taking on the jellies
Yesterday I took the kids to The National Aquarium right here in downtown Baltimore. It was Adam's birthday and we always do something fun on birthdays. And thanks to generous grandparents we have a yearly membership to go, so off we went. The new exhibit was the jelly fish and we wanted to see them. So off we went. The kids stopped by the dolphin Fountain outside for a pose.
of course one of the biggest attractions- for my kids anyhow- is the rows of bubble tubes as you come in these are part of the filter system of the aquarium.Shawn sett there for over 20 minutes just in awe of them.
the jellie fish exhibit was breath taking, I had no idea how wonderful they where, I only knew of getting stung every year when we went to the shore home my grandmother had by the bay.- those little nettles where there too-. My kids where awestruck by them, it was a fun visit.Shawn loved that the tanks where floor to ceiling so he could see everything very easily.
