A day at the aquarium.

 Nana had the privilege of being off work for President's Day so we decided to head to the aquarium (and take advantage of the kids getting in free).  A lot of other people had the same idea--I had never been there when it was soo busy!  Nonetheless, we had a great time and were able to check out lots of underwater creatures.  The water tunnels are always the coolest thing--being able to stand there and watch sharks, turtles, rays and fish all around you and above you!

A spider crab.  I would not like to run into one of these underwater.  They walk just like spiders.  Yuck!

Nathan and Jacob in awe of jellyfish.

A moon jelly.

Watching the sharks and the rays.

This big sea turtle was so playful--he was a lot of fun to watch.  He literally was chasing this big giant eel--apparently just for sport.

Jacob, Patrick and me in front of a python snake.  Can't really see him! Nathan took this picture for us.

All in all, it was a great way to spend a rainy day.  And, especially, to get to spend some time with Nana.  We were all tuckered out after almost 3 hours in the aquarium!  And we learned a lot as well!
