the magnificent Dallas World Aquarium...

DALLAS WORLD AQUARIUM

Is there anything better than spending the day at an aquarium with your grandparents? There were fish GALORE, sharks like crazy, one VERY FAT alligator, terrific turtles, magnificent monkeys and many many more things. We spent ALL day gazing, discovering, appreciating and loving on my parents.

Kid4 spent SO MUCH of her day with her finger in the air saying "LOOK, LOOK at THIS Nana" or "what is this called?" My dad enjoyed reading every sign and I enjoyed watching her every expression as she discovered more and more animals she never knew existed.

The sweet manatee fell in love with my mom. He kept coming up to her face and bouncing off of the window. Are manatees the sweetest things in the world OR WHAT?! I was thinking I might want a manatee for Christmas…. hmmmmm…….?

And this my friends is the epitome of what all our family photos looked like this trip… my moms eyes closed, Chase looking perfect and me and my chin family… in fact, I am considering changing my name and going by my obvious Indian name- TWO chins- we'll see if it sticks?

This is how my tuckered out gooses day ended. She was exhausted, in fact she met Kid2 back at the hotel before we were finished at the aquarium and she napped. She was so exhausted from the excitement, the pointing, and the walking. She picked a darling purple turtle from the gift shop and it's been her sleeping partner ever since.
