Take me to the Aquarium!

Over the Labor Day weekend, we took a road trip to Dallas to escape for a few days after Paul's test. While there we went to the Dallas World Aquarium. It was a hit. Hattie LOVES animals, we discovered. We'll have to hit the zoo next time.

Some crocodiles, if you can see them.

They are looking at a green bird with a black head...it blends in pretty well.

To our right is a manatee hovering behind us...it was hard to get a good picture here because everyone wanted one.

Cool parrots

Hattie wanted to touch everything. Plus she liked being out of her stroller most of the time, getting spoiled by dad.

These fish are bigger than the ones at Wal-Mart!

I loved these frogs...they looked almost plastic.

Bad picture, but that is the coolest seahorse I have ever seen.

I loved being in the shark tank and seeing them swimming around us.

A puffer fish, I think.

Hattie liked the stinky pink flamingos.

Looks like a fabulous aquarium! How fun! My kids would love to see those frogs.

Hattie is such a doll! Doesn't she turn one this month? I'm sure I should remember that better!

Glad Paul got to take some time off.

Looks like fun, I want to go!! Sometimes I think I have more fun at those kind of things than my kids do! Your daughter is adorable. Someday I'll try to be in Ontario the same time you are, it would be nice to see you again!!

What a cool family outing! I really like the picture of Paul & Hattie with the reflection on the glass. Cute moment. :)
