Fish from afar

We went to the Downtown Aquarium in Denver and Clark loved the fish....especially if he didn't have to get too close to them. He stood back about 5 feet from the tanks and watched them. When I would pick him up and take him closer his grip got tight and his whole body became rigid. As the fish got smaller in the tanks, he would get a little closer, but he never would touch the glass.

At one point there is glass in the floor where you can stand over the fish and watch them swim under you...big ones like sharks and manta rays. He freaked out when I put him on that glass and became so tense he couldn't even move to get off even though he wanted too very badly.

He did not want to touch the starfish, but he liked playing in the water.

We had a lot of fun crawling through the tubes and wandering through the halls. He really enjoyed the salt water tanks full of brightly colored fish including Nemo and Dory. His favorite was the blue and yellow Macaws. Although he would get tense and jump every time they would make noise.

What were you doing in Denver? Sometimes I miss our trips there, but would much rather live where we do:)

Mary Anne gave me a plane ticket for my birthday to come visit her. The only catch was that I had to buy a return one on my own if I wanted to leave! It was a fun weekend. Clark loved the plane! Probably the one and only time he will fly for free so I had to take advantage of it.
