A birthday trip to the Seattle Aquarium
I have not spent a whole lot of time doing specific "kid" things with Jasper because usually he seems to be enjoying himself regardless of what we are doing. However, on his birthday I wanted to do something special for him and yet memorable for us. I finally decided on going to the Seattle Aquarium. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and at the end of our visit we decided to splurge on the annual pass. I am uncertain how many times we will actually visit the aquarium over the next year, but their toddler programs are on my radar and I am excited to spend more time exploring the aquarium myself. There is no end to the sights, sounds and colors at the aquarium. Jasper favorite spot was the tide pools, in particular the wave machine which turned on every few minutes to mimic the tide. I love this age of discovery and I am trying my best to capture his imagination and keep each day interesting.
Where is your favorite place to take your toddler on a rainy day? Or any day for that matter?
A busy morning at the aquarium meant a skipped morning nap. Once we left the aquarium Jasper was in a daze and then promptly passed out. Children are hilarious when it comes to sleeping. One minute they are awake and the next the are zonked out.
And since it was his birthday we celebrated by taking an inordinate amount of photos- not much different from every other day!
