A trip to the Aquarium

Last Sunday we took a family trip to the aquarium. Parker has been wanting to go so badly and we also had free kids tickets that were going to expire soon so off we went.

 It was kind of a chilly day
 Ava anxious to get in when we were in line to get our tickets..She kept pulling her bows out of her hair too...I loose so many bows.
 We went first to check out the first exhibit
 Jelly Fish
 We got to pet them..I guess they have their stingers too but the sting is too weak to penetrate a human touch..however you can feel a little something.
 They fascinate me
 Ava and Parker looking at this funny faced crab..Parker was busting up laughing at him
 HAHA...check out his funny face
 Ava loved the Star Fish
 Man this whale creeps me out...Imagine being in the ocean next to one of these things...YIPES
 Ava just loved going right up to the glass
 So much to see
 shark Eggs..I love how they cut it where you can see the sharks developing in the egg cases..I would love to actually see one hatch!!
 Ava favorite SEAHORSES...she LOVES see horses so much..and turtles!
 I will be eating you later....
 One of those Caves They had to go in everyone
 Ava ofcourse LOVED the Lorikeets
 and Parker
 I want one
 He almost crapped on me
 Nice birdie
 Kids had fun playing with everything!
 Petting the sharks
 Playground time..
 Ava jumping and running all over the place.
 Parker was hanging out on this guy squirting everyone
 Time to pet the rays
 looking at more fish
 and more jelly fish
 big crab
 mmmmm crab legs...My Fave
 Ava was getting mesmerized by all the fishes
 Relaxing watching all these fish
 Artic Foxes were being playful
 Ava kept yelling out Dory DOry!! I was like look Nemo is there too!! She didn't care for Nemo she still only wanted to point out the DORY's!
 he Husband..Hanging around chillin
 The scuba guys were waving to the kids..they got a kickout of that
 Ava just HAD to have this turtle..She takes this thing everywhere now!!
 I love the sea dragons!!!
 After the day at the Aquarium we headed over to Red Lobster for dinner. We had to indulge in the 4 course 15.00 special. We upgraded our mash potatoes to Lobster Mash damn good. The desserts were very good as well
 Parker was waiting for this moment all day
Gabe's Key Lime Pie was my fave.

What a fantastic Family day!
