A Day of Cuteness

This Memorial Day weekend was the rainiest in the history of my mind. To escape the gloomy drippiness of the weather, we went to the Denver Aquarium. It was totally fun-filled with cute creatures like sea horses, jelly fish, and puffer fish. They've also got a huge shark tank with lots of big, toothy monsters swimming around and around. Those were not so cute, but entirely fascinating.

However, there is only so much a grown person can take being in a public place swarming with squealing booger-pickers, so we left the mysterious depths of the aquarium and spent the rest of the afternoon in the warm and germ-free respite of our house.

Did you know you can rent Nintendo games from Blockbuster? Lucky for us, we chose Mario Kart. Why is everything Mario does so gosh darn cute?! This game is rad.

The cuteness continued with a viewing of Australia. The movie got some bad reviews and I can understand why. "Over the Rainbow" was over the top, and why was Drover's name also his occupation? But, that little boy was adorable and I loved him. I also found myself a new nickname--Mrs. Boss. It's perfect!
