Princesses, Frogs and Fish!

This past weekend was an eventful one for us, they usually are, but this one was exceptionally fun. We started off the weekend by attending the Georgia Aquarium's promotion of The Princess and the Frog, with Disney. It was princess day so all little girls were encouraged to dress up like the favorite princess. Now seriously who is going to miss that? LOL!!

So we got up bright and early to get properly attired as Sleeping Beauty in all her finery (plus long sleeve shirt, tights and leggings since it was a smidge chilly) and did our hair in a princess bun before topping it all off with a crown. At the aquarium we met up with Mrs. K., A and J, and Mrs. J and Mr. C, M and L. Here is the pretty shot of all of our princesses who happened to find a frog.

Once the frog had hopped away with a cheerful goodbye ribbit, we were on to the fish. This is the big excitement, and a great draw. If you have never been to the Georgia Aquarium I highly recommend it, even in its current state of construction. Just know ahead of time that some of the exhibits including the sea otters an the belugas are closed while they add on the Dolphin exhibit. It is a bit of a bummer, but the large tank is magnificent and awe inspiring with it's many inhabitants including 4 whale sharks and 2 huge Manta Rays.

Look at the size of her compared to the kids. Boogie is 3 feet tall and the ray is easily twice her size. They are amazing.

There are lots of different habitats to see in the aquarium, and its all the better when there are little princesses walking around enjoying the scenery.

There are huge windows all along the big tank where the kids (and Adults) can sit and just watch all the fish swim by.

I think as a frequent visitor Boogie took it upon herself to point out some of the finer points of this particular window area to her best friend L. We see this look at our house quiet often, and it makes me wonder if I don't use it alot. Hhhmmmm...

With one last photo opp out of the way, it was time to head out. This by the way was simply a lucky shot as Boogie can not seem to stand still for longer then about a second, and definitely not for her mommy to take a picture. Luck be a lady!

The princesses needed some fresh air and so we headed to the big open space to run out the rest of that energy.

I was able to snag this cute one of Boogie and A before they headed off to the big field wonderfully placed between the Aquarium and the World of Coke, smart idea guys! Once the grass was reached it was all over from there.

The energy soon started to fade, and before long the princess temper tantrum's set in.

If you are not a parent or you are a soon to be parent the above picture is a sign that it is time to go home. Be forewarned this can happen quickly and in any location. There are a few variations of this pose, but they all mean "It's nap time".

So we said goodbye to the Aquarium and The World of Coke and the other princesses that were striking some of the variations of the above pose and headed back to the car. It was a fabulous day and I think all those involved had a great time.
