New England Aquarium

Last week we rode the T into Boston trying to make the Whale Watch Tour. When we got there the tour was closed for that day because of unsafe seas. Thankfully, Matt had gotten the Aquarium pass from the library. So we made it an Aquarium day. It was fun! We saw Sea Lions getting their teeth brushed. We saw a Seal Show with a seal named Isaac- who was acting up and not obeying. Let's just say we joked about the Seal and our friend Isaac. It was funny. :)

The kids loved the 3 level middle huge tank. They saw penguins, huge sea turtles, sharks, manta rays, and crazy fish.

Emma loved getting to hold a starfish. Garrett was finally convinced to touch a starfish.

After we'd spent a couple of hours looking at all the displays we headed over to the IMAX to see the Sharks 3D movie. it was pretty cool.

Next we were all hungry (despite the popcorn and pretzel we'd had at the movie) so we went to Quincy Market. There is every food you can think up so we all got what we wanted and finally found a bench to sit on to eat. Next, we did a quick tour of Fanueil Hall then a Carousal ride before heading back to the house.
