The Oklahoma Aquarium
Yesterday we wrapped up our ocean study with a trip to the aquarium. Jack had only been once before and he had just turned three, so he really had no memory of it. When he walked into the main hall, he turned around and gave me this look.
We spotted some real live moonjellies!
Jack was excited to find some alligator snapping turtles. He loves the one at the Oklahoma City Zoo.
The shark and stingray touch tank was fun, too. One of the stingrays loved to have people pet him and would flop up out of the water.
Alice wouldn't put her hand in the water, but she liked looking at the babies in the nursery. She even used one finger like you were supposed to do in the touch tank.
Feeding some shrimp to the stingrays. I thought it was a little weird that you could feed food to the shrimp, but further down the hall, the shrimp became the food!
