We were especially excited about bringing Little I to see the cold water exhibit. Little I has a Curious George book where Curious George visits an aquarium. Inside, Curious George sees beluga whales, sea lions, and penguins. We knew there were beluga whales and penguins in the Georgia Aquarium's cold water exhibit, so we talked them up. Little I loved walking through the exhibit and seeing one fish exhibit after another. The museum was not at all crowded so we gave him a little more freedom to explore the tanks without having to continually hold our hands. He really liked the "booger whales," and kept wanting to go back to them. We got to see the sea otters at feeding time, which was fun. We were at first a bit dismayed because the penguin exhibit was closed for remodeling. However, we discovered that there were "backstage tours" at the information desk that took people to see the penguins in their temporary homes. This was a real treat for Little I who laughed with glee when he saw the penguins jump, dive underwater, and shake water off.
Of course, no visit to the Georgia Aquarium is complete without a visit to the massive shark tank. Check out Little I dancing in front of the whale shark.
Mr. C also enjoyed the sights and seemed to be content to soak everything in.
Thanks to all our friends and family who were able to make it to the 8 a.m. service for Mr. C's baptism--especially GG, Papa, and Grandma who flew in from out of state and to Aunt Ellie who was not only on time, but early for the early service! For those who weren't able to make it, that is okay, we understand the risks of choosing an early service for baptism, we still covet your support and prayers in raising Mr. C to be a Psalm 1:1-3 man.
