A couple of weeks ago, our family met Liz, Dave and Aubrie at the Aquarium in Sandy. It was a lot of fun. Jake told Carson we were going to see jelly fish. Carson perked up and asked, "should we bring nets, Dad?" (thanks spongebob). We saw jelly fish, star fish, sharks, and stingrays. Grace liked it all, as long as she was at a safe distance. :) Carson got to drive a boat and stuck his hand in the water to touch a stingray. He went in a cave to see some fish and came out saying "Dad, that's Finding Nemo!". Grace did a lot of pointing (her newest trick).

A little tidbit we picked up from the trip:
An early pioneer, Jim Bridger, is thought to be the first white man to reach the Great Salt Lake. When he reached the water and tasted that it was salty, he thought he was in the arm of the ocean. If only it were....

very cool! We don't have stingrays at our aquarium, Sandy surely has trumped Seattle in that regard. It sounds like it was a lot of fun.

thanks for the posts, we enjoy reading them and catching up.

(P.S. We actually DO live close to the ocean. You can come see it any time :))

My kids love that place. They think its the coolest thing in the world. I loved to touch the rays.
My kids wouldnt even go near them. Then when I left them to see the sharks with danni they all went there and felt them. Dern missed a photo op.
Anyways So yeah we need to see each other sometime soon.
