Yesterday, September 10, was homeshcool day at our local aquarium. They allow all homeschoolers to come for the day for free and have several different activities and presentations throughout the day.
We had such a great time. We saw all of the different animals and went to an alligator presentation. My girls did a butterfly craft and we saw them feeding the fish and sharks in the big tank. Right now they also have some animatronic dinosaurs. They make dinosaur noises and move. Two of the dinosaurs spray water at you.
In the next set of pictures, you will see the otter, a snake that had shed his skin, sharks, fish, and a turtle. The turtle is a white (not quite albino) shelled turtle named Nimbus.They found him in his nest on August 11, 2010. You can read more about the story here.
On the way home from the aquarium, we stopped by a local 9/11 memorial.
We had a great time and a great day. We can't wait to go on our next field trip.
