My girlfriends little boy had a field trip today to the aquarium and due to a job interview she couldnt go. talked to the boss man and he let me take a vac day to go with him and im really glad he did! I was tellin my aunt about it lastnight, and she said shes never been so we made her go with us. At first I was a little nervous about possibly having to keep track of the other kids but most of the parents showed up so I didnt have to worry about that. we went at our own pace and he LOVED IT! they both couldnt get enough of the otters and of course his eyes lit up when he got to touch the rays. he had to point out all the types of fish hes caught in the pond thats on our lease, and he showed me hes a true fisherman when he started piling it on and talkin about the shark he caught. I think I heard my wallet crying when we left the giftshop but it was well worth it. we finished the trip with a stop at Sweeneys BBQ to chow down and we all had to waddle to the truck. I gotta admit I needed that break from the everyday routine and 12-16hr workdays and I know he will look back on it. watchin him walk up the arch brought back memories of my first trip with my grandma and great grandma back when they first built it, and I was about his age 20 some odd years ago (omg I can say that now!) I think the only thing that has really bothered me today was stopping to watch all the kids having a blast and thinking how some parents would rather chase drugs or not be bothered then to be there and watch their kids grow up and have fun.

Its not what happens in life, but how you react to it that matters.

He'll remember forever and so will you.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
