"okay, which one is Nemo?"!
"Oh, there he is!!!"
The other all-time-favourite is the shark tank.
One fish in the shark tank had some serious bite marks! Poor thing, almost ended up as lunch.
We also made our way through the penguins, frogs, kelp tank etc. etc. but keeping track of Niave is such a task that I wasn't always able to take pictures. She doesn't stay still for very long!
Finally we headed down to the activity centre where the kids could paint little hessian bags - for free!! (last time they got to paint a t-shirt for free!!) this ended up being the best part for me because it was the least crowded area and the girls loved the fabric painting. Tamsyn is quite an artist.
Niave however, painted 2 black spots on hers and then made a bee-line for a submarine ride-on toy that she kind of claimed as her own! She sat in there for about 15 - 20 minutes! Then another little boy came along who wanted a turn, she screamed blue murder when I took her out!!! As only Niave can scream! It's one thing when she does it at home but in a public place it's a whole different story. We got lots of stares and some laughs!! Anyway, she soon got over it and was smiling again.
(Another time she let out an ear-piercing holler was when they took her juice away from her at the entrance. No eating or drinking is allowed. They are VERY strict on that one let me tell you, they were not in the least put off by Niaves (very loud) protests!)
Next time we'll make sure not to have "Aquarium" on our list of December holiday outings! It will have to be April, June or September for us! (and we'll take hidden juice!!!) My advice if you are planning to visit the aquarium is - "go early"!
Well, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAMSYN! We hope you had a good day.
