Fish and Sharks and Sting Rays...Oh My!

John took a day off to hang with the family so we went to the Dallas World Aquarium. I'd never been there before so it was a fun adventure! 

We showed up pretty much after it opened and joined about 5 senior citizens - we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Austin and Addie were so excited just from the walk up to the admissions desk. We probably could have called it a day! 

Waiting to buy our tickets 





I loved the monkeys - they were fun and not what I was expecting at the aquarium!


This guy was chill


Austin and Addie liked the one that was a little more their size


The boys liked the sting rays. We got to watch a guy feed them and the snapping turtles sharing their tank. That was pretty cool!


Austin thought this thing was pretty cool. I thought it was weird that there was a sizable hole that he could stick his fingers through.


The jaguar was Addie's fave.


Not going to lie - it was my fave too. She was gorgeous!


The kids are roaring at the jaguar - she couldn't care less!


John wants to be just like this guy. 


This shark was pretty cool. We got to watch him eat too.


Weston and Grayson LOVED the shark tank. We probably could have stayed there for hours.


John tried to make Gray lunch. I'm glad the shark just passed him over.


One last look at the sharks!


The parrots were pretty funny. Anything that Austin did, they would mimic. 



We're so blessed that John is in a job that allows him to take a day off to go play at the aquarium. It was a great family experience and we'll definitely be back!
