This was Owen's first time to the aquarium. He was very willing to touch and explore - we all poked and prodded our way through the tide pool exhibits. Now we can say we've touched sharks. Briefly, I might add. The octopus was a big draw, as were the seals and, naturally, the gift shop. Actually, no one enjoys a good gift shop as much as our mother. She resisted our attempts to hurry her through so we could get to the yarn shop. Never rush a souvenir enthusiast!
