Virginia Aquarium Visit

Working on our summer fun list already!  Around 8:30 AM yesterday, we {me and the two little ones} went off to the Virginia Aquarium.  After feeding Helen, we got started exploring the aquarium around 9:15.  I’m so thankful we went early since a huge school field trip arrived a little after 10:00.  This is Holden’s third trip to the aquarium, but I think he seems to get more out of it each year.  It’s almost like a new visit each time.

We said “hi” to the scuba divers…

Check out this crocodile!  His teeth were quite white.  I joked with Holden that he must really brush them!

My favorite part is the jellies.

Doing a little fishing!  This boy is so excited to be going fishing with his daddy and Poppy over the 4th of July holiday.  🙂

Beautiful view of Owl Creek!  The Mr. and I zip lined across it twice on Sunday when we were there at the Adventure Park.

I love checking out the otters.  They are such graceful swimmers.  We enjoyed our snacks under the climbers at the Adventure Park.  Holden was fascinated and said that he can’t wait to do it when he’s a “big boy.”

We were home before noon due to Miss Helen’s feeding schedule, but I have to admit I was pretty tired from our morning adventure.  We took it easy in the afternoon with naps, yoga for me, and soccer for Holden and me later on.

This was our big outing for the week.  Today’s a cleaning day, and tomorrow is a doctor’s visit for Helen.  Not quite as exciting!  I’m pretty sure Holden will be A-OK with it.  He’s such a homebody!  He loves to hang out in his undies in the morning.  🙂  Have a great day!
