WORLD'S LARGEST AQUARIUM
really, I just wanted an excuse to write about the WORLD'S LARGEST AQUARIUM. because that's what we have in atlanta now-- the WORLD'S LARGEST AQUARIUM. and it must be written in all caps because if it's the world's largest then come on, a person's got to come correct and give propers. we visited last sunday, though only briefly because the joint sells out like, everyday. we went with the sole mission to get our photos taken for our season passes (manymanymanymany thanks, by the way, to my fabulous mom and pops-in-law for this most magnificent christmas present) but then (once we'd been frisked) we were in like flynn. took a little sneaky peek around and people, this place is The Shizz. we were only able to take in a fraction of the WORLD'S LARGEST AQUARIUM, but wow. moon jellies (lookie lookie here!) and entire schools of manta rays that seemed to be flying above our heads like a flock of birds (lookie lookie here!). as we were leaving, we heard the shrill sounds of seals, which caught us all a little off guard, judging from the bewildered looks on my children's faces. ava hasn't stopped with the when-are-we-going-back-I-need-to-go-back-I-need-to-see-the-jellies-plus-you-promised-me-a-treat-from-the-gift-shop-please-please-please-AREWEGOINGTOMORROWANDIFNOTTHENWHENAREWEGOING??? the child wants to go back and who can blame her? so do I. I plan on using the crap out of those season passes. after all, it's the WORLD'S LARGEST AQUARIUM. living the life aquatic is what I'm looking forward to.
