The Aquarium Fieldtrip

Lauren pets a starfish



The starfish



Caleb just has fun splashing in the Starfish' water




An old turtle (Supposedly they live to 150 yrs. old Didn't
have to stretch our imagination for that one!)



Some snakes that had recently shed their skins




Baby alligators




Chris feeding the birds at Lorakeet Landing. The two
birds he had were really fiesty and fought continually over the food.
They ended up spilling most of it. Lauren commented
on the wasted $1. Where does she get that, Grandma?




I decided it looked fun. However, I got an ornory bird that
grabbed the edge of the cup and dumped it
all over the sleeve of my sweater!
Lauren once again commented on another dollar
just wasted.




Lauren and Michael both enjoyed weighing in this sling and
then seeing what kind of shark had the same weight.
To anyone in our area, I highly recommend the Newport Aquarium. We
felt it was a VERY educational experience.
They are running a winter special right now...
2 kids get in free with the purchase of an adult
ticket. (Kids reg. admission is around $12.)
Then they also give each child a coupon
to get a free meal at Bob Evans. Great deal
and lots of fun!

Our boys love any zoo or aquarium we can visit. So far, Connor has begged to bring home a zebra, a giraffe and a chambered nautilus!

Looks like a great place. I love all of the hands-on experiences. Can't beat the "winter deal" either. Wish we were closer!!

Wow - that does look fun. I love the picture of the baby alligators - it looks like they are smiling! :-)

That turtle didn't look very friendly!
