The Dallas World Aquarium Field Trip

On Tuesday, we went on a field trip to the Dallas World Aquarium with Sophia's school. For Sophia, it was like being there for the first time since she went for the first time when she was 1. 
And this time, she got to fully enjoy and appreciate the experience.

She got to feed a toucan. They eat blueberries by the way. 

And this time around Sophia had more of a reaction to the animals. 

Yes, I know this one is blurry. I turned my flash off. But I just liked the water-like quality of the pic.

I was pretty impressed with these crabs. They were huge (can't really get a true sense of their hugeness from this pic, but believe me, they were).

All the kids were excited to see Nemo.

And how cute is this penguin giving the staff some love?

And then, we finally made it to the tunnel. The tunnel is my favorite part.

It's my favorite because you can just be sitting there, and all of a sudden a shark will swim past you (or above you).

We also got to see a spotted jaguar (part of their jungle/rain forest theme I guess?).

And then it was time to say good-bye!

Then, we ate lunch with her friend Cale and his mom Allison. And after that, got to go for a swim in their pool.

We eventually made it home for nap time and then it was off to dance at 6.
Busy, fun day!

Sometimes those really busy days are really fun! How is dance going?
