Today was family day - and s'posed to be a balmy 50 degrees, so we sprung up and headed out the door early.
It was decided this morning that first up was the bookstore to get a couple of books that Trev really, really wanted - Chased By Sea Monsters, and Sea Monsters 3D . We went to get them the other day, but I didn't have my home educator's card, which would mean spending $10 more just on those two, and so we waited. I picked up Illusions.
Then we were off to breakfast! (each of us with our treasures in tow.)
After that we went to the Aquarium. Trev was thrilled that they had a triops (only one...?) and horseshoe crabs, which have been around long before the Triassic period began.
They had small tanks for touching - sea urchins, the horseshoe crabs, sea cucumbers, and sea stars.
We decided to go to Farm Country (since we were out that way)....where we chased chicks and got licked by a bull, frowned at by a worker, saw how milk is processedTrev played in and ate and slid and conquered snowand got pony rides (two, for Maddie.)Since it was a beautiful day by this time, we decided that we'd like to spend more of it outside, and headed back into town to the Aviary.
We got there just a few minutes in before they closed.
But then there was still enough light and fun to be had on the playground.....
Lots of adventuring!
