Our family had plans to go hiking today, but the weather had another idea. We still could have done the hike, but we chose to do an indoor activity instead. (Checking the weather is something we need to start!)
We decided on our local aquarium, mainly because my older son kept suggesting it. He loves sharks, so he’s always excited to see one.

One of the books we already had from a previous trip to the aquarium. The second book, All the Water in the World, I bought as a tablet version so the kids can look at it on their tablet. We choose these books because they are fun and educational for the kids. They get to learn about ocean creatures and the water cycle. (more…)
