The Living Planet Aquarium

On Monday I had zero plans, I was content to let Devin watch Team Umizoomi until lunch time. Do you have days like that? I hope I am not the only one.
Jessica sent a text seeing if we were up to going to The Living Planet Aquarium. They are closing up shop, and moving to Draper. Since it was the last day, they had a free admission. I figured it was better for Devin to actually do something instead of sitting in front of the TV. 
I took one look at the parking lot, and wasn't so sure it was a good idea to go. I did laps around that parking lot to find a parking spot. Good thing once we got inside, it really wasn't that busy...they must just have a really small parking lot.
Sabrina is almost walking, and definitely doesn't like being in the stroller anymore - so I opted to carry her. Although it is hard on my back, it was totally worth it to watch her be able to really explore. If Bina could have could get in to the tanks, she would have. She wanted to touch every tank, and stay to watch.
Devin was mostly excited to see the penguins, and boy did those penguins perform. Made him all sorts of happy. I think between those and the playful otters, it was a successful trip. 
Feeling thankful for my neighbors that have boys the same age, it has been fun to do little field trips together. Devin isn't the most social little dude, but he will eventually warm up if we give him enough time.

We absolutely love the aquarium. The parking lot is really tiny, it's almost always packed. I'm super excited for the new place to open!

We went after school and had to park down the street at Ream's. and then holy crowded inside. And the stupid otters were hiding. I think going in the morning was an excellent choice.
