The Aquarium

So I know you are getting tired of the SF pictures and I sorta am too so I thought I would post something different. Today I took Gracie to our local aquarium. I've only been once and Gracie is at the age now where she loves fish so we decided to go. I told Grace last night that we were going to see fish today and the first thing she said to me was, see fish today. What a memory she has! The aquarium is not very big but that's okay cause they have fish, fish, and more fish. Throw in a couple of sharks, sea lions, and birds and there ya go. Ever since I showed Gracie Nemo and she watched half of the movie, every orange fish she sees, she thinks it's him.

We walked around the aquarium, until we found the orange fish and Gracie said, Nemo, yay! Look, there's Nemo. Then she promptly decided to point out mommy fish. Mommy fish go play tennis (I am currently taking tennis lessons). She also pointed out the daddy fish, amma fish (grandma), and Gracie fish. The aquarium also had a huge and I mean freaking huge sting ray which was in with the sharks thank goodness. My favorite part was petting the starfish which Gracie refused to touch but I did con her into petting the sea anemone after I told her that it felt like jello, one of her favorite foods. Hey, whatever works.




Huge fish which I've forgotten the name of but they live off the CA coast and are bigger than Gracie



This is a baby shark in a sack. If you click on the picture to enlarge, you can see it better.


Gracie got soaked in the shark fountain but that's okay cause that's what kids do!
