Trip to Audubon Aquarium

This weekend we went to the Audubon Aquarium in New Orleans with friends Matt, Kristen, and their son William who turned one year old on Saturday. We took the boys to explore all that it had to offer - lots of sealife obviously... the highlights were the seahorse & frog exhibit, the enormous Gulf Coast tank with lots of sea turtles, sharks, eels, and more... the touch tanks and play areas were wonderful too. The boys really liked watching the otters and penguins too!

After our adventure at the aquarium we took a walk on the levee to Jackson Square to Cafe Du Monde to celebrate William's birthday with beignets and iced coffee:-) William like the powdered sugar more than the fried bread...

Braden got William his very own froggie that makes noise, a little white albino wind-up alligator, and a sippie-cup with William's name to wish him the best birthday!! They were so adorable together - you can see how William wanted to "touch" Braden - but there is no soft or hard discernment yet:-) Any touch is a love pat!! Cracked us up.

Thanks for checking on us... we had to get Braden his own little something to commemorate the occasion... we got him a little bumble bee to snuggle with that has some neat textures for him to explore too. Love to all!
Kodi, Brad, Braden
