Comments Off on Discover Rays at The Vancouver Aquarium

Over spring break the kids and I had the opportunity to go visit the Vancouver Aquarium, with so much excitement from my son about the “Discover Rays” exhibit. This exhibit provides a hands on experience with the Rays, you get to watch them soar through the water and feel them slip beneath your fingers.

I didn’t quite know how excited Ezra would be about this experience, as not every kid will jump at the opportunity to place their hand in a pool of Rays but I was surprised at just how much him both him and Sophie enjoyed it.

The exhibit is open throughout regular hours of the aquarium, though it does close down periodically to give the Rays some rest between the flow of children and adults. The kids chose to wait to be one of the first’s in line at the 2PM showing of the Rays, we got a nice spot right up close and personal. After we had a good visit I encouraged the kids that we needed to let others have a turn, it wasn’t easy prying them away from this attraction.

Both Ezra and Sophie continued to talk about this experience once we got home. It was Sophie’s first trip to the aquarium and she learnt a new favorite word while we were there, “Whhaalllee!!!” was what I heard for a lot of the drive home and then in the bath that night she kept saying, “Fishy, Mommy, Fishy!!”

Check out some of the photos we snapped of our recent visit at Discover Rays as well as as more shots throughout the Vancouver Aquarium.

  • I’ve been trying to convince James that he needs his own “blog” Instagram account since he might be getting just a little bit more involved by the new year (starting with our holiday guide). I’ve almost got him convinced, it’s just choosing the handle that is the hard part. 😂 taking suggestions 👇🏻👇🏻 comment below something witty below... Keep in mind he has already declined “joyfuljames” (A little background of where CW & JW comes from, it’s mine and James’ initials)

  • Today’s slow moving, cozy feeling Saturday was just what I needed. Currently in bed with Sophie asleep beside me wondering if I should go to sleep or get my butt up and get some work done... decision decisions.
  • Have you heard the saying, "The Days are Long, but the Years are Short." Whelp, who's ready for the days to feel even longer with this cold draft called winter that just rolled in. I always find the days seem even longer when they are spent inside. With knowing that you are going to be spending more time inside it is important to think about the quality of air that you and your kids are breathing in. Fun Fact: Did you know that the air quality inside your home may be 5X worse than the air quality outside. Say What!? We've been improving our indoor air quality and warming up our bodies with the new Dyson Cool + Hot Link Air Purifier. Sharing more about this product (and why my Mom keeps saying she wants it for Christmas) on the blog. Click profile link.
