Yesterday we went to a birthday party at the Children's Aquarium at Fair Park. It was AWESOME! I mean for parents and kiddos. Because of the birthday party we got in for free, but the cost really isn't all that bad!
$8.00 - adult
$6.00 - child (3-11) and senior (65+)
Ages 2 and under – free!
Anyways, Laci had a blast and we had such a good time seeing all the different things there. My favorite time of the entire day was with the Sting Rays. Laci got to feed them and pet them. Another parent commented on how brave she was because she was just sticking her hand in there and had no fear!
This will be a picture heavy post, but I can't help it, it was all soooo cool!
Here is Laci before we got to see the sharks and sting rays.

Looking at the sharks:
Laci petting and feeding the sting rays. This was just amazing!
Back inside there were so many other fun things to see too. This is Laci and Daddy being taken away by the Octopus:
These are the moon jelly's they were so pretty!
Laci and Mommy with the moon jelly's:
These are Poisonous barbed Lion Fish, I thought they looked neat!
So I did a self portrait with them:
Laci and Mommy with a huge lobster or something like that:
Laci and Daddy with a huge lizard of some sort, I looked for his species name, but couldn't find one.
Hubby took some amazing pictures of some sea horses! They were so pretty. It was really neat to learn about them too. Apparently they aren't very good swimmers so when a current comes along they attach themselves to sea plant life like this. It was awesome!

Last but not least, Laci with one of her school mates giving hugs as they said bye...
We had SO much fun! What a wonderful party! I totally would go there again and would encourage others to go too!
