A Day at the Aquarium

By Lauren Jimeson |

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!

Baby Visits Aquarium

Where is the alligator?

The aquarium had an outdoor area that had only animals native to Florida. One of which was the Florida alligator. I don't think she's ever been so mesmerized by an animal before. She just stood there and stared at it through the glass.
