Like I said, on Sunday we went to the aquarium for my birthday party. I was so excited!
First we made a birthday crown while everyone was coming. The E fell off. Later the upside down M fell off too.
Then we had to put on smocks so that we could...
After t-shirt painting was story time.
The story was about how turtles hatch from eggs and go to the sea then come back to the beach to lay their eggs. So naturally we had to act like little turtles hatching.
Here's my costume. This is much better than the cardboard box I wear for a turtle shell at home!
Hatching from the beach
Now all the turtles have to swim to the seaweed... Why?
So that we can hide from the shark!
Some turtles preferred to swim outside of the seaweed. This is who they saw.
After we'd grown big enough we got to swim in the open ocean
The scientists put radio tags on our shells
Then we learned about Turtle Excluder Devices!
Ok, so maybe we didn't actually "learn" about Turtle Excluder Devices. But we did swim through that big net!
Later it was pizza time.
Aunty Sarita helped me cut up my pizza
And then the cake!
My turtles from home were on the cake. Don't worry turtles, we weren't going to eat you!
Handing out favors
After the party (and after a long nap) I got to open a couple of presents:
Ezra's nicely decorated present
I had cake
What a fun day!
I love birthdays!
