AQUARIUM!!

WOWWEEEEEEE!! we had the greatest stroke of luck last night in Minneapolis - we were doing our intro to 'sharks', in which heather typically mentions something about her life-long fear of the terrifying deep sea predator, and there happened to be an aquarium educator named dana in the audience. after the show she propositioned us - "meet me at the aquarium tomorrow" she said, "and i will teach you not to be afraid of sharks!" so what could we do?? we agreed!!

and what an amazing decision it was. here is our trip - in photos:

here we are entering the "SEA LIFE" exhibit - it was in the mall of america! another first for most of us.

this is a super creepy jelly-belly-fish!

that's a slimey grimey eel-man hiding there!!

this is a super sweet adorable sea horse!!

THIS WAS THE PART WHERE HEATHER WAS THE MOST BRAVE!! and the most terrified...

it was such a fantastic trip!! look how happy we are (also pictured is Lennon, the drummer from Ha Ha Tonka and recent inductee into the Spring Standards Top Pals Hall of Fame):

SUCH GREAT TIMES! THANK YOU DANA!!
love,

OMG! As a kid, I couldn't be alone in a pool since I convinced myself a shark would somehow come out through the filter.

Way to go, Heather! Unfortunately, I couldn't even watch that video clip. ha
