Spring Break Madness Under the Sea

Greetings Everyone, spring break is in full swing deep in the heart of Texas! Kicked it off witha trip to Brazos Bend SP, some more nature study around the neighborhood, a rainy day for recovering from the madness that is spring pollen (frustrating on beautiful days), and of course St Patty's day

Today I played pre-approved hookie from work so I could get in on the fun.

First some breakfast - Pancakes and Bacon!

This was right before Jonah decieded to try and batter his foot!

We headed downtown to the Aquarium Tuesday night, had dinner at the restaraunt, and by the time it was over we had less than an hour before closing time so we decided to bail and come back during the day today.

So did a whole lot of other people, after the shortest line of the day we made it inside for some aquatic fun...

Not sure the suit was designed to hold this much excitement

Full ahead starboard shiver me timbers let's go find a sweet bass!

While waiting in line for the Shark Adventure train (the longest line of the day) a juggler was wandering around.

Logan was spinning the ball on his finger.

Finally got on for our 10 minute train ride after 45 minutes of waiting in line.

Isaac ready for the locomotion to begin.

Heather, Logan, and Jonah excited to finally be on board.

They did park us in a plexiglass tunnel through a shark tank for a couple of minutes, that was the highlight of the trip, although Isaac would tell you it's the humongous mechanical shark that pops out of the lagoon to surprise everyone, and we also enjoyed the tour of the parking lot.

After that it was Sonic for dinner in the clubhouse on the backyard playground - the best dinner we've ever had (on the playground)

Roughhousing seems to be the norm these days...it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt!

Heather made me put up this picture

More adventures planned tomorrow....

Red Beard??? Isn't Harry a little tall to be a leprachaun?

Harry, I like the goatee! Looks like a good time was had by all.

what fun especially the train ride. Glad to see everyone including mom having a good time. Nice facial growth, looks good. Little red color and I always thought they boys got their color from mom

Good to see some fresh pictures. Tell Isaac and Logan (and Jonah if he's ready) I just put up some new "race car" pictures for them.

Given that St Patty's day was only Wednesday what's with all the Leprechaun cracks?

I guess it's me lucky charm because Heather thinks it's magically delicious!
