The Florida Aquarium

During our stay on Treasure Island, we ventured into downtown Tampa to find the Florida Aquarium.  Our little ones loved this…especially, Mary.  She is into animal life of all sorts, including aquatic!

  1. Great pictures!
    I grew up not to far away from an aquarium. Well they didnt have that big aquariums and mostly it was coldwaterdishes in them, but I loved to go there as often as I could. It was also very cheap to go in there for children :-)
    Have a great day now!

  2. I love the photos! What a great place to visit! The girls would love it. I too love the one pic of Mary, with her reflection! All are awesome though!!! What a fun day for yall! Hope you are having a great weekend!
    Hugs and Blessings,

  3. Valerie,

    You were in my neck of the woods. We live in Dunedin a small town just north of Clearwater. We love the Florida Aquarium. I'm so glad that you guys had fun. Thanks for commenting on my pregnancy and infant loss post. I'm sorry for your losses as well. It never gets easy. Please make sure you check back tomorrow we are having a quest blogger. Danielle from is going to share her story and ask us for help in getting a birth certificate for her son Wyatt who was only with us for two min.

    I love going to aquariums-they are fascinating, especially the ones you can walk through!

    Have a great evening and Sunday
