Ripley's Aquarium

IMG_0950 Tonight, since the weather was still a little overcast and thunderstorms were rolling through, we decided to take the kids to Ripley's Aquarium. We had a really good time and there was a lot to see. The kids were able to pet sting rays and pick up horse shoe crabs.IMG_0957 IMG_0981We were all impressed with the huge tunnel that we traveled through on a conveyor belt type thing. We saw quite a few shark as well as a huge sea turtle among tons of smaller fish. After the aquarium we walked over to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville but quickly left when we found out it was a 2 1/2 hour wait!  IMG_1013We ended up eating at Cracker Barrel since that it something that we don't have near home. We all were very happy with our dinner and afterwards we stopped by the gift shop and bought tons of candy. Watermelon licorice, gummy worms, and pomegranate jelly belly's to name a few!  IMG_1020 Once we finally made it back to the room Landon thought it would be fun to go float around the lazy river, so we let the two kids do that before finally coming to our room for the night!  Who knows what we'll be doing tomorrow!

We hit the Cracker Barrel every time we're on vacation. I love Cracker Barrel. Margaritaville is awesome too. We have one at Universal City Walk. You can't beat a cheese burger in paradise :-)

What a cool touch tank!!!! I love those!

Time for the Tooth Fairy

So, Harper FINALLY lost his first tooth. It seems that he's a bit later than most kids but I wasn't worried since I've never met...
