On the last day of our weekend at the beach, we went to the NC Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores.
Even though they're getting to be too big, they still like to climb on animal statues for pictures :)
Two sweet girls
The view outside the aquarium is amazing. And the view of aquarium visitors isn't bad either!
Lexie HAD to get her picture taken with the alligators (both statue and alive)! Ever since we moved to North Carolina she has been obsessed with alligators.
Checking out the touch tank and trying to touch the rays.
It's so much fun to be an animal's face or be trapped in the jaws of a shark!
Nick LOVES sharks-- seeing them, reading about them, watching documentaries about them!
Jellies and fishies!!
On our way out of the aquarium Nick spotted the Hurricane Simulator and HAAAAAAD to try it out. We loaded the four big kids into the tube, inserted a couple dollars, and then laughed at them as they endured 80 mile an hour wind. The aquarium was a great way to end our trip to the Crystal Coast!!
