abacuses or abaci?

So what exactly is the correct plural form of the word "abacus"-- Abacuses or abaci?
According to you can actually use either one. Hmm. Just thought I'd share that.
Anyway, this post is mostly not about abaci. It's really about my Saturday adventures.

...Which were awesome.

We decided to celebrate Robert's birthday that day so we ventured off to the Draper aquarium. I didn't have high expectations because I've been to a few aquariums in Utah and none of them were really that cool... but this one was! I loved it!

Here are some photos:
The Birthday boy.
Penguins!!! Personally, this was my favorite exhibit.
You can't see them too well but you get the idea.
They had just added the otter exhibit. It was pretty awesome.
...It was Jamie's favorite part.
Come to think of it..I'm not actually sure which was my favorite. I liked both the penguins and otters.
The otter cave.
And Robert's favorite was the puffer fish.

After the aquarium we headed to IKEA where we feasted upon delicious pizza and cinnamon rolls. We toured the entire store which took a couple of hours but it was really fun. Oh and there were abaci in like every corner of every display room. So that's where those come in.
We each signed up to be part of the IKEA family.... mostly so we could get free frozen yogurt. Which was delicious.
We came back and watched Tangled which is one of my favorites.
So good.

Anyway, that's all. :)

I don't have much to say, since I was there... except that I want an abicus. I looked up how to use them. It would be so cool to take to physics or math class. Haha.

Haha, yeah that would be awesome. I really think someone needs to get you one of those as a late birthday present.

I wouldn't complain. Haha, just kidding.
