The Aquarium!!!

As you know we took Amelia to her first aquarium visit for her 14 month birthday. Oh what fun it was! I really think she liked it better than the zoo lol. Jake's parents also tagged along this trip. Let me tell you about  our adventure :)

We started our morning out getting ready to leave at 1pm. We ate a regular breakfast and a big lunch, then the fight to keep Amelia up until we left began. 

Let's just say 15 min before we left, I lost.

I sat in the front seat for the first time in 14 months.
 Amelia has offically been turned forward facing and slept the whole way!

Getting ready to head on in.
Then the real fun began!

 Petting Stingrays!!!

look mom!

Grandpa it is so time to go swimming!

Grandpa naming the different fish to Amelia.

Butterfly food

She so wanted to grab one.

That butterfly decided that Jake was his new best friend lol

Love sea turtles  

This guy came right at us and scared the snot out of Amelia
