A Day of Fun

It was my boyfriend's birthday about 1 week ago. He hates birthday's and didn't want to do anything on his birthday so I planned a "day together day" a few days before. We both took the day off from life to hang out and had fun together.

He loves the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach so we went there to look at the fishies and feed the birds.

After seeing the movie Seven Pounds we have both decided it would be really cool to have a jellyfish for a pet, although we never will.

We also came across this guy. I know he's some sort of ray, but for the life of me I can't remember what kind. He was HUGE though! I wanted to sit on his back and go for a ride but Chris said I couldn't :(. Hehehe

Next if was off to feed the birds. These guys were nuts! One of the sneak attacked me from the back and landed on my shoulder. Another landed on Chris, pooped on him and the proceeded to use it's beak to climb around on Chris' shirt collar. There was another one that drank most of the nector we bought and after each drink would wipe his tongue off on Chris' thumb.

This octopus tried to eat me through the glass. I thought I was a goner for sure! At the last second Chris saved me and pulled me away to safety. My hero!

Then we found this guy. Most of you don't know, but I LOVE turtles. We had a desert tourtise named Lightening when I was little. He is my favorite pet that we've ever had. Anyhow, I tried to keep this guy too. I think he would go nicely with the jellyfish and the ray. Once again I was told, "No". He never let's me have any fun I swear! hahaha

After the aquarium we decided to walk around and see what else was in the area. Did you know that Long Beach has a pier? Either did we! Granted, it wasn't like the one in Huntington Beach or Santa Monica, but still. There were pirates (tour guides dressed like pirates) out on the pier teaching each other how to tie knots and throw ropes properly. We stopped and watched for a bit and continued on our walk to explore other near buy businesses. Unfortunately I didn't take anymore pictures.

After our walk we decided to head back to avoid some traffic. All in all it was a fantastic day and I'm glad we were able to spend the day together. We both had a great time and were able to take much needed break.
