Surviving the Winter by Going to the Aquarium

Our Lucky Dragon loves animals and loves water, so the Living Planet Aquarium in Draper is an amazing place for him. He gets to have the best of both worlds.

The Aquarium is not as big as the Atlanta or Baltimore Aquariums, but it still has enough for a day of fun. You can pet Star Fish and touch Sting Rays (stingers removed). It was so much fun to hear Tau'aho laugh as a fish would swim by while he was watching.

Of course there was "Dory!"
Some of our favorites are the Penguins, the large Octopus and playful Otters. I like to look at the poisonous frogs that are so small and shockingly beautiful colors. I can see why they are so dangerous, they are so cute it is hard not to want to hold one...but the pores seep poison, so maybe not a good idea.

He would try so hard to touch the Sting Ray that his face would go into the water

There is also plenty of places for little people to run and expend energy. Ramps, hallways and even a hanging swinging rope.
