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
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!
