a whale of a tale

As part of our extended graduation celebration weekend, we visited the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. Our visit was much cooler than I anticipated it being. We took tons of pictures but of all of them this one is my favorite:Here are some more of our pictures. Sorry they're bad...no flash photography allowed!

We saw large fish:

weird fish:
fish that didn't look like fish at all:

eight-armed fish:
and we even found Nemo:

We enjoyed touching the sting rays and mini sharks in the touching pool too. This is a must see attraction in Atlanta. Why didn't I study marine biology...these fish are fascinating!

And how could I not include the video of one of the whales totally putting on a show for us:

It looks like you had a lot of fun. I am sad we didn't get to say good bye to you guys today. We are moving on Friday too! Good luck with everything. Katelyn and Tyler will REALLY miss you guys and of course Zibby too.

Love, love, love the Georgia Aquarium! When we went it was pretty packed so I'd really like to go back on maybe a week day morning when it isn't so busy. What day are you guys moving? What are the details of your move? On your post about you getting a job at UW, you said more details to come but more never came. I'm still waiting... When I told Livi you guys were moving she was really sad and said "but what if they don't remember us." And she is worried that Zibby is really going to miss her.

How fun is that?! I love that kind of stuff. Was it really popular when you were in grade school to want to become a marine biologist? It was when I was there. Everyone wanted to study dolphins. I guess that's what you get when you are in a land locked state.

I love the Beluga Whales. It looks like they have abs and are always smiling. Rumor has it that they will be putting a Dolphin element in the GA Aquarium. That will make it even better!!!!
