Aquarium? (more catch up)

The weekend after graduation we wanted to go on a family outing while Grammy was still around. First we planned to go to Hogle Zoo but the weather had other plans. We finally decided on the Aquarium in Sandy and drove out there Saturday morning. We pulled up and all agreed they had turned an old Albertsons into this now "Aquarium." Johann and I peeked inside to see if we thought it'd be worth it but we couldn't see much anyway and thought, what the hey, we're already here anyway.
Once we got inside we realized how packed it was. I think my frequent moan that there is "nothing to do in Utah" is given some merit by the fact that people are going to this "Aquarium" in droves. Maybe I'm making it out to be worse than it is, but it definitely isn't that great and really only good for 5-10 year olds, if even that. Anyhow, we enjoyed it as best we could, Henry liked looking as some of the fish (the bigger ones scared him until he realized there was glass between him and the fish) and we saw some neat water creatures. But if it hasn't already been made apparent to you, I would not recommend going to the grocery store aquarium. = )

The concerned look Henry wore on his face until he realized the fish couldn't get him.

Been there done that and yeah, when you grow up in SoCal it's hard to compete, but you can't blame them for trying.
