So, to start: Lucas' first birthday was Thursday, June 23. Cole decided to take off work so we could do something fun for the day just as a family. We decided to take our very first trip to The Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy.
|A friendly tortoise that swam by while we were looking in his tank|
He couldn't really reach all the way into the water to pet them as they swam by, but one of the stingrays kind of "climbed" up the side of the pool (that's the only way I can describe it) and he was able to pet one. He may or may not have shrieked the first time. We all took a turn petting the stingrays--even Lucas got a hand on one (he was less than impressed). FYI, stingrays are a lot more slimy than they appear.
|Kyle was so excited. He kept saying, "This is AWESOME!"|
|This was Lucas' face pretty much the whole time. He did like hanging out in the sling, though.|
