Aquarium and Kure Beach field trip

Yesterday we finished up our Seashore unit in Science, so we took advantage of a beautiful day and made a trip to Fort Fisher Aquarium. I am so glad we made this trip. After the previous day, we needed a good family day and that's just what we had. We only had one episode of a little one having a bad attitude.The majority of the day was spent laughing and enjoying each other's company.

Fort Fisher Aquarium is awesome. The volunteers there are amazing. So willing to teach and interact with kids. I was very impressed. If you ever get a chance to go, make sure you stay for the dive show. It was definitely a highlight of the day.

I'm not going to say much more, I'll just let the pics speak for themselves.

Touching a sea star.

A very rare Albino Alligator. Only 30-50 of these exist.

LOL. I love the expressions in this photo.

Daddy with his girls. Wondering what in the world is up with the hat my husband is wearing? Go to to find out what he is up to.

Oh how I love these little ladies.

Wow. They really look alike here, aside from the face Shaylie is making.

Oh. My. Word. They are growing up too fast.

Hello Ocean! How I've missed you!!

Every bit as majestic in the winter as it is in the summer.
God- thank You for giving us a home so close to the beach that we can experience the wonder you've created multiple times throughout the year. Amen.

  1. The aquarium is one of our most favorite places! We always buy the yearly membership because we go so much it pays for itself in no time! Glad y'all had a nice day for the beach. I can't wait to get down there this year!
