Getting Caught Up...

So, I haven't written a blog in a month and I am sorry to the few that look here regularly! I don't know why, but I have sort of been avoiding it! At any rate. I figured I should get caught up with what is going on with us!

Nate's actually made money with his toy business! Yay! It seems to be picking up. Fingers crossed we will be able to live off of it in the future! Cha-Ching!

I have just been taking care of kids and not doing much that is super exciting! Kids are growing fast. Cecily and Cordelia are learning and improving their skills by leaps and bounds!

Last week, we had company in the form of Cecily's beloved Weeza. My mom had a meeting in Long Beach and Eliza needed to be picked up from Los Angeles, so we decided to make a trip of it. We went to The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.

I really loved the setup and it was really family friendly and easy to maneuver around in. Plus, it was a Tuesday and not very busy so that was a big positive. We got there around noon and the girls were excited and raring to go. They both like fish and so I thought that they would both love it! Cordelia immediately ran for the fishes and did not stop for anything! Cecily was a bit more reticent and was especially freaked out by the Great Sea Bass. Scary looking creatures!

We took a break after the first floor out in the play area outside. Cecily loved the boat. Cordelia loved getting wet in the fountain area! She also touched the rays and some starfish. Cecily eventually touched an anemone inside, though, but she was too scared to at the beginning.

Here, birdie, birdie!

After lunch and looking at the "silly otters" Cecily got much more into it. Plus, I think the tropical fish were much more to her taste than the googly eyed cold water fish.

Both girls called these the "boing boings." You know in "Finding Nemo" when they bounce on the tops of the jellies?

They loved the divers! One even played peek-a-boo with Cordelia.

The kids participated in the animal parade. Basically, 5 kids with foam creatures, tambourines and music. Thrilling!

They got to see the sea lion up close and Cecily loved it and called the seal a tiger. You know you have to have lions and tigers, right?

That was our day. We had a brief venture to IKEA and then had to hunt for the Baja Fresh, then keep Cordelia entertained the ride home, but all was good and we had a great time!
