When we were visiting family in Florida we went to the Mote Marine Aquarium in Sarasota! Nana held Carter the whole time (we didn’t even need the stroller after all!) and Carter loved looking at everything in the aquarium (just like mommy!). Mote Marine has a regular aquarium and also some rescue animals such as dolphins and sea turtles that they help and then release back into the wild.
Here are Carter and Nana pointing to the fish! Nana pointed out all the fish to Carter and he looked into each tank with interest!
Carter looking at the fish. And yes, I put him in his alligator shirt on purpose since we were going to the aquarium!
Fish faces! This picture took a few tries but they all came out really funny!
They also had a sting ray touch tank but every time he reached in the sting rays were just out of his reach! Nana tried to help him lean in even more but that didn’t really work out either!
My favorite picture of all three of us! We took a little lunch break and then went back into the aquarium.
Carter holding his kids menu, I think he trying to tell us what he wants for lunch.
Back at the aquarium we visited the sea turtles, manatees and lastly the dolphin. Carter loved watching the turtles swim by!
Hello Mr. Turtle!
Carter loved the aquarium, which I was really happy about because I love them, too! On his birthday we are going to bring him to the zoo and hopefully he will love seeing all the animals there just as much!
