    Friday field trip: Denver Downtown Aquarium

    As previously mentioned, we visited the Denver Downtown Aquarium during Bubby and Baby Mac's Christmas holiday visit. Here are some of the highlights:

    As we were leaving, the caricaturist at the exit approached us to ask if Bubby could pose for him, for free, in hopes of drawing some attention and business for the vendor. Now, thanks to the unexpected kindness of that talented stranger, I can clearly mark the exact moment my grandson made the transformation from Politely Posing Bubby... 

    into none other than Super Hero Bubby...

    Today's question:

    If you could be any water-living creature, what would you like to be?

    Woohoo! An easy question for a TGIF morning.

    If I could be a water-living creature (that knew how to swim) I'd like to be a dolphin. Dolphins are smart, they hang with family and friends, they like to play, and they're beautiful to watch.

    Your slideshow is beautiful to watch, too.

    A sponge.

    John Lunn is a goof-us. I'd like to be a seal.

    Thanks for sharing those awe-stricken looks on those little boys faces; beautiful. And, Bubby looks perfectly natural as a Super Hero.

    That drawing is super cute! That had to be a fun day!
    If I could be any water creature, it would be a dolphin. They look happy and carefree. I would love that.

    Your slide show is wonderful but Bubby as a Super Hero is absolutely awesome!

    If I were a sea creature I'm pretty sure I would want to be a Mermaid! Amara would be so excited to have a mermaid for a Grandma!!!!

    Those are amazing pictures and I love Bubby's looks just like him! Baby Mac has such a beautiful smile too.

    I would be a sea turtle....they are reviered (did I spell that right?) in Hawaii!

    Love that caricature! I bet he was so proud of it. My boys would have love something like that!
