This morning we woke up and had some breakfast and then I made a spur of the moment decision to take the kids and get outta the house and head to the Vancouver Aquarium.
I remember going with my parents and all five of us kids and we would walk around the Aquarium for HOURS looking at the fish and writing down the different ones that we saw and liked onto little pads of paper. Now that I think about it, it was a little bit nerdly, eh? Oh well, what we really need to bring are the older kids iPods. Jeremy was desperate to use a camera and I didn’t want him to use up all my battery. But when he did manage to snag it from me….he was in such a hurry that all his shots……BLURRY! I had 40 blurry fish photos on my camera. It was pretty fabulous!
When Geli, Xani and Jer were little, we had a membership and I remember taking the 3 kids and heading down one of the exhibit corridors and the nicest thing was that they dead ended so as long as we were behind them….they were safe as there was no where else to go.
Things have changed SO MUCH at the Aquarium in the few years since we’ve been there but it’s still a fabulous experience for the kiddos.
We got ourselves a membership, now to just find some “down time” when there aren’t a million people flooding through the halls.
The little boys LOVED looking at all the fish and I can’t wait to take them back to see more “fishys”.
