After a few full days of sun and water (and sunscreen and sand and missed naps) we took a morning to enjoy a nearby aquarium. A break from the waves was a good choice and the kids had a great time!
This is too much cuteness for me to handle! Buddies and cousins - love it. My handsome nephew, who is almost 3 months, missed out on the cousin pictures... but by time we're together next year he'll be in the thick of it, I'm sure.
Are you wondering if we ever made it into the aquarium? We did. Promise. We just enjoyed the chance to capture family-togetherness since the weather and backdrop were so nice.
It's no secret that Grady Lee is my nature-loving, animal-loving, adventure-loving kid. Chances to touch and do and be in the moment invigorate him. Touching stingrays and fish and crabs was no exception!
Annalyse wanted nothing to do with the animals, but thought it was a whole lot of fun to splash in the water. Micah was interested to look and retained a surprising amount of detail from what he learned, but all-in-all wasn't into touching and feeling. Grady Lee, well, his hands were on anything he was allowed to feel.
