Ada’s Big Birthday Surprise!
I realized that I never posted the pictures and video of Ada’s big birthday trip!
Her birthday was in April. I’m a little late.
My parents took us to Newport Aquarium because they have a program where you can pay extra to meet the penguins up close.
Ever since Ada was tiny she has loved penguins! It actually started when she was less than a year old and we went to the same aquarium with my parents. Ada saw a stuffed penguin in the gift shop on the way out. She bent down so she was face to face with it and said, “Hi!” Then she picked it up, and the rest was history.
She still sleeps with Birdie the penguin. He is her most beloved possession!
She took Birdie back to the aquarium to visit his relatives. He’s on the left in this picture. Pink Heart, who belongs to Rosie, is on the right.
We planned this aquarium trip without telling her what we were doing. She didn’t know she was going to actually get to sit in a room full of penguins and pet them!
We had so much fun! First we visited the entire aquarium. We did the penguins last. Only Ada and I actually went to pet the penguins.
Penguins are just like ducks. No anal sphincter, which means they shoot poop everywhere! (You have to see the poop shooting incident in the video!!)
Ada’s face when getting ready to pet a penguin!
This was after the aquarium, under a very dark and red canopy.
And…the vlog! This is one of our favorite vlogs just because of the memories. Ada screamed her way through the shark bridge, and petted penguins…
