So I'm taking a few minutes to sit at the computer and relax. Well sorta, I'm doing this one-handed since the minute I sat down Esther woke up :0). Of course she would - that's a mom's life!!!
On Saturday we went to the aquarium. We are finishing up a unit on rivers and thought this would be a nice field trip - they have a nice freshwater section with river otters!
Even though we see many of these creatures in their natural habitat on the wild and rocky Pacific Coast at Grandma and Papa's house seeing them never grows old - even when they are indoors :0)
He looks a little unsure of sitting there next to a giant octopus - our Puget Sound has the largest octopus's' in the world. They have a reputation for being very smart and have escaped their home a few times here.
This picture of the river otter isn't so good but I couldn't resist trying to get a photo. This little guy was so cute. He was disturbed from his nap and when he settled down to sleep again he put his tail in his mouth and used it as a binkie - seriously!! It was so very sweet!! I wonder if his mom is wondering when he'll stop sucking his tail
