kids cactus outfits (ateljee) / green hunter boots (janie and jack) / pink hunter boots (janie and jack) / my converse (nordstrom) / green maternity skinny jeans (a pea in the pod) / red sweater (rag and bone)
Yesterday we woke up got dressed, I purposely wore something bright so my kids could find me amongst the aquarium crowds. I also dressed my kids in matching outfits just incase they lost me and I could easily describe what they were wearing (have you seen two toddlers wearing cacti?) We were all pumped and ready to do this aquarium.
To our disappointment, we found out the one thing the kids had been talking about, the penguin encounter, was booked for the day.
But it was not a complete loss. I learned so many tips and tricks about the aquarium. Today I have decided to share my knowledge so you don’t make the same mistakes I did.
Always call before you go.
Exhibits close a lot, so make sure you call ahead to make sure what you want to see is open the day you plan on going.
My kids wanted to see the shark feeding at 1:30 but that too was closed. I heard it’s a must.
You have to book ahead for the penguin encounter which is once a day at 1pm. It is an additional $24 per person for ages 5+. So this means when we go, I will have to bring an extra helping hand to watch my other two children.
Discounts, Monday after 6. It is $5 off per ticket (adults which are normally $17+ and children $12+ so it’s a pretty good deal)
I bet there are so many other tips and tricks, these are just the ones I gathered.
One day we will go on the perfect date and get it right. And when we do, we’ll be sure to report back in true Birdalamode form aka blogpost 🙂
Have a great day everyone!
