A Visit to the Aquarium

Summer has been a whirlwind of activities. I haven't had even a chance to blog about even 1/2 of them! I need to catch up!! Back on August 6th, we took a trip to the NJ State Aquarium.


We love this place. It's full of lots of exibits and there are a lot of interactive things here as well.

The girls had a blast in the 'touch pools'. The water is FREEZING cold. They were able to touch starfish, shrimp and a few other critters. Ellie wanted, sooo badly, to pick up the starfish and give them a kiss. I was cracking up!!

Below we see Mackie here with her frozen hands in the touch pool.

I caught a rare moment of Sisterly Love here on film!
Ahh.. the giftshop. Of course, the girls wanted one of each thing they saw! This is just silliness!

Everyone needs an octopus to wear on their head, right??

Yeah.. there's this plexiglass TUNNEL that you walk through to get from one part of the aquarium to the next. You walk in and you're being transported under the sea. Imagine this thing coming at you as you scuba dive..........
NO THANK YOU!!

Overall it was a great day. A little crowded but a great day just the same!!!

Our kids (and myself) love aquariums. The one in New Orleans is pretty nice considering they had to replace pretty much everything after the hurricane.

Great photos!

You always do such fun things with the girls! I try to do the same types of things with my kids. We all especially love sea life, especially Meghen and I.

I love aquariums!! I think almost every one of them have those cool tunnels - well maybe not every one of them!! I LOVE SHARKS!! Hey, why don't I have anything about sharks on my blog?? Hmmmm...

Sounds like your summer is an ultimate summer, that is so cool, we should do more things like that too but well money is sometime the reason why....sigh!!!
