The other day we ventured out to the Birch Aquarium at Scripps. It was my first time going and Mason's too. We had been looking forward to taking him for quite some time but had to wait until he was old enough to actually be interested in seeing the exhibits. The sea horse exhibit was great as were the tide pools, and we arrived just in time to view the feeding frenzy in the 70,000 gallon kelp forest tank. It was really cool.
