We were lucky enough to get Carole for a whole week out here and we managed to sneak out for an afternoon and head up to the aquarium in Denver.
We ate lunch at the seafood restaurant in the aquarium first (which I think is the most backwards thing I have ever heard of, but the food was good and the giant aquarium at our table that even included a Mermaid show was awesome).
Look at the trepidation in Austin wanting to touch the mermaids hands but not quite being sure if it's a good idea.
Look at this ham-bone attempting to smile at me. :-)
And this one with her true "Crystal smile".
This was Tyler's facial expression the whole time, kind of tired...kind of scared.
Austin making friends with the turtle.
They even have a tiger at the aquarium.
Marmee taking pictures of the fish and the girls mesmerized by her.
It's not a great picture due to the glare but since sharks are my favorite animal I had to include this picture.
And of course there was a bounce house outside that we had to jump in.
Oh yeah and look what followed us home from Denver on Saturday...poor big beast needed a good home. :-)
