(I actually do blog..as in reading other blogs. Not actually making my own posts..bad!)
Last Saturday, it was hot. The temp was around 85.
I have a feeling that it's the last time that it's ever gonna be that warm this year, so we had to take advantage. It was sort of last minute.
Aris, Belle, & I went to Atlantis Marine World.
It was so fun! Belle was so surprised & shocked with what she saw. It's so fun seeing her reactions to the sea creatures.
This aquarium is not big. We were able to see everything.
So it's not overwhelming at all. It's very kid friendly.
Pointing to the little starfish.
Shark!! Those rows of teeth. I just kept staring at the rows of teeth.
You can also go in there with them. They put you in a wet suit, in a cage & you can see them up close & personal.
I told Aris, but he passed. Oh and there's a fee of course.
Other people were behind Belle taking pictures of the sharks.
When Belle turned around, she saw all the strangers with their cameras.
She stood still, smiled, & said, "CHEEESEEEEE"
And everyone laughed.
shy African penguins
How cute is that pirate!!?
We spent most of our time with the stingrays.
Belle enjoyed this part the most.
You could touch the stingrays. They are slimy, slippery, & smooth.
You stick your hand in, they pass by & give you a "high five"
Instead of passing by giving us a "high five", this guy stuck his head out close to our faces. Belle jerked her head back right away.
But she wanted to stay & keep playing anyway.
Belle was fond of this alligator. She kept staring & talking to him.
We saw a couple of snow monkeys.
Don't know what they were doing in an aquarium but they didn't look happy.
Another funny story:
We were looking at this picture.
My dad was telling Belle, "That's your Daddy Belle"
Me: Belle, what is that??
Belle: Bobby!! (my dad)
We all laughed out butts off!
Instead of Daddy, she said Bobby! haha That's what my dad gets!
So we just saw the sea lions below the water instead.
While everyone watched the show, we were just sitting here by ourselves watching them.
Sea horses! Aris said they were eating.
And that was it! We also had an ice cream break.
So that was fun. We need to bring Belle to a zoo soon.
Cause her reactions to animals even on TV is exciting.
Maybe on her birthday we can bring her to Bronx Zoo.
