We decided to head off to the Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine to get out of this heat and take the kids to have a little fun. Hannah has been under the weather a little bit this past week so we needed to get out of the house because they were itching for some fun! The kids were so excited to see the a new aquarium and they had a blast. They got to pet star fish, crabs, and other random “touchable” see creatures. Hannah asked the whole way through the aquarium when she would be able to touch a shark. I was hopeful for her but knew that wouldn’t happen. The starfish sufficed. After about an hour in the aquarium we made it to the gift shop. $26 later on a few sussies, we met up with my mom {Memaw} to get some eats. After lunch, we had a carousel ride, train ride, some rest time and some playful kitten time at Memaw’s. She found 4 abandoned kittens {about 4 weeks old} and she is nursing them back to health. Hannah and Noah LOVE them dearly, but husband is allergic. Boo to allergies. We had such a fun, and COOL day!

Hannah was SO excited to touch the starfish! Noah was a little nervous.

They loved the bridge that had a see-through floor into the stingray tank.

There was also a “bubble” inside a kid’s cave where they could get in for a closer look! It literally was a kid’s only cave. My sister-in-law and I to bend as low as possible to get through it!

The octopus garden was AWESOME! I’ve actually never see an octopus in person. Hannah was fascinated!

The kittens names were chosen by Hannah… “Stripes, Tiger, Play and Buley” Pronounced boo-lay. Hilarious!

Amazingly, my usually sleepy boy made it through the WHOLE day full of long car rides with No nap! Even with the lack of sleep they had the BEST attitudes all day long! Hannah and Noah finally passed out around 9 pm. It might be a little tough getting up for church in the morning!
