Texas State Aquarium

While in Corpus Christi, we visited the Texas State Aquarium with our nephews and Joey's mom. I couldn't narrow down the pictures to less than 13, so here are a LOT of pictures! Joey took them and I think he got some beautiful shots. . .which is the reason why I couldn't narrow them down!
These three pictures are my favorite. . .
A beautiful owl that we saw take flight at the "Birds of Prey" show.

We found Nemo! (And Dory!)

Aubrey was a little nervous to hold this urchin thingy, but she did it!

The kids laughed and laughed inside of this. I went inside of too and almost got stuck. That would've been funny. And embarassing. But more funny than embarassing(for other people).

Fish-eyed Aubrey! If you look closely, the fish is swimming by Aubrey's face in a way that it looks like the fishes eye is Aubrey's eye. It lined up perfectly.

Nana and kids riding the whale! Funny, it didn't take them anywhere....I demand a refund! :)

Thanks Nana, Don, & Kaikoa for coming with us. We had a great time!

That's somewhere I want to go -- I think it needs to happen in conjunction with a beach trip!

Fun times!

This was indeed a great day and time well spent with the kiddos~all of them of course. It's always fun to see the kids in these type of environments enjoying all of God's creations and leaving us with amazement of how much more there is that we haven't seen of His great creations. Good Times.
