Sometimes I do really geeky and embarrassing stuff for the sake of this blog…
..and other times I get to do totally awesome stuff like take my son’s Imaginext Aquaman figure along with us to the Aquarium!
It truly was an “Imaginext Christmas” for my 3 year old, as he hauled in quite the plethora of Fisher Price’s flagship toy line. One of his favorite things was the Imaginext Aquaman (who comes with a rad robo-shark).
On the way out the door for a day at Myrtle Beach’s Ripley’s Aquarium I noticed a hopeful yet reserved look in Aquaman’s eye- as if he was thinking “I’d love to go see my friends but I don’t expect an invite. I am just a toddler’s action figure. Guess I’ll stay here and play Cards Against Humanity with Han Solo.”
Don’t worry Aqua – I got you.
Aquaman’s day out on the town included stops at Chick Fil-A, Build-A-Bear, a diabetes mecca called It’s Sugar, and Wal-Mart, but his favorite stop was the one you’d expect. (And NO, Will West, Aquaman was not upset to see his friends in captivity. He is glad to know that some of them can help educate America’s youth about the creatures of the sea!)
Here are a few images documenting Aquaman’s day at the aquarium:
I’m in! They even gave me a 15% Justice League discount – it’s like having AAA!
Man, look at that shark tooth- that is huge! (Tiny Aquaman’s impression of Tiny Elvis)
“Ooh Barracuda!” I love me some Heart!
I’d reciprocate your ‘thumbs up’ but I’m not that articulated!
Hey Marty! Or was that Tom? I always mix those two up!
I can’t even remember the last time I saw this guy! Hey-O!
Everybody line up to greet your King!
Hey look! It’s the year I turned one! I was so cute at that age.
Someone should really get this to the bank. It’s not safe on display!
This place is such a dive. Wokka wokka!*
No idea why Batman’s always complaining about these guys. They’re cool dudes!
Hey, where’s Hootie? I’m here all night people!
This place is so great- I never iguana leave! I’m killing here!
