Robert's Birthday Week!

We had plan to do a lot more than we did, but due to Rob's "work week" we couldn't. When I say "work week", I mean he was suppose to be off, but he ended up at work a lot. Oh well, at least we got out. We started the aquarium. I was little scaried to go, because people were getting the swine flu when they went up there. I guess the people there caught on because there was hand sanitizer everywhere. I carry it with me anyways. Well, the aquarium here has the 2nd largest tank in the world. It has two whale sharks and other huge underwater animals. Both Rob's enjoyed the different fish, sharks and other animals. The aquarium itself is nothing like the states, but the grounds outside of it is really pretty and has a lot to do.

We also went to the "zoo", if that's what you want to call it. Let's say you want to go to the Philly Zoo, you would take the whole day to go. Well with the Okinawa Zoo, you can go between breakfast and lunch. It is something to do and it's cheap.

Roberto and I got to feed baby elephants. He liked the turtles the best. Which is weird, because they really do not do anything. There were some rides that you can go on also. They are extra. This train 200 yen a piece, so 600 yen (so like $7 or little more). The train only goes around twice on this little track!

Robert drank his sippy the whole time and didn't really care. The other rides do not look any better.

The ride above these little Japanese kids were pushing each other, because it was not going fast enough.We spent like two hours at the zoo. It was perfect timing with a nap and lunch time. Some little boy was very tired by the end of the two hours.
