For Earth Day yesterday, we visited to the Georgia Aquarium (the world's largest, by the way) for the first time. They kids received annual passes for Christmas, and Michael and I just got around to buying passes for us (they were finally on sale!) It is kind of embarrassing to think that we live only a few miles from the aquarium and it has been open for almost a year and a half and we are just now going. Better late than never, right?
Well, we all loved it! I am thinking that I might just go a sit by myself a few times a week and stare at the jelly fish (I guess I could call them sea nettles now that I know their proper name.) I was so mesmerized by them! I made the kids go back several times to look at them. They were very calming. Which can be quite nice, ya know?
I am looking forward to taking the kids pretty often now that we all have passes. There is so much to see and do. And while we are talking about nature, two days ago we discovered that one of our neighborhood robins has a nest of baby birds in our front yard. We watched her go back and forth collected food for them. It was so amazing to watch their sweet little heads pop up when she would return to the nest...
She would feed them so fast, it was almost impossible to capture. And today I discovered that we have a nest of baby birds in one of the eaves of our house. Apparently the birds are taking over. You all know I love birds...as long as we don't turn into a Hitchcock film.
