Monday morning we headed out to the Newport Aquarium. It was a first for all of us.
The boys were amazed my the sharks and I have to admit, I was too. Although, being in the shark tunnel looking up to a shark above your head can be a little creepy.
I don't know if you can see that back there behind the glass, but that is Mighty Mike, a giant, giant alligator.
This is how Cooper and Cameron would measure up to Mighty Mike. Couldn't even get him in the while picture.
Love these next two.
I touched a shark but Cooper didn't get the courage up to do it. They were swimming toward the bottom of the tank so I think he might have been scared to lean over too much.
The aquarium was a little smaller than I had expected. I don't know if I will make that drive just for the aquarium only. Don't get me wrong, we had fun, it was something new and we spent the day as a family. I was just surprised at how quickly we got done. I did like the sharks though :)
Since we were done so early we took the scenic route home and drove through Madison. Madison has so much character and I love little towns like that.
It was a good day and I've enjoyed the freedom of not having a real schedule this week.
