Aquarium of the Pacific

On Jason's birthday, we decided to go to the Aquarium of the Pacific since none of us had gone before. We ended up taking Jason's mom and Lily and Brooke with us because (long story short) Sara decided to become a surrogate and she was getting implanted with the eggs that day. So we all went out together. It was quite an undertaking but I think we all had fun.

Ethan and Lily were having a blast in the backseat. They were just giggling the whole time.
I like this picture....I was trying to take a picture of Brooke and Lily just leaned right in.
The road was bumpy, so the kids all had their fingers in their ears and were going,"ahhhhhhhhh" and feeling the vibrations. It was hilarious and noisy.
First group picture.
The big whale and our group walking just below.
Ethan and Jason
This crab was cool. It was just motoring around that tank. Ethan loved it. I love Lily and Ethan's hands down below it.
Cool fish.
Blue Dart Frog
That's one of the tanks behind them. It looks like a mural.

A Sea Dragon. Very cool
Grandma and Brooke
Think think think
So colorful
Brooke loved them...can you tell?

Jellyfish...I like the color
They were looking at sea lions

This guy was just bobbing there with his eyes closed...just chillin'. Total Californian.

Trying to touch rays and sharks
Brookie too!

Those little red sandaled feet are Brooke's

Feeding the Lorikeet bird some nectar....these guys were so hard to get near you...I think they were full because there were sooo many people there.
Helping Lily
Different variety

So the kids crashed on the way home. They were soooo tired. But they had a lot of fun. Jason's mom even let us go see a movie that night...Hellboy II. It was good. I recommend it if you're into those kinds of fantasy movies.
