Hippos!!!, originally uploaded by ducksRfriends.

A nice relaxed new years eve this year… followed by a weekend full of small adventures. The best one was to the aquarium. The hippos were amazing. So big and so graceful. I know they can be super aggressive, but they just look so calm. I was mesmerized by them. They were so close! A lot of the exhibits at the aquarium are really well designed- good views of creatures and lots of hands-on for the kidlets. My favorite was definitely the hippos. The Jules Verne room was pretty cool, too. Full of jellyfish. A fun adventure to start out the new year.
