mini-vacay day one

we woke up this morning and the excitement was palpable.....today was the day! we started with a breakfast of eggs and baked german pancakes. oh, those pancakes. that's for another post. yum! we loaded up the van and were headed north to tulsa.
thanks to the wonderful suggestions of friends we stopped first at the jenks oklahoma aquarium. we're so glad we did.
first stop....feeding the turtles. we just approached the tank with the poles and they swarmed!
noah in the shark cage ready to be submerged. (not really, but they did have a huge collection of very real sharks)
lots of stuff at kid-level
we left campus for lunch and a little frozen yogurt

we returned to the aquarium in time to touch the mini sharks and stingrays. ari could've stayed at that exhibit all day
after dinner we checked into our hotel and found this!
because the indoor pool turned out to be practically a water park this is what momma did
all tuckered out the boys had some game time before bed. can't wait for tomorrow!
