Aquarium visit

After Grandma and Grandpa left, Brooklyn was feeling a little bored with just Mommy and Daddy to entertain her, so we took her to the SC Aquarium for her very first visit. It was a fun thing to do inside as it was also a very cold day that day.

Standing at the entrance to the aquarium overlooking the ocean/bay.
Checking out the schooling fish exhibit - maybe getting pointers on swimming techniques for this summer???
Trying to swim with the big fish... including that shark, who seemed to be very interested in Brooklyn. It swam right up to her with its mouth open like it was trying to take a bite. She thought it was funny, as did many spectators around us. I did not see the humor in it.
There were lots of other animals there to see other than fish, including a family of owls, a bald eagle, ducks, cranes, turtles, snakes and penguins.
At the end of our "tour" we stopped by a play area for Brooklyn to run around some more. It was a toddler size campsite, I guess.

A Mom will just never appreciate the fact that her daughter looks like a tasty snack to a shark!

Looks like fun. We love going to the aquarium here, too.
