Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific

Last Monday Ava and I had a mommy and daughter day and met up with one of my friends I have not seen in forever Amy and her daughter. We been discussing how we needed to get together and get the girls together so we decided to meet at the Long Beach Aquarium.
I was thinking I brought Ava before to the Aquarium but I could be mistaken
She did not know quite what to expect
First thing we did when we got there..And after I got my morning coffee...was go to the LorikeetForest. Bought a little thing of nectar and got mobbed for it almost immediately as we walked in. Ava I think really seemed to like them.
I was praying that I would not get pooped on.
She wanted to pet them but we got warned that they do bite and hard.
I think Cambria was a little unsure at first but she did not seem to scared
Ava got brave enough to try and feed the nectar to the birds
Now they were getting into the birds for a bit but soon they lost interest and rather played with the plastic protective doors at the exit.
They had this little rain section there that the girls were really loving. It was hard to get them to leave it.
Then there was the little playground. Ava went right for the Shark
Cambria came and joined was pretty impossible for me to get a picture of the two of them looking at the camera at the same time
We tried to get them to sit together for a photo..I guess it was too stimulating for them.
Ava loved looking at the fish but i think every time I let her out she was more interested in wandering around
This was a big one
They actually were having a little convo at this point.
Pretty fish
I love the little cave areas. I tried to get a better photo but she was too hard to keep still.
Someone is looking tired
They had fun sitting here for awhile.
One of the last things we saw were these sea dragons. They were really cool.
After the aquarium Amy and I walked the girls on the boardwalk area and Ava knock out on the walk. We walked over to get some Ice cream as well at Cold Stone.
It was a pretty nice afternoon..I really need to get with them more often.
