Last Saturday 9 (Feb.11) was Tyler’s 5th birthday. We decided to throw caution to the wind and invite 12 children to the Mall for a tour of the Sea Life Caverns and Sea Lion Show followed by cake and stuff. We were fortunate enough to have 8 parents help us out.
A few of the highlights:
The kids saw an octopus, and were wowed by the 8 appendages it used to move around.
We viewed 3 very cute crocodiles that were actually found at a pawn shop in Edmonton before being seized and given to the Mall Marine Life Division.
We watched 3 large turtles being feed romaine lettuce by 2 marine divers. The turtles are hand fed every day by divers.
There are no photos of the Sea Lion show since it is a “copywritten” show, and therefore, photos by personal cameras are prohibited.
We are so fortunate to have wonderful friends to help out even though we have been here only a short time. Speaking of our born and breed local friends-they have never been to see the Sea Lion show before, if you can believe it.
We are so thankful that our party was last Saturday. This past Saturday, the Mall played host to auditions for Canadian Idiot Idol.
In other good news, I booked my tickets HOME ( Yippee!) today for June 28 to August 10 and then from August 10 to August 16 to Chicago to visit my cousin Kelly and her family. She is expecting a baby boy in June. He will have 3 very excited BIG SISTERS.
