Steppin’ Out {Deja Vu} at the Aquarium

Yeah, so we went to the aquarium again. I know you’re super excited to see more fish pictures. I don’t even know why I TAKE them anymore, since my hard drive is full of out-of-focus, blue-tinted photos of the back of my kids’ heads. Every time I get home all excited because I KNOW that THIS time I got a killer shot of a hermit crab I discover that it’s just an orange blur and I am not actually talented enough to take photos in such low light.

BUT! This is one of those times where I can genuinely say I’m posting on my “oh I started it as a journal of my pregnancy to keep my family updated blah blah blah” blog and mean it.* My mom buys us our membership each year and when I don’t post enough photos of us using it she starts to ask if we’re still using it.

YES, MOM. Enjoy the pictures. At least I put them in collages so the rest of you don’t have to scroll through all 30+.

I’ve been to this aquarium several dozen times and I have NEVER seen the octopus do anything put hide in the corner. This time he was trying to eat my kid through the glass. Cool but kind of (totally, completely) freaky.

¬†Yep, I’m petting a shark in that bottom picture. Badass, right?

And then my 2-year-old touched a shark. I feel much less badass.

Someone was having such a good time he had to be dragged out and then bribed with Five Guys for lunch. OK, maybe the Five Guys wasn’t absolutely necessary, but it was delicious.

Also, we all wore clothes. Shocking, I know.

On Me:
Dress – ModCloth
Leggings – Old Navy
Sweater – H&M (From college! It’s missing 75% of its buttons so I used pin)
Boots – Old Navy
Evan Bracelet – Gift from my Aunt Susan
Silver cuff & earrings – Spiffing Jewelry

On Caroline:
Jacket – Hand-me-down, Toughskins
Top – Hand-me-down, Carters
Leggings – Old Navy
Shoes – Hand-me-down, Converse

OK, next weekend maybe we’ll go someplace else. Or not. Probably not.


*True fact: I actually started the blog to entertain my online friends with gross pregnancy symptoms. My family was never supposed to find it.

    As a Connecticut native myself, I’m totally loving the aquarium pics! And yes, it’s still badass if you and your 2yo. touched a shark.

  2. If we lived close to an aquarium and had a membership, we’d go all the time, too. The kids like it and it’s free. Win-win.

    I love your dress!!! Dont feel bad, my kiddos love the aquarium too…and we go a lot…a lot!

  4. Oh those tiny baby Converse’s … I die of cute! I’m a sucker for baby shoes – seriously my daughter has a better, bigger collection than I do. :)

    I love when you post pics of the aquarium because it reminds me of how much fun the boys & I had there- and how much I need to go back when you are actually in town!

  7. LOVE that Mod Cloth dress! And Caroline’s pink sneakers! Noah got a pair of black Chucks as a gift, but his feet are too fat for them!
