If you have read my blog for awhile then you know that my oldest, Owen, is ocean obsessed. And if you know how four year olds are, that means you know Reid is too. 😉
We had plans to visit the aquarium already, when The Living Planet Aquarium offered us tickets to use and giveaway. So, of course we said yes! (The giveaway is for Utah only, see the end of the post).
We have been before, but it has been a few years. We were in awe of all the growth and changes that have taken place. We were there for hours before we saw everything that the kids wanted to see.
Our favorite spot was of course the touch pool, where a friendly little sting ray kept coming back to say hi. All the kids loved this…but Natalie was beside herself excited. She squealed and kicked her legs when the stingray finally came up to her and she got to pet it.
She was surprisingly, and thankfully really gentle with it.
We enjoyed checking out the rest of the animals…not all of them ocean or fish related, although those are the only ones I snapped pics of because the lighting in the tanks was good.
We saw snakes, alligators, and penguins and this cool sea snake? that used his mouth as an excavator to build his home.
My favorite exhibit was the jelly fish room. What a delicately majestic animal.
All in all we had a blast at the Aquarium. The kids just couldn’t get enough and it made me so happy to see them fall in love with the animals.
Natalie had a sweet little moment with a sea otter. She let out the cutest little squeal and a happy stomping dance here too.
Want to come check out The Living Planet Aquarium for yourself?
I am giving away TWO family packs of 5 tickets to two winners!
Here’s the catch though:
*The Aquarium is moving to their new, bigger location in September. That means you need to use the tickets before then.
*You also need to be in Utah. You do NOT need to be a Utah resident. You just have to be in Utah during the month of August so you can use the tickets before the Aquarium moves.
*And…I am making this a QUICK giveaway. Once I choose winners, those winners will have 1 day to claim their prize.
Giveaway runs from now through Tuesday, July 23 at 9 PM MDT.
To enter, simply leave a comment with your email address so I can contact you, should you win.
One comment per person please.
The Giveaway is now closed. Congrats to our winners who were chosen through random.org:

#51: Jenn Manley, who said, “Haven’t been to the aquarium in years. The girls would lo it!”
Congratulations! I have sent you an email. Please claim your prize by Wednesday, July 24, 2013, at 5 PM MDT!
