There was even a playground with a ball pit to jump around in directly underneath these sharks.
Connor was thoroughly exhausted leaving Aquatopia. She fell fast asleep in her stroller freeing me up for uninterrupted shopping. I didn't get much - just a dress marked down to 5 euros and a 2 euro skirt for Connor. I then strolled a sleeping Connor all over Antwerp. We got very lost looking for the Port of Antwerp and went several miles off course. But now I can say I have seen every part of Antwerp. Except the Diamond Museum. I was hoping to go there in the afternoon, but after my failed navigation we were pooped. Next time!
As I write this the clouds are again thick and dreary. We are finger painting this morning and hope to find the local indoor pool this afternoon. I feel a little guilty since all Belgian children go to school here at age 2 and a half, so potential playmates are hard to find. It just doesn't seem right to put Connor in a school 3 months before we leave. Especially since our weekends are always very full and tiring.
Do you have any great ideas for cold weather activities? I am open to suggestion. You have to laugh at that "Grass is Always Greener" saying. When you can't be home with your kids you feel guilt about that, but when you are home with them you feel guilt about them not being with other kids their age!
