Aquarium in Denver

Pin It Now! While we were visiting in Colorado, we decided to stay one extra day to visit a local aquarium. Boy am I glad we did! Being able to see such amazingly diverse water creatures up close brought to life everything we've been studying in science this year.

Look at the lips on this guy!! Fish are kind of gross looking to me. And they certainly don't taste good!!

In awe of the beautiful colors under the sea!! Animals resembling plants are cool and creepy at the same time!

All throughout the aquarium you could hear giddy kids screaming, "DORY, DORY!" every single time they'd come across a Blue Tang. Not once did you hear, "Oh, that's a Blue Tang."

To touch and feel the very creatures we've seen only on the pages of our science book was neat. My kids have never been to the beach either to see any of these.

Ooooh, stingrays. They felt sort of velvety/rubbery. It was a bit difficult to pet them since they'd only come up and pause ever so briefly at the surface.

And NO aquarium is complete without this guy, right? I can hear him now, "WELCOME TO BIKINI BOTTOM!" Hahahahahahahaha.

Looks like fun! We enjoyed going to the aquarium in Atlanta last year. By the way, that gross looking fish looks like someone already put him on the grill and burnt him! That's probably why he looks so pouty!

Love the family picture. Y'all look great. I can't believe how big the kids are.


P.S. Shiloh's hair in the curling iron post is beautiful...even if she doesn't think so. She is gorgeous! It's a good thing she has two older brothers so they can help Mark chase off the boys!
