New England Aquarium

We also spent one of the days at the NE Aquarium. It was really fun. The kids loved all the exhibits. There were tons. Unfortunately it is really hard to take pictures with my camera in there because they keep it so dark. We did get some good ones at the giant tank. Right up the middle of the building is a giant 3 or 4 story tank. You can walk around it on a path that is like a corkscrew so you can see all the different levels. It seems like certain sea creatures stayed at certain levels. Like the turtles were way up high and the sharks seemed to stay toward the middle. The favorites were the giant sea turtle(me and Avery) and the shark(Mitchell). After we exhausted the aquarium we had some snacks with the pigeons and then went to a IMAX show about dolphins and whales. Many of you may or may not know this about Mitch, but he does not like anything very loud. So the IMAX being a combination of really loud and really big and literally right in your face did not go over well with him. He promptly crawled into my lap and told me to "take me out of here now!". He was appeased with his hat pulled down over his face and Chris holding his ears, and this is how he fell asleep during the show. Poor baby.
