birthday outing without pics

….because I forgot my camera.

Anyway, I took the kids to the aquarium today–we rode the Metro downtown, visited the aquarium, kicked around the soccer ball at the park, and then met up with Conor to go out for sushi. It was a big hit: the kids loved both the train and the aquarium.

Funny moment of the day: the aquarium has a tank with a clownfish and a…whatever that fish is that is the basis for Dory from “Finding Nemo.” We went past it and I said, “Wow. That’s uncanny. The Pixar versions are so real.” I mean, seriously, these fish look EXACTLY like the Pixar versions–the movements and everything.

Before we left the kids wanted to see them again. So we walked back over there and there was a woman there with a teenager. She said, “These are pretty cute, huh?” and Wesley replied, “They just like Nemo’s daddy and Dory! It’s uncanny!”

It was totally clear, too (often other people can’t understand him). The woman just burst out laughing because it was so funny coming from a 2-year-old.

Mary did a great job on Metro–I had Wesley in the baby carrier, but she was walking. She was wearing her snuggle monkey (the little backpack with leash), but she didn’t really need it; she stayed right with me, handled the escalators like a pro, and walked probably a mile, all told. What a big kid.
