Just us and our two boys out for the day

My friend Marcy and I took Will and Pete to the Boston Aquarium Friday. Everyone else was in school but the boys don’t start until Tuesday. The ride in was uneventful except for Marcy rolling Will’s fingers up in the window but he has plenty so I wasn’t worried about him losing a couple.

It was nice for the boys to be able to explore on their own terms instead of being dragged from exhibit to exhibit. It did mean that we split up because Will loved watching the penguins and spent a half hour watching them. We also enjoyed sitting on a bench looking at a bronze snake.

Will touched a ray, a starfish and a sea urchin because he’s braver than me. I only touched the ray and it creeped me out. It’s interesting to see what he wants to look at because it’s impossible to predict what will catch his interest. He didn’t care about the fish; well, it’s an aquarium – who goes there to see fish? He liked the penguins, seals and the two snakes.

More than three days later he still occasionally walks up to me and says, “Two snakes.”

oohhh, stingrays freak me out too! I fed one at the Arizona zoo once and I seriously thought I was going to die.
But I didn't.

I was pretty freaked out but was preoccupied with making sure Will was gentle with it.
