The Aquarium of the Pacific

Today, I took David, Michael, and A.J. to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. We bought a membership a couple months ago and are determined to make the most of it.

I took a picture of the kids in the parking garage, because I really like the fish they've carved into the floor. Not as picturesque as the aquarium, but fun nonetheless.

We visited our favorite aquarium exhibits today starting with "Shark Lagoon" which has sharks and rays you can touch. The boys got a kick out of it and stayed there a long time.

Next we visited the Lorikeet Forest. This exhibit features colorful Lorikeet birds that fly around and land on your shoulders (well, if you buy the Lorikeet nectar, which we did).
David was the bird's favorite. Michael was a bit hesitant at first, but really got into it.

Finally, we viewed the exhibits inside: jellyfish (I didn't take any pictures of these this time), pet the mini rays, 2 large fish tanks, and what we like to call the "wall of fish."

It was a great day, with a fun time had by all!
