Early birthday fun

Ammon chose to go to the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay for his birthday (since we had 2 free kid passes from the library). Brady had to work yesterday and today, so we decided to go after school on Thursday since we didn't have any other plans. The boys loved it. Zenock was really freaked out by the crocodile because he was right up against the glass, but once we got past that part he was fine. We saw a couple of sea turtles...they are HUGE! We pet some rays and horseshoe crabs, saw a really cool octopus, some parrot fish, a really big puffer fish, some huge starfish, and many sharks. It was really fun to take the kids.

There was a glass bottom section of the floor. Ammon was waiting for a shark to swim under there. Eventually he saw the ray shark and some fish. Zenock was really nervous to walk on it at first until Ammon showed him how fun it was. Then they started having races across it.

More evidence that I need a new camera. This picture hardly does the turtle justice.
