....... a building with a giant meerkat on top ?
The AQUARIUM of course !!!
We try to visit The Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, Ct at least once a year - usually in the summer. It's the perfect size for kids and has food and loads of kid friendly activities and resting spots along the way. It's one of our favorite places to go as a family.
This might be our favorite spot. It's a touch tank full of manta rays. In case you are wondering they are very squishy.......sort of like a jelly fish......and impossible for me to photograph...sort of like small boys.
It seemed there was quite alot of blue this year.....which - later - I noticed at Homegoods as well - coincidence?...Anyone know Pantones colors of the year ?
There are all sorts of boat models like this. Which are pretty awesome. My oldest commented that he could use something like this in his room. I'll get right on that.
They also had models like this. One kid looks like he is preparing for a crash. The other one looks like a giant pie is about to fall on him. That's acting !
Our second favorite spot might be the smaller touch tank - full of adventure !
Although they all thought our Fourth of July horseshoe crab encounter was way more exciting !
If I ever won Lotto - I would so have one of these in my living room ! We could have stared at these tanks forever.
I know we were supposed to be looking at the meerkats....... but is it wrong I was excited all the kids were in ONE place for a few minutes...see that bubble back there ? ( apparently meerkats are very big camera hogs and enjoy posing. If you took your camera out.....a meerkat would appear. )
Anyone remember where we parked the car ???
What was your favorite place to visit when you were little ?
Happy Monday !
