The Salleys invited us to join them for a day at the Downtown Aquarium in Denver. We were really excited to spend the day with friends and visit the aquarium. It was quite the comedy of errors with our GPS failing to navigate us anywhere this day, but we eventually made it! It was our first time going and we had a great time. Some of the highlights were the flash flood simulator, the mermaid show and touching the sting rays. It reminded me of visiting aquariums in San Francisco and Monterey Bay when we lived in California and how quickly time is passing. I'm grateful for these kids and each of the stages we go through. Some of these stages are definitely more enjoyable than others, but I am grateful for the stages and what a fun one we are in right now.
We stopped with Salleys at McDonald's for lunch and an ice cream cone (after more navigation difficulties). Evidently, there was just too much playing to be done and not enough ice cream-licking time.
