Sea Life Aquarium

On Friday, August 12 we took Avery to the Aquarium at Legoland for all our first times! All 3 of us are very interested in marine life and we really enjoyed all the sea life at the aquarium. I was particularly interested in the sharks and Avery liked to touch the aquarium windows as the fish swam right to her face! The pictures are a bit blurry from the lack of flash, but we got some great pictures.

Ready for the aquarium!

We had a hard time tearing her away from the very first exhibit!

Oh! Fish!

I'm not touching it! Nah nah nah nah nah ;)

Wild Animal Park

On Sunday, July 31, we took Avery to the Wild Animal Park for the first time (my first visit to the park too!) It was insanely hot and the park is big and sprawling so we were sweaty and sticky by the end of the day. Because the park was packed, the tram line was too long for us to ride so we walked everywhere. We saw sleeping tigers, grazing gazelles and giraffes, a huge male lion laying right against the viewing glass, lots of birds and Avery got to pet some friendly goats. It was a fun trip and I learned a few things for next time (bring LOTS of water and snacks, they don't check your bags; pack an extra outfit, towel and swim diaper for Avery because they have a little water park area; wear a hat and bring LOTS of sunscreen!)
Enjoy the pictures!

We are here! (outside temp 92 degrees, ugh)

ready to see some animals!

First stop: Fisher Price exhibit

Cooling off at the splash pad

Yup, we were that "white trash" family with a naked baby at an amusement park!
HAHA! It was SO hot and poor baby needed to cool off, I didn't even care!

Avery is fearless! Went right up to them
