One Hand Two Fingers

We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific. Marilyn and Grandma Brown took Hannah and Gavin to the Aquarium last August, so Hannah knew what fun she was going to have.

Gavin, on the other hand, was napping when we arrived.

We went to the Aquarium with Catrina, Carson ("the Carc"), Shawna, and Baby Ellie. Since they were coming from Burbank we had to wait a little bit. Hannah and Gavin had fun chasing the birds.

I put them both in the stroller and chased the birds. Gavin would point to a bird and I would run and chase it. I didn't feel so bad harassing the birds because they got us back when we were eating our lunch. Poor Hannah dropped her cookie and there were about 100 birds fighting over it. She was devastated. It was a cookie massacre.
The Aquarium's rule when touch the animals is "One Hand Two Fingers." I have to give Hannah a ton of credit on that one. I tried to touch a stringray with only one finger and she was quick to correct my deviance. See Hannah using two fingers to touch a big black stingray!

Hannah loved to touch the starfish and the sea enenomies. The sea enenome was sticky. The Aquarium lady taught Hannah the sea enenome was stinging her but her skin is too thick to penetrate so it felt sticky instead.

Gavin wasn't too excited to touch the squishy, sticky, and slippery sea creatures. Sometimes he would reach down and touch a shark or the sticky sea enenome but most of the time he would just look at everything.

We had a really fun time at the Aquarium. I did find the best deal to go, if you borrow a book from our local library and bring in your receipt, you get 50% off of the General Admission. Not too bad!
