Since I adore Turtles and have since I was a girl, I loved the Turtles greeting us to be endearing! So sweet!

We spent the afternoon there recently and had a hard time leaving. The experience was one we'll always cherish. Our boys love sea life. We do, too.

We learned so much and loved taking our time and enjoying our behind the scenes tour of the Aquarium one quiet May Saturday. We LOVE getting featured to "Feed the Turtles" and Dolphin. Here are our boys before the feeding. They were so excited for the feeding.

They also loved the opportunity to touch a Stingray in the water....  The Aquarium is very interactive and the children are so welcome. Each station is large enough to take your time visiting and get photos and enjoy the exhibit.

We loved the large Aquarium.  The Sea Turtles are beautiful! We loved our back stage tour and learning all about the rehabilitation and how the rescue the turtles and saline. 
This aquarium is doing great things. 

My Shark Lover was so happy to see his sharks again! We spent so much time adoring everything and the Aquarium is spacious to do so at a comfortable speed. 

This picture of our guy talking to the sharks will forever be in my heart. I love his connection to wildlife and sea life. 

We were fascinated with these colorful, and almost neon looking Jelly Fish. They were so pretty 
and active. It was incredible to see them in action. Usually, I don't see them when they sting 
me in the Ocean. lol 

Sharks, sharks, sharks.  Amazing. 

We also loved the marshlands. This is a beautiful trail that tis part of the Aquarium. 

Look at the beauty - this reminds me of my homeland of Louisiana.

This is a unique Albino Sea Turtle that the Aquarium is helping preserve. It is beautiful and is

We all were truly intrigued as well. Lots of learning going on behind the scenes here. 
Preparing to Feed the Fish. 

Here are the boys and the Staff Member who was so wonderful. Behind them you can see the big tank and all of the sea life frolicking around. They're hungry. We're waiting on the bell to signal feeding time. :) 

Here are one of my sons and me getting ready to feed the big fish! Yes, we ALL got in on the action. 

Luring the Sea Turtle.... then, the boys feed her. :) So Fun! 

Happy Sea Turtles! We could have stayed all day. We almost did! 

We were pretty mesmerized to be this close to the sharks! :) 

There was a fun interactive for children to Treat the Turtle. They were able to diagnose and nurse the turtle back to health which is something they do well here. My son is taking his turn at the rehabilitation process. He was able to release his Turtle back to the Sea! :)
