Love gets you up at 4:30


Love explains why you will do things that under normal circumstances you would never do. 

For example, love gets you up at 4:30 on a Saturday morning to go with your family to an aquarium that is almost 4 hours away. 

Or maybe that's insanity? But I'm gonna go with love. 

So yes, we met my parents Saturday morning and headed to the Newport Aquarium.

We've been there a few times before, but it had been years since this last time.

The kids were SO excited!

And I was excited for them.

I'm not a personal fan of fish, BUT the sharks were really cool!

And I really enjoyed this fella.

I was glad that my parents joined us, but sadly dad couldn't walk it. But I know my dad enjoyed his quiet time alone on his laptop probably more than he would fish anyways. (hi dad!)

So yes both of our kids get a big kick out of fish and whathaveyou

But Hope has a downright obsession with sharks. It all started with that movie Soul Surfer and it hasn't let up, in fact she asks all the time if we can go to Hawaii to see Bethany Hamilton.

Yeah that's probably never going to happen, so pet a turtle instead.

I guess they come by this love of the marine life honestly from their daddy.

Maybe one of them will grow up and become a Marine Biologist.

Or a professional fisherman?

More than likely it's just a phase. But I'm glad we were able to do something fun and different that agreed with one of their phases.

Even if it did mean getting up at 4:30.

4:30 sure is early, but it does look like fun.
