San Diego Birch Aquarium

Tuesday, August 28




Morning stories help Laurel and Ian wake up before we rush off to the Birch Aquarium.









Ian marvels at the jellyfish.
















Papa Chuck helps Laurel get a better view of the jellyfish.











Kudos to the aquarium for having hands on exploration for little ones. Papa Dave watches Ian, Laurel, and Paul play with the water currents. Notice Laurel's tongue sticking out - a family trait.





Grandma Ann and Grandma Edie pose for pictures with the kids.







Ian talks about the sharks with a new found friend.








AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!





Still hungry, the shark chomps on Uncle Jason for dessert.

IS that different from Scripps? It's been so long since I was down there for anything other than the zoo...

Domestic Chicky-
It's the same, I think it's called the Birch Aquarium at Scripp's Institute, or something along those lines.

My favorite part of the aquarium were the eels! When I get the pictures back from Papa Dave and Auntie Ann, I'll upload them for you to see.

Is that you in the middle of the shark's mouth? :)

I just LOVE Aquariums! We used to live in California, and we'd go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I remember loving the jellyfish! :)

Yup, I'm the middle gal in the shark.

Good family, good times, adorable kids!

Great pix! I love the giant shark.

I need to assemble my aquarium shots too. I'm very fond of jellies, so the pictures are a bit slanted that way.
