Saturday morning we headed up to the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks to meet up with the Rogers Family: my cousin Whitney, her husband Jody and their scene-stealing 11 month old, Grant.
Jody got the only group pic on his camera,
so I'll have to beg for a copy to post.
Chris taught Madisyn the license plate state game, so that occupied the car time there and back; I think they spotted 28 with a couple of international plates, too, so it was a pretty successful hunt considering we didn't leave the Sooner State.
Keeping track of The Official List
The Aquarium was totally worth the trip; they have several really cool hands-on exhibits like turtle and sting ray feedings,
all sorts of ancient and enormous Creatures of the Deep,
and the World's Largest Fishing Lure! The Excitement!!
Of course, there was my worst nightmare THE SHARK TUNNEL. I just kept taking pictures and tried to not look around too much.
Entering the Tunnel of Doom
These two look waaaay too excited to be in here.
Look, one is swimming over Emily!
Madisyn recently read a book about sharks and had lots of interesting facts to share; I was just trying to not pass out...or start crying like the three year old in front of us.
When we got back to E-town, we spent the evening eating ice cream and watching TV (Mandy, if you're reading...just kidding about the ice cream part ;) ) and I might have fallen asleep on the sofa way before everyone else. All in all, it was a great day. We have one more morning with Maddy and then have to turn her over to her grandparents; we'll definitely miss having her sweet spirit and enthusiasm around.
