I know, I know, how hard is it to snap a picture? But yesterday was busy! We woke up early - pretty much as early as a normal workday - and went to the aquarium! It was really fun! We took our time and went slow, and not just because I move slower than ever, but Hubby likes to read all the interesting facts about the fishes. We saw pretty fish, creepy fish, Mighty Mike the famous alligator, otters, frogs, penguins, and sharks. Oh my gosh! The sharks were scary! There were people in wetsuits cleaning in the shark tank, and they were in pairs - one person cleaning and another person with a PVC pipe for protection. Every once in a while a smaller shark would get really close and the guy with the pipe would grab the girl's leg to alert her to stop moving. After this happened a few times, one of the really big sharks with lots of teeth hovered over them for a long time! I thought he might attack the pipe! The girl was just laying there with her head down, not moving, while the guy blocked her with the pipe. Once they shark left, the girl smiled and waved to the people watching. Scary! The penguins were really active and fun to watch. They were diving from rocks into the water and swimming super fast, zooming up out of the water, and turning at break-neck speeds! I could've watched them all day (probably because I was sitting down, too!).
After the aquarium, I took a quick nap and then we went to get the mower from our old house. After 5 months on the market, we are finally closing on it tomorrow! Yay! But we wouldn't have time to stop by and get it when to go to close, so we got it yesterday. Plus that meant dinner at one of our favorite restaurants that we don't have near us now. I'm soooo excited to finally sell the house! Going back to 1 mortgage payment is going to be awesome!
So yeah, yesterday was busy, and a picture didn't get snapped. That's ok, there isn't much change from last week. But here is 25 weeks (and 1 day)!!!
I thought I would also post pictures of the fur-kids. They are a big part of our lives, and I know at least one of them is very aware of Ellie. So here they are.
Twix is the oldest. She is 6 years old. She's very shy around strangers. She prefers me, but it is always on her terms. She likes to hang out with the family, but usually at a distance.
Next is Daisy. She is 5 years old. She is ridiculous and a great source of entertainment (or fury)! She's 60 pounds of pure muscle, meaning if she escapes, she runs really far, really fast, and doesn't look back.
And finally, Chief. He's 3 years old. He's a fatty. He loves to be a part of whatever anyone is doing.
Hope you enjoyed meeting the family!
