aqautic experienceYesterday afternoon, my wife and I took the girls out to Schaumburg for the Aquatic Experience - Chicago, a first-ever event assembled by the World Pet Association to bring "everything aquatic under one roof." Having previously introduced readers to the show through a ticket giveaway here on The Rock Father, we attended as Media guests, and the girls were excited - particularly Addie, who was amped-up about "seeing the fish" all week. After all, we've made special trips over to Bass Pro Shops just to visit their water-dwelling residents, and the kids love visiting "Nemo" when we head down to my Mom's house... where they have an in-wall aquarium.

Having just released their music video for "Tambourine Submarine" earlier this month (watch it here), a visual piece for "Fish Sticks" has arrived. I wonder if they've ever run into the OCTONAUTS in their travels? Check out the new clip on The Rock Father below...
