Paging Mr. Nemo!

7-5-10-10


Mr. Mustard and I took Paprika and Ginger to the Aquarium of the Pacific today in Long Beach. Mr. Mustard and I went to the Aquarium of the Pacific about 9 years ago...but this was the first time we have been since we had kids, believe it or not!

We've gone to some other great aquariums over the years: the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, and of course, the Ty Warner Center in Santa Barbara, our little aquarium here at the beach, and countless visits to Petco to check out their fish tanks. ;-)

We took Paprika to the Shedd when she was just about Ginger's age...almost three years ago to the day! Ahhh...memories!

We had not counted on the place being totally packed today! But it was! So, we got a year-long membership, and we'll be going back (again and again) when it's less crowded. Even a crowded day at the aquarium is still a great day.

Paprika and Ginger were both mesmerized by the exhibits, and really enjoyed the touch tanks, looking at the sharks, and of course, seeing the giant jellyfish! But try as we might, we still couldn't find Nemo! Not a single clownfish in the whole place. Can you believe it? I guess Nemo had the day off! At least there's hope for next time! ;-)
