Denver Aquarium Day trip

The first Wednesday of the month, Kiley doesn’t have school, so I wanted to take advantage of that and take a little day trip down to Downtown Denver and go to the aquarium. I have to say, I wasn’t too impressed. I liked the Atlanta aquarium much better!  But there were no crowds and even though the girls were scared at some of the exhibits (including Bryn screaming and running away from an animatronic  orangutan in the rainforest exhibit) , it was all worth it because of the mermaid show!  Kiley had a slight obsession with mermaids a couple of months ago when she was convinced she turned into a mermaid everytime she touched water, so this was so exciting for them!

It was VERY cold outside and even though we got there just 5 minutes before it opened, they wouldn't let us in.  I was so mad!

The sea otters were playing with us!
