The award for most creative theme park discount/ promotion goes to the Sea Life Aquarium next to LEGOLAND California. On Friday the 15th of April it is offering up to four free admissions in exchange for a child’s binky. This promotion is in honor of the Octopus Garden exhibit that was supposed to open tomorrow, but has had its opening postponed..
However, Seal Life has promised to honor the binky/free admission offer and also give families tickets to return to see the exhibit once it is open!
One thing I really enjoy about this little aquarium is the quirky fun activities and promotions that they offer throughout the year. If your little one is having trouble saying bye-bye to their binky you might want to head over with the family!
I had big plans for my birthday this year. I considered a trip to the zoo or a day exploring Torrey Pines State Beach. I thought about taking a big family hike in some part of San Diego that we had never explored before. Well, the entire family was recovering from colds and very tired. We had alot of fun around the house, but weren’t able to get our act together until 4pm. Even then, I was getting some major grumbling as I pushed three kids, one husband and the dog out the door.
I “settled” for a very short walk along Agua Hedonida Lagoon in Carlsbad and was rewarded with a spectacular sunset walk. It was the perfect way to end my special day. As you can see the kids ended up having alot of fun despite their grumbling.
Here’s a final glimpse of the birthday girl (ME). My husband and I are leaving on a San Francisco getaway tommorrow. Ken is a really thoughtful guy, and I’m excited to become reacquainted with the city that I used to visit when growing up in San Rafael. Last time we spent the weekend there, my ten year old was only a few months old, and we came back to San Rafael in the middle of our getaway so I could nurse the baby to sleep .
Since I will be on the road I will be missing the Underwater Parks Day Festival at the Sea Life Aquarium. For more information about this great family event click here. Receive two free child admissions to this exciting event on January 16th by clicking here.
