Georgia Aquarium!!

We took our first trip to the Aquarium yesterday! Actually Mark and I went when it first opened but it was so crowded we didn't get to see much. Yesterday Lucy and I went with my mom and brother, and we had so much fun. It wasn't crowded at all, and we got to take our time and go through every exhibit.

She loved being able to stand right up against the glass and watch the fish

Trying to climb up to see the otter. The otters were so stinkin cute and fun to watch.

They have a tunnel you can crawl through and then pop your head up right beside the penguins. Uncle Jake took Lucy through it and she loved it. She wanted to do it over and over.

So, seriously this one penguin loved Lucy. He kept following her, and Lucy would sit right in front of the glass and he would swim down like he was tickling her. She kept giggling saying "penguin's gettin me!" I wish I had it on video, it was so cute to watch.

Touching the sting rays and baby sharks. I don't think they're actually "baby" sharks, but that's what we called them :)

Piranhas....they're freaky, I'm not gonna lie. They just stay still and stare at you.

Lucy and the Giant Grouper. I think the Whale Shark was swimming over us at this point because that's what she's pointing at, but I had to get a picture of her beside the Grouper. That thing is huge!

Thank you Dee Dee and Uncle Jake for a fabulous day. Mark so wanted to be there but he's saving all of his time off for when the baby comes, so I'm very grateful to my mom and brother for keeping track of, lifting, carrying, and entertaining Lucy all day, because I pretty much just waddled around and took pictures :)
