Isaac told us for his birthday he didn't want birthday presents but wanted to go to the aquarium/zoo and pacific ocean. His words not mine. We took him to Tacoma to Point Defiance Zoo. He had a good time. We stayed in the Hampton Inn and Suites and loved it! The kids enjoyed swimming. We ended up being rained on a ton. The leprechaun came the night before since we had to leave early in the morning. We woke up and was able to get the kids donuts for Isaac Birthday. They were Krispy Kreme Green donuts for St. Patricks Day.  We then drove to the zoo and aquarium that morning. Isaac was excited to see the animals especially the sharks and sting rays. After lunch it really started to rain which was okay since Isaac wanted to stay int he aquarium and pet the sea animals.  Then after we went to the hotel. The kids had a blast swimming and eating pizza. We then went to bed and woke up and drove 3 hours to the beach. This was a total bust. Cold, Windy and rainy. We only stayed about an hour and headed home.  I think he had a good trip.
