Aquarium and Hiking

We went to visit my dad and his wife yesterday, and we took the girls to the Living Planet Aquarium that is right by their house. Lizzy LOVED it. She was squealing with delight and trembling with excitement. It was a really neat aquarium. There was even an octupus in a tank. Lizzy was afraid of the sharks, and also there was a tank with really large "river" fish that she wouldn't go very close to, but her favorite was the tank that had "Nemo" and "Dory" fish. You can watch the video to see her reaction. This morning we went hiking with the girls in their hiking backpacks. They had a super fun time on the hike. Lizzy would point out that the trail looked like a "V" every time we hit a switchback, and when we got close to a river she said, "I hear a waterfall!" When we were still close to the bottom, and you could hear the road, a car with a really rumbly engine went by and made a funny noise, and Lizzy said, "I hear a cow!" It did sound like a cow, too.
