On Monday I sent Lizzy and Caleb to Grandma's house for the day, and took Jeddy and Ada to the National Aquarium.

The steamy Amazon rainforest exhibit was a particularly nice place to spend a late winter day.

Although theoretically icky and certainly undesirable to swim with, the jellyfish were surprisingly beautiful and mesmerizing.

And sharks!

And lots of fish.


And gigantic jaguar-print stingrays.

These weeny little frogs were about one inch long.  So cute!

(Poisonous....but so cute!)

We got to touch these non-stinging jellyfish.

And a ginormous turtle, probably as long as I am tall.

He's friends with the jaguar stingray and this shark.

Also of special interest to the kids was the plethora of escalators in the aquarium, and the ice cream treat afterwards.  A cool field trip, indeed.

  1. Wow! What a spectacular field trip! Jed and Ada are lucky to have such a terrific home schooling mom! You're brave to face traffic to Baltimore, too!
