The Aquarium

This past Saturday we went to the Pacific of the Aquarium in Long Beach. I received a membership application in the mail that was too good of a deal to pass up.   Our visit that day was around $130-- which is awesome for nineteen people.

We all loved the exhibits that allow you to touch the marine life.

The sea lions were so entertaining! 

After the aquarium, we went to Bubba Gump's for a late lunch/early dinner.

We had a great day!


  1. Seeing the picture of Julia with Oliver made me wonder something. Now that your girls are older, do you get situations where people assume Oliver is their child? I've known large families who have this issue. If so, how do they/you respond?

  2. Erin, I am fifteen and seventeen years older than my two youngest sisters and they regularly get mistaken for being my daughters... I find it kind of amusing but it depends on who made the comment as to whether I correct them or not. Older ladies, I tell as sweetly as possible (without laughing!) that the girls are my sisters, but then other times (like the time a girl younger than me thought my Dad was my partner!) I just let it go so as to cause them minimum embarrassment. I call correcting people my "Abraham moments" (You know - she's my sister.. ;) )

  3. We went to an aquarium on the Queen Mary in 1977 - the first time we drove from Canada to California with our 2 girls aged 7 and 11. The perfect age for Disneyland! We arrived in a terrible rain storm and the day Elvis died!! I rained for 3 days - terrible flooding - and this is why we went to the aquarium - too wet for anything outdoors. It was like a blessing in disguise because we really loved it and if it hadn't been raining we never would have gone there. Funny how things happen, isn't it? I am glad you all had such a good time. We love Bubba Gump's too. My favourite movie too :-)
