Something's Fishy

While DH was in Iraq a couple of years ago, the base sponsored a trip for all of us left behind. It was to the Asamushi Aquarium! I adore aquariums, as do my kids, so were in!

This was a smaller aquarium, but it did have a really, really cool feature: you could pose right next to a real life dolphin!!! How cool is that? I mean, we were literally inches away from it. I know, the littlest things excite me!

They also had a really cool dolphin show. Unfortunately for us, it was all in Japanese! Well, of course it would be...we are in Japan, after all! At the time we had only lived here for a few months and I will still adapting. See, although we live off base, we pretty much spend all of our time on base and interact with only Americans. It is really kind of strange, because at times I do have to remind myself that I am in Japan! Although we could not understand the narration of the show, it was cool to listen to the inflection...you could surely tell when something big was going to happen! LOL

What neat looking pages and wow looks like a neat place and like everyone had a great time... My husband spent 6 weeks in China and they opened the panda reserve just for him and another couple, we have pictures and a video of him holding and hugging a baby panda, sure wish I got to go on that trip...

It sounds like a fun trip to the aquarium. I would get excited about being that close to a dolphin too!
Great scrap pages!

Cute layout and that looks like so much fun! I just love aquariums-that's always my favorite section at the zoo.
