Aquarium Trip

Today we took a trip the World Aquarium! It was SO MUCH FUN! 

We have been twice before. The first time we went on a tour similar to the one we did today with Brennan's preschool class. I don't remember it being as involved as it was today, but that could be because we had at least twice as many people.

I think Brennan and I may have gone through another time just the two of us, but I'm not sure. The last time we went with my BFF Kate and her 2 boys. We always have a good time, but today we got to do SO much stuff! 

Brennan was so excited to see the birds again because they talk:)

Sting rays

Doctor fish-so funny and tickly to have them suck on your fingers!


Feeding the turtles

even the big sea turtles!


Horseshoe  Crab

Sea Urchin! It was so cool to see it's little tentacles moving around. I guess because it's hard to believe something that looks like this can really be alive.

More awesome sea creatures!

Brennan is pretending to be in a sail boat here. The "Sting Ray City" flag is his sail:)

This is a kinkajou! It is SO cute. Very skittish to touch, but loves you if you have a banana:) He would grab your hand with his hand while he ate the banana out of your hand.

Feeding the sloth. These creatures are so strange!

We went down the tunnel slide that is surrounded by water that the sea turtles live in.

He swam right by us!:)

Here is the anteater. He was so friendly, one of the ladies picked him up and he just sniffed her.

Feeding the river otters. These guys were so excited to eat! They were yelling out at us until we fed them.

Can't see his blue tongue here, but it's a blue tongue skink.

Bearded Dragon

Brennan got to hold a snake!

I never thought I would be so fond of a snake, but knowing how much Brennan enjoys animals I am willing to hold just about anything...as long as I know it's not going to hurt me!

Here we are holding 5 snakes piled up


I didn't realize how cute they are!! Look at that face!

We did this on a groupon and to tell you the truth I was not expecting such a great experience with the tour. Highly recommended and we will definitely be doing this again! I asked Brennan what his favorite part was and he said the sucker fish (doctor fish) then he said "everything":)


  1. Looks like ya'll had alot of fun! Steer clear of those sting rays (just ask my husband, lol) Just kidding!

  2. Looks like so much fun! Great pictures :)
