Trip to the Aquarium

Today, we headed to the New England Aquarium for Mairead's first time. We went with our friends, Jaime, Joey, and Connor Estee. Mairead seemed to really like it, especially since one of the words she can actually say is 'fish,' and they were everywhere! She was also excited to see all of the kids there. She kept pointing and yelling, 'kids, kids!' We had a really great time and, a tip for all of you teachers, it is free to MTA members if you have your card.

Daddy had the camera for a little while so Mom got to be in some of the pictures today.

If you have never been to the aquarium, the center of it is this huge column shaped pool full of all kinds of fish. When you reach the top, you can look down into the water. Mairead and Connor were literally trying to climb in to the pool; you can see their little hands gripping the edge!

I love this picture because I think they look so much alike in this shot!

Jaime and Connor had a great time, too!

She was so curious about everything and was fascinated by these brightly colored tropical fish.

I liked the sea turtle, so I had to get in a shot of him. All in all, it was a great little trip. One great thing about being a parent is that you get to do all of the fun kid stuff all over again!

Connor loved his trip to the aquarium with Mairead. He still wishes he could have gone in the giant fish tank, but perhaps another time! LOL! It was fun to watch our babies so interested in "fish" and "kids"!
