A Day To Remember...

Memorial Day Male Salute

A New Adventure

Today, I went to Penn's Landing and a place called the "Adventure Aquarium" in Camden, NJ. I was hoping to strike out on my own but my Mommy, Grammy, and Pop-Pop had to tag along. Of course, I did need them to pay for things so, perhaps it's good that they came too.

First, we went inside something called a "museum" on the waterfront. It was a quiet place but there was a lot to see. Because my Grammy saw the Pirates of the Caribbean movie this weekend, she thought I just had to have a pirate hat from the museum gift shop. I didn't really like the hat so, she made everyone else wear it so she wouldn't have to feel like her money went to waste (whatever that means).

Next, we took a ride in something called a "ferry boat". The boat was in the biggest bathtub I've ever seen! It was SO BIG, you couldn't even see the tub...just the water. My Mommy said that we were in Philadelphia when we got on the boat but, we would be in Camden when we got off the boat.

When we got to the aquarium, it was a dark but fun place. There were lots of kids like me running everywhere and screaming. I was a little confused at first...but, then I decided to join the fun and start screaming my head off too! I saw lots of different things moving in lots of water. Some of the things I saw were bigger than me. I didn't quite know how to feel about that but, I was a "big boy" and didn't get scared (plus, my Mommy, Grammy, and Pop-Pop promised they wouldn't let anything eat me). We stopped for a quick bite in the food court and went into the aquarium gift shop. I got a new sippie cup, spoon & fork set, and some Finding Nemo bathtub toys!

After the aquarium, we got back on the ferry boat. This time, we were in Camden when we got on the boat and back in Philadelphia when we got off the boat. I had a really great time and hope to go back some day. We took lots of pics to share with you. Make sure you click on the exhibit and scenic grids so you can get up close and personal with the sites.

We hope you had a nice Memorial Day too!

Love, "The Booga"

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
