Aquarium Crazy

“I’m going for a swim!”

“Natalie, stop it, you are not!”




We went to the Texas State Aquarium while we were at the beach. Natalie loves it there. Probably too much. She’s always been a daredevil so I imagine if adults weren’t around that she WOULD have gone for a swim.

She grabbed at everything in the area where you could reach in and touch:



“I love this pokey thing!” she cooed.



“And this crab thing!”

Then she showed me a snake:



And ran around the dolphin area.



Then we went down below the dolphin pool and Natalie said she wanted a dolphin as a pet and that there was a dolphin in the Barbie movie she likes.



Basically, she wears me out when I take her out in public. It’s why you’ll sometimes pass frenzied looking mothers with wild hair.

Our kids might be older, but they are still very, very wild indeed.

  3. The best thing about this post is that while your daughter might be loving on creepy-crawly creatures, she's running around in an adorable tutu!!!!

  7. Annabelle loves going to the aquarium in Niagara Falls too. She once threw her show into the sea lion tank when I was distracted. I was so embarressed. So at least Natalie didn't actually do anything except be a little wild:)

  9. I love it! My kiddo adores the aquarium too, and dashes around to touch and see everything. She'd live in an ocean if she could, and there a Barbie movie where she turns into a mermaid and talks to dolphins. This is my daughter's ultimate fantasy!

  10. Your girl sounds just like mine...wild, and fearless. It's scary!

  11. If she weren't who she is, then she'd be boring. :)

  12. I have the same daughter :-) The incessant talking and questions. And they are crazy inane questions. Like who is your favorite cat? If you had a boy what would name him? (And then I tell her a name - but apparently that name is illegal and I have to pick a different one) I just "vant to be alone!" (sometimes!)

  13. She is adorable...and also sounds a bit exhausting. I love that she's in that girly cute skirt and marveling at a snake.

    Hopefully all that energy and inquisitiveness will channel into something phenomenal. No doubt. :)

  14. I bought a membership to that aquarium because my daughter loves it so much. She does the same as Natalie. She even tried to jump in the bay where there was no fence because she wanted to go over to the Lex to see the planes.

  15. Sometimes their "youthful enthusiasm" is exhausting!
