Pengins, Penguins, Pengins

"If you are going to have a passion, do it with all of your heart." ~Mama Hen

Every one has something in particular they love. When I was a child I loved koala bears and dancing. Little Chick absolutely adores penguins! This passion of hers started about a year ago when my mom gave her the movie Happy Feet. It is her favorite movie! She also has the soundtrack and plays it in her CD player over and over while she makes her many stuffed penguins dance. It is the cutest thing to watch. Today we went to the Maritime Aquarium to see the penguins. We are members and love to go often. The penguins will only be there for one more month, so I thought it would be great to take Little Chick as often as we can. Little Chick's room has a penguin boarder that I created, she has many penguin books we read again and again and the movie to Happy Feet is her first request when I say she can pick out something special to watch. There is something so comforting in having a passion.

We love watching IMAX movies! Today we had the theater all to ourselves. VIP style!

  3. I'm with Little Chick! I love penguins. One of the most fun times we've had was visiting the New England Aquarium in Boston and seeing the many penguins there. They are just the cutest things! So fun to see the pics of Little Chick enjoying her trip to the aquarium! :-)

  18. So Sweet. My Camdyn has this same passion for elephants. Ever since she was 18 months old she's been obsessed with them. At 4 1/2 now, she's starting to love Dinos and Horses with the same passion. I wish I could channel a little bit of that passion sometimes :)

  19. Ah, penguins, I love those little tux-wearing animals! :)

    I love the Maritime Aquarium. It is only about 40 mins from where I am in NY, so I go often. One of my favorite part is seeing the big turtle in that last photo. I love watching kids there because they always get so entranced by the huge turtle!

  20. That last picture is very cool! Those giant tortoises are something else! My 6 yr old is obsessed with kitties! Little Chick looks like she is really having a ball. (:

  21. My daughter also LOVES penguins. In fact, I took her to see Santa today and she asked for a penguin. Santa's reply, "Penguins live in the South Pole." When you get tired of Happy Feet, my daughter also enjoys watching Surfs Up. It's about a surfing penguin. Old Navy and Target have penguin pjs. Crate and Barrel and Target also have penguin Christmas ornaments. For more penguin advice, you know where to find me.
