aquarium

Some moms feel sad or lonely when their child goes to sleep. They miss them and they can't wait for their child to wake up. I am not one of them. I, on the other hand, will do a happy dance when Blee goes to bed. Or takes a nap. Hallelujah, he is asleep! Finally, I get to sit in front of my laptop and waste time and money! YAY! (I'm just kidding, although I do give a sigh of relief when he falls asleep.)

In order to make sure Blee sleeps well, I plan my day to get him tired. REALLY tired. Yesterday, we went to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and made sure we wore him out. Jimmy bought a deal through Google offers, so off we went... 

Unfortunately, the *totally new and much anticipated* penguin exhibit was not so great. I think they should have made it indoors...in my expert opinion.


...although this penguin tunnel thing was pretty cool.


It's getting more and more difficult to photograph Blee. I keep yelling random things like "mail truck!" and "yellow ball!" I'm sure I look pretty crazy and desperate.


Doesn't he look super cute in his red Crocs?


The thing about going to aquariums is that we get hungry for seafood. Jimmy and I stared at the ginormous crab exhibit and mumbled, "that looks sooo good". Good thing GLADSTONES was just a walk away.

Here's my crab, shrimp and lobster linguine. Delicious.



After dinner, we walked around Shoreline Village. Why is it that every beachy area has a hot sauce store?



Needless to say, the kid knocked out and slept for 11 hours. Success!
