“Grandad! Come here! I want to show you something!” Isaac corralled Grandad into the kitchen to show him the awesome cheesy photos of our foursome at the aquarium a couple weeks ago.
The photos, pinned to the frige with periodic table of element magnets, were a great investment. Isaac points to them while I make dinner and says, “We’re in a clam! We’re on a stingray! We’re on a turtle! I don’t like it o-po-pus.”
So Isaac showed these prized treasures to Grandad and told everyone we were going to the aquarium. With enthusiasm like that—and a season pass—who could say no?
On our way there I asked Chris what his favorite part is. “The bathroom.” Eye roll. I turned around. “Isaac, what’s your favorite part of the aquarium?” “The turtles and the stingrays.”
I turned back to Chris. “Isaac gave me a real answer!” We saw those turtles! And we saw those stingrays! And Grandad got Isaac another set of photos to admire on the fridge, and Eloise took a nap.
