Memorial Day at the Aquarium

We don't have a lot of time together as a family. Matt works during the day and I am home with my sweet boy and two of my friends children. Then, I turn around and go to work at night. Matt and I are two shis passing in the night and Steven is our little lighthouse. We were so excited for Memorial Day because it meant an ENTIRE day of just the three of us; no church meetings, no work, no interuptions. Just us! We fretted over where to go and finally decided the aquarium (one free admission helped a lot with that decision)! We needed to grab a couple of things from Wal-Mart so we packed up and left. It was when we pulled up into the parking lot that I remembered, "My phone was on the bumper of the truck. Please, tell me you grabbed it!" I was in histerics. I called and called hoping it ended up in the trunk, but no can do. I took Steven inside and we looked for shoes for him while Matt retraced our steps. About half an hour later, Matt met us in the checkout line with my phone. I was SO hopeful, but it turns out the battery had been lost and the case was in ruins. To make a long story short, I still use my phone, but the charge only lasts a couple of hours and there is no back. I hope someday it is in the stars to get a new one. :)

Matt is so sweet, as he knew I beat myself up about it enough. The only thing he asked is I forget about and try to have a good day. So, I did. We had a great day at the aquarium. Anytime with my boys is a great time though!
Underwater diver, Steven!

Be careful! Great white shark teeth ahead!
Be brave Steven, it is a Shark!
Matt is so intent on telling Steven about the Pacu fish. They have these in Brasil where Matt served his mission. Steven did such a great job listening to Matt tell him all about the fish and Brasil.
My two favorite people in the entire world! Steven was just loving up on his Daddy!
Happy, Happy Boy Steven!
Steven fell asleep toward the end of our time. He is so sweet, even sleeping in the stroller!
My favorite part is the tank full of jelly fish. I am just grateful there is a nice thick piece of glass between the fish and me. Look at my super cute hubby and me!!
Does your aquarium have three lovely mermaids? We watched an underwater show about them and then they came to greet the crowd. Steven was asleep for that part too! :)
