Penguins, Pictures and Public Library

Hubby and I love to celebrate Valentine's Day.  It's cheesy...we know!  But we don't care because we look forward to it and we love it.  Quite a few years ago,  we started a tradition of going to the New England Aquarium in Boston for our Valentine Day adventure.  And this year was no different.  However, this year we added a few things.

We did start out at the Aquarium.  We love the quiet, gentle nature of all the beautiful colored fish.

My favorite, of course, is the penguins.  We probably have about a million penguin pictures by  now but we just can't help ourselves.

Outside is the pool for the seals.

Some spiny lobsters

The giant turtle


Our next stop was the Boston Public Library.  It's a building that Hubby has always wanted to visit.  The architecture was beautiful!

We thought a couple of these lion statues would look great in our front yard!

And finally we visited the Museum of Fine Arts.  Neither of us had been there in's huge!  We didn't see all the exhibits but the ones we saw were awesome!

This statue made me sad when I read the story behind it.  It's actually a baby cherub escorting a baby up to heaven.

Hubby's favorite portrait!

And our tradition has become finishing off the day a the Cheesecake Factory!   

We got our Aquarium and Museum of Fine Arts passes at the library.  We still had to pay to get in, but not as much.  And we had a gift card for The Cheesecake Factory that paid for about half the meal.

It was a long day.  We left the house at about 10:30 am and got home about 9:30 pm.  but we had a wonderful time spending the day together!
