The girls and I are on vacation this week in Florida visiting my parents. I’ve tried to take advantage of our time here and have taken the girls to a fun children’s place almost every single day that we’ve been here. I am finally confident enough to take them both out on little adventures by myself. Now that Avery is a little bit older and can walk, she can participate in a lot more and really enjoys it.
One of our many adventures this week was to the Florida Aquarium. I visited this aquarium so much growing up, but it’s so different when you take your children. It’s so fun to see it through their eyes. I let them both just walk around and explore and they absolutely loved it. Avery enjoyed it so much more than I ever thought she would. She was completely into seeing all of the fish and the water. She pointed at nearly everything. I think I could have probably just watched her face the entire time rather than seeing the fish. She was so completely fascinated. The aquarium is definitely a place that Avery likes to be!
