Aquarium of the Pacific

We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific and it was awesome. We learned about new programs and activities they have.

For instance I never noticed the tiles when you walk in... Bring a notebook and some crayons and you can collect images of all the fish on the tiles.

There is a room where you can learn about North and South Pole right now
I know you can't really see them but we also got to touch Moon Jellies. Yep Jelly Fish I had no idea you could pet Jelly Fish without being stung but yes you can the Moon Jellies were soft and fun to pet.
Kaia loved the Sea Lions they kept swimming past her and so she started "swimming" past them

The Baby Shark pool you can touch the sharks in here

But not this one
Sea Dragon

We went early and got to see al the divers cleaning and feeding the fish
I also never noticed the embossing stations you can go and learn more about each animal and get a cool embossed image
This exhibit was a bit odd to me not sure if you can read it but it says Smell the Smell. I have never once wanted to smell a Sea Bird but you can hear.
There was an awesome room where the kids got to dress up like fish and see and touch some Tide pool creatures

The Aquarium of the Pacific was awesome. We will definitely be going back more often it was such a great experience and the kids got to learn so much I love how hands on it was it really kept the kids attention and kept them wanting more the entire time
