Our trip to the "Clarium"

That is Max's pronunciation of Aquarium :) We decided this weekend that since both Rich and I had Monday off that we would take the boys somewhere fun. Since Rich had his company party at the New England Aquarium, we figured this would be a good choice. And for the most part it was.

We planned to get there shortly after it opened because there was a discount before 10 and we figured it would be less crowded. Well, when wew got there it was POURING rain so me and the boys hopped out and ran into the tent they had outside for people to buy tickets. Well, this tent housed a line of people that took us 35 minutes to get through to buy tickets... and we were more than halfway through the tent to start! Kids were not too happy about this.

They did enjoy seeing a lot of the animals, the spiral 4 story tank is very cool. The windows allow you to look in and be surprised my animals sneaking in. The big Green eel scared the daylights out of Tim :) Here is a live web cam of the big tank that works during the day.

Anyway, when we left at 12,the line was out of the tent and across the little plaza that it is in... no way would I wait 1.5 hours in line for the Clarium! We took the boys to lunch and I have not ever seen them behave so well, in fact, I think the trick is to starve them after breakfast to get them to eat their lunches :) Just kidding!

FUN! Not the waiting part but actually going to the Aquarium. We took Austin & Connor last May when we were in Boston for appts. They were tired and cranky so it wasn't the best trip but still a good time.

We are back in Boston on Friday for an appt and are going to take Austin to the Museum of Science this time. It should be fun!
