Newport Aquarium

It seems to me every year I look forward to summer being relaxing and laid back. And then somehow, it is always ridiculously busy. When we are doing school I always have a reason to say, 'No, we can't do that'...but in the summer it seems there is always something to do and no reason to say no to it! So our days have been super busy with little time for 'computer play'. Thus, my absence here.

Thanks to hubby's new job, we have gotten the opportunity to do several things that would normally be too pricey for our super-sized family including a day trip to the Newport Aquarium.

Here are all the kids minus Levi, since I was wearing him and "we" were taking the pictures.

I know this pic is a little blurry, but I just love the look on L2's face. This was taken inside the first tunnel we went through with fish and sharks swimming over top us and all around.

Cool starfish...and I know you're probably thinking, like me, that my oldest G9 needs a haircut. Don't worry, it's already been taken care of.

Always a hit with the little ones...Nemo fish!

And these are my absolute favorites. I think the jellyfish are just so pretty and take the best pictures.

One more for good measure.

This one didn't turn out so well, but it was fun for the kids to pretend like they were being attacked by the jellyfish.

And of course....a shark.

At the end we watched the "Penguin Sunset"...about 75 people gathered around the penguin tank at 4:30pm as a worker flipped the lightswitch. At least they were cute.
