stuffed shark, which he absoluely adores!!

back at home, chillin' with daddy after having a fun day at the aquarium!
