Yeah, this just about captured his mood of the day. We got separated from our group but we ended up having a nice day exploring and playing. 4 is tough y'all, but also kind of amazing. Rowan really wanted me to buy him something from the gift shop ( I mean really...in order to exit the aquarium you have to go through it...BAD design for parents of small children LOL ) He was focused on it most of the day to the point of tears because I would not buy said toy. In the end we took pictures of all the things he wanted to add to a list to get later. The crazy thing is he already has this toy! When we got home he crawled on my lap and said" we have a problem between our love...I don't want a problem" I said "neither do I buddy, but no matter what I will always love you" he said "I love you too and I am sorry" He really expresses his feelings quite well~
He found solace in the Penguins~
He wanted me to snap a pic but I told him I wasn't allowed to use a flash in this room so he said he would sit really still for the picture LOL!
Relaxing with the penguins...if you look close you can see it swimming towards Rowan~
Feeling what it feels like to be electrocuted by the electric fish~
Crossing the bridge~
Spotting the frogs~
They were so cute! Willow kept telling me how much she wanted to work there! I am sure one day it will happen~
This kid LOVES birds...all kids of birds... "He is looking at me!"~
Rowan and I had wandered through the new Asia exhibit but we didn't see the leopards and I told Willow how much I wished we could have seen them...
She put her hand on the glass and he came out of the cave right up to her~
It was amazing...this animal whispering kid~
Back to the penguins~
It was like herding cats...I gave up and just took this shot LOL
