The Aquarium (Her Wish: Day Six).

Tessa Claire!!!

Today was “the best day ever!”  You say that about every single day, and girlfriend, I love ya for it.  That’s what you tell me about all the ice cream you’ve eaten, “Girlfriend, I love ya for it!”  I get ‘I love you’ about fifty times a day out of you, which makes my heart so happy.

We headed out early to get to the aquarium.

You really seemed to enjoy it, but there were no unicorns there, so really, this was something the other kids enjoyed.  You were cool with that.

We got back to the house, went for a swim, ate corn dogs (I have never eaten so much ‘kid food’ in my life), and then you asked if we could ride the trolley.

Out we all headed again.  The trolley was only going to take us, maybe, a total of five blocks, but you were absolutely determined to ride it.  So, we waited.
