My kids and I headed to the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific today. It was crowded--real crowded. We had to waive through the tight, dark corridors lined with big tanks of every kind of sea life.
I was a little stressed being there with the kids by myself and struggling to keep my eyes on them in the dim light and among all the people pressing their way to the glass. But, there were little moments of wonder that made it all well worth it. These Jelly Fish, Pacific Sea Nettles were our favorite part. We stayed in this part of the aquarium for a long time, just watching them glade and dance around. So beautiful.
Ben, my five-year-old, who just minutes before declared he would only be a fish if he could be a shark, now included jelly fish as an option for fishness. "It's good to have choices," I agreed with him.
