Last weekend, I turned 32. My husband asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday, and said I could choose anything. And as much as a long massage and a vacation to Mexico sounded fabulous, I knew what I really wanted to do was just have a simple, wonderful day with my family. I thought it would be fun to do something new with Cullen, so a trip to the Aquarium was in order!
One of my favorite things about being a mom is watching him explore and enjoy new things. It’s such a joy to watch his little brain process information, see him make connections, and literally watch him get smarter each day. We try to take advantage of all the learning opportunities here in Seattle, and we are frequent visitors of the Children’s Museum and the Seattle Zoo. But we hadn’t checked out the Aquarium yet, and a cloudy, rainy day felt like the perfect occasion.
Here are a few pictures of our trip!
