whale you be mine?
Every year for Valentine's Day we take the kids on a surprise family adventure. We have gone to build a bear, a dinosaur museum, ice skating, and a butterfly conservatory. This year our theme was "whale you be my Valentine." For dessert on Valentine's Day we got them a whale shaped ice cream cake with that message on it and then they had to guess where we were going. After a few questions they figured it out and a few days later we set out to the Mystic aquarium. The kids had a blast! They touched sting rays, watched a sea lion show, and saw beluga whales. For lunch we ventured into the town of Mystic and enjoyed pizza at the restaurant that is now famous from the movie "Mystic pizza." This is a wonderful tradition that the kids look forward to every year.
