Go fish

1 Comment

I am so in love with the Vancouver Aquarium on a rainy Vancouver morning. We actually went back in December but I have only now gone through the pictures to put a post together. As always, we had a great time and as always Thomas made up new names for every fish/animal we saw. I guess it is a toddler thing but every time I would say something like, “Oh look Thomas, that fish is called a Tang” he would look at me as though I had said “Oh look Thomas. That little fish is called a Giant Sea Elephant” and would correct me with his own taxonomy, saying things like “Mama! That is a BLERNER, NOT a TANG!” (emphasis Thomas). The next time we would come across the fish he would have named it something different so it was really difficult to keep track of my Blerners versus my Feenies, but I`ll learn, or he will.

We were able to agree that these were, in fact, Jellyfish (only because the kid next to us said Hey! Jellyfish! so Thomas followed suit)

Kermit. This is where, on many trip to the Aquarium, we spend a great deal of time. It is back in a dark corner near the bathrooms and emergency exit, far from any of the gorgeous sea creatures that we have paid $25 to come and see.

These last few pics are of our favourite little creatures in the whole place. They are so crazy cute that I want to bring a ziploc bag and scoop them up and take them home, which I imagine is frowned upon. We have both agreed that these ones are called Pokey Pokies!

Poky Pokie!

Can you stand it?!?!?!? They could only possibly be cuter if they were wearing little hats.
