|The entrance of the SEA Life Aquarium!|
Great Lakes Crossing Outlet mall in Auburn Hills, MI., recently opened a new SEA Life Aquarium. Based on all the media coverage and photos, it looked like it was going to be amazing.
I was previously invited twice. Once with my kids to come out (prior to launch) to fill up the tanks. We couldn't make it out due to bad weather conditions. We are just under an hour away from the mall. I was so bummed. It would have been a neat experience for them to wear hard hats, fill the tanks, and be a part of the media.
I was then invited as a blogger as part of the media to come out and tour the aquarium. I couldn't make that due to our homeschool schedule.
Finally, we were able to go on a homeschool field trip with other homeschoolers at a (discounted rate). Kelly's BFF Emily came along with us. The aquarium was more amazing than I thought it would be.
