Oh My, Mystic Mermaids!

I forgot to post our evening at the Downtown Aquarium in Denver. We had been trying to decide what to do for our last night in town and we had settled on going to a nice restaurant we’d been wanting to try (and wrestle with the kids to be good) or going to the family night at the aquarium and eat dinner in the onsite restaurant. Gee, which idea do you think won? We obviously didn’t have high expectations for the food there but they have a <a href="Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug” target=”_blank”>mermaid show that occurs during dinner and we figured the kids, especially mermaid-obsessed little Cara would love it. This is <a href="Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug” target=”_blank”>her being Ariel. Click the pic for the video.

The food ended up being pretty good and <a href="Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug” target=”_blank”>the show was fun. Click the pic for the video.

There were a few other small activities for families to do and then we went through the aquarium.

The highlight was, of course, the shark tank

and the <a href="Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug” target=”_blank”>manta rays begging for food and eating it out of Rob’s hand. I’ve never seen them act like this before and it was very odd and kind of creepy! Click the pic for the video.

To cap off the night we let the kids stay up late, went swimming at night in the lit-up pool, and let them choose a treat from the snack bar. All-in-all it was a very enjoyable last night in Denver.
