I thought that Rowan might be a bit young and not get much out of it, but he had a ball wandering around, trying to touch penguins and looking at jellyfish and other creatures. I'd thoroughly recommend an aquarium for those with a young child.
Here are a bunch of photos from our day!
We started off with lunch, as the traffic into the City was busier than we were expecting (and didn't want a cranky baby on our hands)
Rowan was fascinated by the penguins and loved watching them swim and/or waddle past.
Matt took this one of us (no flash allowed in the aquarium, obviously)
He chilled in the pram (and wanted to hold my glasses) for a while after the penguin enclosure, and we looked at other environments...
Rowan and Matt were looking at the turtles...
... and Rowan wanted to touch the turtle.
... only he got bitten! It was only a nip, but Rowan was a bit apprehensive about putting his hand in the water after that. ;)
There was a BIG round room with sharks and other large sea creatures, there weren't too many people in there at the time we passed through so Rowan wandered around the edges and lay on the floor for a while. I think he found it quite calming.
Exploring the gift store (we didn't buy anything)
Walking with Daddy (I bought Rowan's first 'real' pair of shoes during the week)
I <3 the toddling.
