Fish….Fish…. and more Fish….

aquarium1.JPG On Friday, August 3rd we went to Monterey Bay aquarium.  We left about 8:30 in the morning after dropping Duke to his hotel.  The road was a bit crowded, but overall the trip was smooth.  We ate lunch at Bubba Gump before going to the aquarium.

Tryphena enjoyed her time at the aquarium.  Days before we left we’ve told her that we’re going to “see big fish.”  Her face shone with excitement when she saw such a big aquarium.  She was familiar with many of the sea creatures there from reading her books, and now it’s time to see them alive!  She liked all of the exhibits- Jellyfish, Penguins, Sea Otters, Octopus, Bat rays, and many more- most of all she liked ‘Oteng’,  her way of saying “Otter” 🙂

We left the aquarium close to six for our hotel.  She crashed soon after we arrived at the hotel.  We came home on the following day.  It was an eventful trip!  Visit our photo album to see more pictures.

Circus came to town

Ringling Brothers circus came to Fresno this weekend.  It was Tryphena’s first circus acts.  She was so excited when we told her we’re going to see elephants.  She immediately acted like an elephant- an act that she learned in music class.  Here’re some pictures that we took.  I will post more pictures in “photo album” when time permits.
