Trip to the Aquarium

Before my mom headed back home, we took a trip to the aquarium.  I kept joking that we could have just gone to the pet store because Sawyer was only interested in looking at the "little fishies".  He was actually a little scared of some of the bigger/weird types of fish.  And obviously Graham wasn't that aware.  He was just happy to be exploring somewhere new. 

But it was something different and mom and I enjoyed it and we got some cute pictures.

Jelly fish that Saw liked because he thought they were "bubbles".  Ha.

My mom took this picture and the best part is Saw's face in the reflection.  Love seeing things through the eyes of a child!

My favorite pic from the whole day.

Counting all the fishes.  Well, up until 14 because that is how high he can count right now.  And then he started naming all the colors.  He has those down.

Well, love this picture too.

Okay, funny story.  You could buy some fish food to feed to the fish.  Well, Saw wasn't too sure but eventually BeLLa coaxed him into helping her. 

Here they are dropping the food in, pointing out the fish and talking to them, etc.

And here they are jumping out of their skin when one of the fish jumped up out of the water and scared them.  They both screamed. We laughed and laughed at this picture.  So glad I caught it.  Saw was pretty much done after this.

It was fun way to spend a few hours on a hot day.  And we are so glad BeLLa was here to go with us!

Ok -- I'm crying again from laughing so hard at mine and Saw's fish scare. You failed to mention that these 'fish' we were feeding were a foot long and probably weighed 7 lbs. haha.

And in spite of all of our othere episodes, we had a really fun day and I'm glad we went. XoXo ;)
