Mommy, I want a seahorse!

Thing 2 recently went to Monterey to visit Molly, one of her friends from Stanford who will be studying off campus for the next little while.  The trip to Monterey included a visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium which prompted Thing 2 to post the following message on my Facebook wall:  ” Mommy, I want a seahorse.  Thought you should know.  That’s all. Love you.”  Thing 3 “likes” this idea.  My cousin David wants to know if I still have my saddles.  Oh, the joys of Facebook!

Thing 2 was never the kid that wanted a horse or a pony as a child, so the request for a seahorse just struck me funny.  In fact I got a great chuckle out of it!

I found a few pictures on the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s website to share with you.

They have more than 15 varieties of Seahorses!

I am unsure which one Thing 2 wants.
