Synagis and the Aquarium

Fun Fact: when my brother and I were little, my mom used to joke that she would have to claim the stingrays at Sea World as dependents on her taxes--that's how much money we would spend on fish to feed them. True story. I love stingrays. Don't know why.

Dakin got to experience some stingrays up close, though not necessarily personal. On Wednesday we had to go to Dallas to get Dakin's first Synagis shot, so we decided to do something fun as well. We went to the Children's Aquarium at Fair Park--a nice little aquarium with all kinds of fish (no, really!!) and, most importantly, stingrays. Dakin's favorite part was this big shark tank. There was even a little pond where you can put your hands in and touch the stingrays. We got Dakin as close as we could to the side of the pond (the walls were clear, thankfully), and I stuck my hand in to get their attention. Thinking that my wiggling fingers were fish, they came over and said hi.


OK, and look at this shirt--"This is how I roll." Hilarious, right? So perfect!
