Violet's favorite past time is flipping through books. Since she doesn't have a sofa or couch sized for her to laze on, she sits in her basket that is lined with fluffy stuffed animals and an occasional plastic toy.
I talk about the GA Aquarium all the time when I'm at work so I thought that it would be appropriate that I visit the world's largest aquarium. I LOVED it! It was a nice family trip with Yay, Grandpa Russo, Joe, Violet, and I. We had a great time. Here is an awesome looking jelly fish.
My very FIRST whale shark sighting! Even though they were only juveniles, they were HUGE!
Southern Australian Seadragons... It was only AFTER I snapped a few pictures of the seadragons that someone points the "no flash photography" signs. Sorry sensitive animals! I didn't mean any harm.
We made it just in time for whale shark feeding time! It was pretty anti-climatic. Because they're essentially filter feeders, they just swam around, opened their mouths and gulped teeny tiny krill.
As soon as we checked into our hotel at Atlanta for our annual trip to GGM (Great Grandma Russo) and Grandpa Russo, we had to make a stop at Violet's favorite-never-gone-to-before place, blabla. After discovering that blabla's only store was located in Virginia Highlands, we rushed over because it was only open for a few more hours the entire weekend.
Violet's eyes nearly popped out of her head when she realized the variety of dolls. Her first reaction was to grab a doll that looked like Frogina. It was all hugs for the boy version, Barnabe.
She literally ran around the entire store and hugged as many dolls as she could, some two or three at a time! It was a race to keep up!
Violet fell in LOVE with their GIANT dolls too. Yai ended up buying Violet the regular, purple version of this doll named Violet.
"Oh my goodness, so many dolls that need my love!"
