Snow Cones Vs. The Shark Tank

We took the kiddos to the Aquarium today...

there was exhibit after exhibit...

and exotic sea creatures as far as the eye could see...


but you know what they talked about the whole time we were there???

The snow cone stand that was on the way IN to the aquarium!!

I guess its kinda like the "buy them a toy and they play with the box theory" isn't it?

Oh well, we had a great family outing. And when they chose the snow cone over the shark tank it made me laugh - they always remind me that its the small, simple stuff that counts :).

Too funny!

We can go out and have a GREAT day ... doing FUN things. But, if I ask the kids what their favorite part of the day was, it might be "the sucker from the lady at the bank".

I'd have chosen the snow cones over the sharks too. But I have a deep seeded (seated?) phobia of sharks.

Like, immensely terrified.

And snow cones? Not so much. ;)

This must mean that my boyfriend & I are kids. We visited an aquarium & noticed an Italian Ice stand on the way in. We commented throughout the afternoon "I can't wait to hit the Italian Ice stand on the way out!"

We also managed to get a great photo of the jellyfish during our visit. This post gives me happy dejavu! :)

Yeah, I could see my kids remembering the sno-cones over the shark tank. =) Sounds like you guys had a wonderful summer! Happy new school year to you!
