New England Aquarium November 2011

Carlie and Ava
Vetrans Day was probably not the best day to head to a major city and tourist location, but it sure was a lot of fun!  Besides the half hour wait in line outside in the blustery November weather, the whole trip was fantastic!  I had never been to the aquarium and have always wanted to go.  Thanks for my BFF Jen and her adventurous spirit, we headed to Boston and I finally got to see the aquarium!  I'm not sure who was more excited about it, me or Carlie but we watched YouTube videos about the animals and fish at the aquarium before we went and learned a lot about what we were about to see!  One of the things we really wanted to see was the super smart octopus!  We found a video about this guy and it told a story about how he managed to find a way out of his tank at one point, climb down the side, across the floor and break into a tank of flounder-and then proceeded to EAT every one of them up!  He got caught red handed by some of the staff early the next morning and from then on, he is in lock down!   We saw penguins and sharks and giant sea turtles and some of the most beautiful fish and coral and jellyfish, we got to touch a sting ray and sharks in the new touch tank exhibit and we all fell in love with the seals!...So much happened,I couldn't even begin to remember it all but it was awesome!  Even if every other family from New Hampshire to Cape Cod decided to show up that same day....It was still a LOT of fun!

This is the face I got when I asked her if she was having fun...
