#10: Day Trip

Number 10 on our list was to take a day trip somewhere. We were planning on going down to the Oklahoma Aquarium and then coming back home in one day, making that our day trip. But Jeff had meetings in Oklahoma City both Tuesday night & Wednesday morning, so we decided to make it a two day trip instead....but I'm counting it as our day trip. =) So, Wednesday morning, the kids & I headed to Stillwater where we were going to meet Jeff after his meeting. His boss was going to go golfing there & we were going to head over to Tulsa to the aquarium. Well, we had to wait about an hour for Jeff because his meeting ran over, but we made it to the aquarium by 3:00. The kids were very excited about getting out of the was I. =)

My kids' obsession with posing with statues prompted them to run up to this alligator after they spotted it.

Then we were finally in the aquarium!!!!

The kids really liked this big room where you could watch a lot of fish swim around. They even had divers in there feeding the fish & one went up to the boys to have his picture taken with them.
Then we moved on to some of the other exhibits.

They have these touch tanks where the kids got to touch shark eggs, a starfish, and a clam. I thought Lily would not like it, but she wanted to practically jump in there with them!

Then we moved on to the part that the boys were looking forward to the most: touching sharks and stingrays!

After that we moved on to more exhibits!

Then we headed to our hotel. I think the kids were tired since they hitched a ride on the luggage rack.

This hotel had mini golf for free!!

Lily loved golfing! Most of the time she actually hit the ball in the hole (after moving it by the hole that is).

But every once in awhile she would do this:

After swimming in the pool, the kids settled down in their bed to watch a movie and unwind from our busy day.

I will have more pictures of the aquarium tomorrow including pics of the kids feeding the turtles and stingrays!
