Aquarium

The first day of our vacation, we headed to the Ripley's Aquarium.  Daniel had won 4 passes at the Science Fair so our total admission was under $8.  We splurged on a totally tasteless yet expensive lunch at the aquarium.   One piece of advice---bring some snacks.  McDonald's had more taste than the meals that were totally overpriced.  Oh well, live and learn. 

I wish I could just sit and watch the tanks all day...but my brood are a little more restless than that.  I still got some great video of the tanks.  I'm still learning the settings on my camera, so a lot of my pictures did not turn out as well as I hoped.

Where they get that goofiness, I'll never know.

The tunnel...this is our first trip where Michael has not been in a stroller...he decided to take a break on the moving sidewalk.

We did have a great time and the crowds were very manageable this time.  We actually bumped into a pastor we knew from our time at Trevecca.  I thought he looked really familiar and then I just had to approach and ask.  It truly is a small world.

  1. I had to laugh out loud at your comments about the aquarium food! Last year we took the kids and got in for a wonderful price because of Chris's military discount. We saved so much getting in that we thought we would splurge on the meal there. BIG MISTAKE!!! LOL You're right, live and learn!
