Joining the Denver Aquarium

 We finally got the money from the adoption tax credit... only about 8 months after we applied for it.  I'm not complaining, though.  Never look a gift horse in the mouth, as they say.  When we adopted Bri and Shane we had no idea that two years later the government would decide to make a credit, that was originally useless to us since we don't normally owe anything in taxes, suddenly refundable.  We used it to pay off our big 15 passenger van, making us entirely debt-free again except for our house.  And we bought a family membership to the Denver Aquarium.
 Probably the only time we'll ever be able to afford it.

We used the two guest passes it came with to bring Daniel's parents along since they were in town.  It was so much fun!  Not really worth the exorbitant cost, but still really good.  We rode the 3D adventure ride, petted starfish and fed stingrays, and took a ton of photos.  Danya and Gloria even got to climb a different form of rock climbing, on palm trees.
