Have you ever had one of those dreams where you’re flying? I rarely remember my dreams but I do remember the flying dream I had, and it was amazing I felt like I had wings like a bird soaring through the air. My daughter Payton has been having this reoccurring dream of her flying and it’s so interesting to hear about it. Payton is four years old so her flying dream involves Santa Claus. She has told me several times about this dream and how she loves flying. I think it’s amazing that she can remember her dreams so vividly. In the dream Santa Claus brings her a flying bird costume and helps her put it on then she says she starts running to get ready to fly and then off she goes up, up, up in the air. Once in the air, she’s soaring and flapping her wings in the costume and tells me how she just loves to keep flying higher and higher with the birds. I can only imagine the free flying feeling that a bird might have. Have you ever really stopped to look at and watch a bird? Their feathers are filled with an array of beautiful colors. Have you ever gotten up close to a bird to watch them eat? Do you know that this weekend is the big grand opening of Parakeet Pointe at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas!? This is your chance to get up close to a beautiful parakeet and even feed one if you wish! I’m telling everyone to come to the Aquarium this weekend to see the brand new exhibit Parakeet Pointe. It’s located on the second floor of the Aquarium right by the food court. You’ll hear and see them flying all around you. There will be feed sticks on sale right at the entrance. Once you go in the exhibit you’ll be surrounded by parakeets singing and flying. You can even enjoy the activities we have going on this weekend over in the Pieces Room. From 11am until 3pm we’ll have face painters, a costumed parakeet character and our education department will have crafts for the kids to make all sorts of neat parakeet themed items. The parakeets are so cute and friendly . You’ll have to come see them this weekend! This is a great way to get an up close view of an amazing bird. My kids can’t stop talking about them and I’m sure you and your family will fall in love with our parakeets at Parakeet Pointe. Come this weekend and soar with us in Parakeet Pointe at the Aquarium!
