Hangin' With Tasha: The Aquarium of the Pacific!

BFF's at the Aquarium!
Kyra was so excited to introduce Natasha to the Aquarium of the Pacific!
Seals & Sea Lions!
Look Tasha! There are seals & sea lions in here!
See! There's one right there!
Cooling off at a touch pool
Getting a little wet, and loving it!
"Wa wa!"
Well, hello there Miss Cutie Patootie Natasha!
Keeping cool!
Checking out the sting rays
One of the gigantic crabs
"Looking Mommy, there's a fishy on my shirt!"
A girl on the go!
...Still going...
Kyra and a boat...or a "bo," as Kyra calls it
A last little bit of playing before heading home

Last Sunday, we had the pleasure of introducing the Larson family to the Aquarium of the Pacific. Amazingly for a summer morning, it wasn't crowded at all so Kyra and Natasha were able to get up close and see all the fishies and fun stuff. They had so much fun running around and playing together. They especially enjoyed a small touch pool area where they were tall enough to reach their hands in and cool off (it was a rather warm day). After a fun morning, we had a delicious lunch at the nearby Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant (it doesn't seem fair that we almost always eat seafood when we visit the Aquarium - maybe we should rethink that, but shrimp is just so good!). Thank you Larsons for a fantastic Aquarium trip, a yummy lunch, and some good Forrest Gump movie trivia!

Kyra has really been enjoying her new life in Orange County! This was just one of the many exciting days we've had recently. And we love knowing that there are many, many more great days to come!
