Will's Aquarium field trip

This Monday we were able to go to the Sandy Aquarium with William's preschool class. Greyson was overjoyed that he got to go with Will to "school at the aquarium." Since I was braving the aquarium by myself, I debated whether or not, I should take the stroller, backpack or snugli for Mo. Hmmm. I was worried there would be too many people for a stroller, Bri thought it might be inconvenient to have to bend over and manage the kids(and by kids, I mean Greyson) with the backpack on, so the snugli was the winner. BIG mistake! How could this possibly be a mistake you ask? She is not that big, fairly content with most things, and loves to chill with her Mom. The problem was that her sweet little feet dangled in just the right spot that she was kicking me inappropriately the ENTIRE time! Ouch! Okay, back to the Aquarium. Here is Will and his class and the most amazing teacher "Miss Heather"I just gotta say that it is so funny to watch him interact with the other kids and his teacher. He is too big, I cannot get over it.
I have never been to an aquarium before, and even though itwas small, it was very cool. There is a tank where you can pet the sting rays. NONE of the children wanteds to pet them and frankly ever since crocodile hunter I was too scared to touch them even knowing they had taken out the barb thing. They are stinking cool to watch swim. Grey loved to watch them.

Don't you love Will's face. This is about the time the shark swam by. It was a little strange watching a fish swim by that is biger than your child.
a big fish.
These little guys were funny to watch because they would swim with their eyes above water.

Grey hung out at this tank forever! Can you guess why?
Will is so silly with his friends, it was seriously hilarious watching him play with them.
The area that cracked me up was the "fish you can find in Utah" I am glad that I payed money to see a rainbow trout.
