Heart warming stories

Since my 7-year-old son is in spring vacation now and I had a day off yesterday, we went to the aquarium yesterday.

I like aquariums very much because looking at sea animals makes me feel relaxed.

My children also like sea animals.

We enjoyed feeding sea tutles and piranhas.

It was the first time for us to feed piranhas!



My son suddenly said when we were walking:

"Look! That is like my dad who has a day off!"

I looked at the place which he pointed at, there was a big Steller sea lion sleeping.



Women who were watching the Steller sea lion near my son heard what he said and laughed at him.

I was a little embarrassed.


We enjoyed watching sea animals very much.

Spotted garden eels were very interesting!

I wondered why they were facing in the same direction.


The dolphin show was amazing!

The dolphins seemed to enjoy showing their jump.


Feeding fishes by the staff were very interesting and fantastic.



Furthermore, something good happened to us yesterday.

I bought three soft ice creams for my children and me at the light meal store.

I was carrying two bags and a small ballon which my 5-year-old daughter got at that time.

The young store clerk made the first soft ice cream and handed it to me.

Since I had to recieve the other two, I was going to hand the first one to my son.

I turned around, he was not there.

"Where is he?"

I asked to my daughter.

"He went to the suvenior shop."

She answered.

"What?? Oh my goodness! Anyway, can you hold the soft ice cream for a scond? Please be careful. Don't drop it!"

I asked her and handed it to her.

Then I recieved the second one and turned around to her, she said:

"I have dropped it..."

She almost started crying.

"Oh my goodness! I told you to be careful! Oh my goodness! What am I going to do?"

There was a long line after us.

I picked up the dropped soft ice cream, but my hands were already full and I couldn't do any more.

Suddenly the woman waiting after us told me:

"Would you like me to hold those? You should ask the store to dispose of the dropped one."

"Oh, thank you!"

Another woman near us started cleaning the dirty part of the ground with her tissures.

"Oh, I am sorry. Thank you, Thank you very much!"

I told her.

Since my son came back, I asked him to hold the ballon and soft ice creams.

"What happened?"

He asked me.

"She dropped a soft ice cream and they are helping for me. Don't go somewhere without telling me!"

I told him.

Then the store clerk told me:

"This is the new soft ice cream. Here you are."

"Really? May I have it? Oh, thank you. Thank you so much!"

Thanks to their help, we could solve the trouble.

I was really touched by their kindness.

I told my children:

"If we find someone in trouble, we will try to help them."

They said:

"Of course!"


After we got out ouf the entrance gate of the aquarium and got into my car, I noticed my daughter didn't hold her water bottle.

I asked her:

"Where is your water bottle?"

She answered:

"Oh? Where is it? I don't remember."

"Oh no! Maybe you left it somewhere in the aquarium. Let's go to the entrance gate and try to ask the aquarium staff whether someone found it."

I told her and went to the entrance gate of the aquarium with them.

"Exuse me, did anyone find my daughter's water bottle? She lost it somewhere in the aquarium."

I asked the staff.

"Wait a mintue."

She asked another staff who was in the back office, then I saw him bringing my daughter's water bottle.

"Oh, that is hers!"

I told them.

Since I wrote her name on the water bottle bag, they asked her name and I answered it.

"You are very lucky! Someone has already found your water bottle."

The staff told me.

I told my daugher:

"Good for you! Say thank you to them."

"Thank you!"

We were relieved to find it soon.

Some troubles happened to us, but we were helped by many kind people.

I felt really happy and these happenings made our holiday more precious and happier.

(Actually we went to the aquarium last Wednesday.

Since I overslept yesterday morning,

I couldn't finish writing this article yesterday.

That's why I wrote that we went to the aquarium "yesterday".)

  1. Hello Kumi-san,

    I enjoy looking a fish when I go to an aquarium but unfortunately I have not been to one in a long time as there as no good ones near where I live.

    Your trip sounded fun and it was good that people were helpful in assisting you to fix some problems you encountered.

    Here is a list of some of the issues found in the post:

    Reason: I removed the ending yesterday because it was not needed. Because you already said you had a day off yesterday, so you just had to say we went to the aquarium.
