Our visit to the Aquarium!

Tue 8 Sep, 2009 at 2:42 pm 4 comments

We arrived to have a few days with Melissa and Mac and discovered that Virginia Beach has the same weather as Ontario did all summer – but it’s a “tropical depression” here – which means it’s warm with torrential downpours. Never fear – there’s an aquarium here! As soon as we told Luke there was an aquarium with fish he was thrilled and imitating fish until we left the house.

It was quite funny as it seemed like Luke thought we were only there for one exhibit (the hallway of fish – who all looked quite depressed). (Please excuse the dreadfully annoying adult voices in the background – particularly mine, at the end!)

But he was thrilled to discover the sting ray exhibit next door! It had an open top and everyone was allowed to stick their hands in to touch the skates:





He LOVED the exhibit!

Afterwards we went to go look at some sharks – Tim tried feeding Luke to a shark:


And then we went to look at the venomous snakes:


He was first afraid of the fake snake:


But then he realized it wasn’t going to get him:


All told we had a great morning – Luke had a WONDERFUL afternoon nap and we’re back on to a regular schedule with him.
