Come Along With Us - *Day 4*

2013 must be shakin' in it's boots from the threats posted 3 days ago.
  So far it's been on it's best behavior and I'm quite impressed.  Today was awesome. Ry and I were able to set down all deadlines, distractions and dumb stuff and take Scarlet out on the town.  As if the happy family day at the aquarium weren't enough, everything magical happened to us while we were there.  We got to see nearly every exhibit at feeding time. A diver played peek-a-boo with Scarlet. The giant octopus (my favorite) was so fascinated with the Beeble that it followed her around it's tank and they practically danced together.  The adorable sea otters were changing exhibits while theirs was getting cleaned so we got to see them all trot from one aquarium to another aaaaaaaaand one diver even talked to Scarlet over the intercom while he was underwater!  He said he discovered "an adorable bit of pink coral reef running around the aquarium".  As we were leaving we stopped to take a picture with a waterfall and Ryan noticed that a baby sea otter was sleeping right next to us, snuggled up in a ball and sucking on his tail.  Perfect cap on a super day.  Breath of fresh air #1.  
You've done well 2013, let's be buds.
I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story...
Some of you may remember Scarlet standing in this same place when she was 8 months old.  
Here's a wee flashback pic.


  1. Precious Memories to have! Scarlett's little Poncho is so cute too!

  2. Looks like a gorgeous day at the aquarium. Many happy returns of good days in 2013 to your little family.
