We got out of the heat for a fun day at the local Aquarium. The kids must have asked me 20 times if we could visit the Aquarium, so finally we did! We've been there a few times, but once a year at this place is about all I can take.
WARNING... I'M ABOUT TO VENT.............
The kids loved it, but WHO'S IDEA WAS IT TO PUT A NICK KNACK JUNK STORE WITH STUFFED FISH AND PENGUINS DIRECTLY IN THE WAY OF THE EXIT DOOR? AFTER 3+ HOURS OF WANDERING AROUND IN THE DIMLY LIT, STINKY AQUARIUM, WHEN I'VE HAD ENOUGH, THE LAST THING I WANT TO DO IS HAVE 5 CHILDREN ASKING AND BEGGING AND HANGING ON ME TO SPEND 100 DOLLARS ON TOYS THEY WILL MOST SURELY FORGET ABOUT THE SECOND WE GET HOME, AND WILL FIND THROWN OUT WITHIN A FEW WEEKS MAX. AWESOME MARKETING PLAN(sarcasm)- DRIVE PEOPLE CRAZY SO THEY NEVER WANT TO BRING THEIR KIDS THERE AGAIN.....EVER. OR, AT LEAST FOR ANOTHER FULL YEAR, WHEN THE MEMORY IS DULLED ENOUGH TO FORGET ABOUT THE TORTURE YOU WENT THROUGH LAST TIME.
FUN, FUN, FUN!
WHO'S UP FOR A DAY AT THE AQUARIUM?
SORRY, I'M OUT, UNTIL NEXT YEAR. :)
