The aquarium is pretty great! They have turtles, sea otters, sharks, and a really great dolphin show! I love that Kayla is able to experience so many things already in her young life. She's already done more than I had done by the time I was 20. :)
|Our little family at the awesome entrance to the Aquarium|
|The kids were so excited to be there!|
|We love turtles!|
|They get so huge!|
|Look at those two! She's looking more and more like Brett.|
|Waiting to feed the sting rays. I fed one and it kind of freaked me out.|
|Me getting ready to feed the sting rays.|
|This is the sweetest photo I've ever seen! They look like they're posing for an engagement or something!|
This underwater viewing room was wonderful! I was able to nurse while watching dolphins
in an airconditioned room. It was awesome.
|She loved the dolphins!|
|Family photo with the dolphins!|
|They had an awesome show with several different birds and animals.|
|Look at the beautiful colors!|
|No, this is not a clip from Finding Nemo! It was fun seeing the two types of fish together.|

|Emily and Noah were so excited for the show to start!|
|So, I was selected to be a judge for the "Dolphin Olympics!"|
|I was getting the run-down of our responsibilities|
|They put on a pretty good show.|
|Lots of cool jumps!|
|The 3rd Judge was a bit harsh and the dolphins got upset!|
|Those dolphins let us know what they thought of us!|
The lady mentioned we would get a bit wet......that was an understatement!
|Yeah, I got really really wet!|
|After I got to join the audience, we got splashed again! The kids were not exactly happy about it.|
|So I got even more wet. And Kayla did too.|
Despite the discomfort that comes with wet clothes, it was really fun and a great show!
|Watching the sting rays|
|We all got to touch this snake.|
|Checking Noah's wingspan!|
|I seriously could watch Dolphins all day long. They're such magnificent creatures.|

|The porcupine was awake during the day just long enough to eat so it|
was cool that we got to see him. His face was really cute!
|This fish kind of creeped me out. It stared at Kayla for awhile. I kept thinking|
that it could eat her if it wanted to!
After the aquarium, we went to visit the Selena memorial. I have loved that movie ever since my high school Spanish teacher showed it to us and since living in the Valley, I've gained an even greater appreciation for her. This wall is featured in the movie when the family dances on it.
|We are sad that she passed away.|
|Emily and I trying to mimic the pose of Selena in her statue.|
