Saturday trip to the Care-ium

We went back to the Adventure Aquarium (or Care-ium as Wesley pronounces it) on Saturday morning this past weekend. We got there early enough that it didn't start getting too crowded until we'd had a chance to look at most exhibits.

Daddy, Claire, and Wesley in front of the hippo tank.

"Is it going to eat me?" Wesley was convinced that the fake shark that he's crawling in was going to eat or bite him. It took some coaxing to get him to actually crawl inside the mouth for a picture.

In the shark tunnel, making scared faces at my request.

"Ahhh! A shark!"

Claire, in the shark tunnel, unimpressed by the sharks.

After several visits, Wesley has overcome his fear of touching the animals and was completely ready and willing to touch the stingrays with Daddy on this trip.

His favorite is this huge one that liked to hang around our side of the tank. And yes, his sleeve did slide down and get soaked. Oops.

The big guy (or gal) must have been hungry and was pushing up out of the water in search of some fish.

Daddy trying to get Wesley to touch the anemones. Wesley didn't want to for some reason, but would touch everything else in this tank, including some starfish and a sea cucumber.

In the diving bell lookout. One of his favorite places in the aquarium.

Not sure who the boy in front is, but Wesley and Claire in the bell together.

Mommy and Claire.

Looks like the Care-ium pass was a great buy. It is fun to watch Wesley become more comfortable with the exhibits.
