Spontaneous Aquarium Trip

Yesterday morning we woke up and decided that a trip to the aquarium sounded fun! Jaxson hadn't been since he was a baby and Kendra had never been. Since we knew Brandon would be working on Valentine's Day we figured it was the perfect way to celebrate with the kids.

The aquarium is about an hours drive away so the kids were a bit fidgety. We met up with my brother, who lives in Seattle.

Kendra touched the starfish.... but Jax wouldn't. 
They have all these great touch tide pools! My favorite part.

Neither would look at the camera... too much to look at!
Pointing at all the fish
They both squeezed into the Octopus!
My little diver. He fell off the stool that was boosting him up not long after this. Oops. He was okay, though.
Getting Uncle Ryan
Jaxson was so excited to find Nemo!
If you look closely you can see the otter pup. She was so cute!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you get to spend some time with the ones you love!
