Funday: Georgia Aquarium

A few weeks before I had Maggie, my nephew Zachary came to town to stay a week with my parents.  My mom and I thought it would be fun to take the kids down to the Georgia Aquarium. It's one of the activities on our Funday List too!
They're the perfect age to start doing trips like this.  Evie and I had fun peeking in the touch and feel animal area.

Then we were on to the beluga whales. I'll be honest, I think they're kind of nasty looking so I didn't take any pictures of them.
Evie was over stimulated from the crowds.  And she hated every second in the stroller.  I gave her a snack and pulled her up to the colorful tropical fish aquarium to calm her down a bit. It seemed to work. 

Seriously. The aquarium was so crowded it was miserable.  I was over stimulated.  We had a pretty miserable time, which is why I didn't take pictures for the middle part of the day.  The four of us ate lunch.  The kids ran around for a bit.  After we all calmed down a bit and the school tour groups went on their lunch break, we resurfaced and headed to the big tank. 
Evie and Zachary had a BLAST!  They stood at the wall for almost an hour. They'd point, clap and squeal at all the different types of fish, sharks, and rays.
 
 
As much as I love going to aquariums, it will be a long LONG time before I go back to the Georgia Aquarium. The crowds were just overwhelming and the school groups rambunctious and unbearable. 
 The kids had fun, and that is the most important part.  Nana treated them to stuffed penguins from the gift shop and ice cream on the way home.
