The Florida Aquarium is awesome!

We had an incredible time yesterday at the Florida Aquarium in St. Pete. It was Homeschool Day there so the admission was only $3.00! It's regularly $17.95 for adults & $13.95 for children!! We saw SO many species of fish, coral, etc etc. IT WAS TRULY TRULY AMAZING. We went at a slow pace so the kids could just see everything they wanted to. It was great watching their excitement over seeing this or that. :) After going through the main areas the children played in this outdoor water play area thingy. It's like a big playground of a ship but with water everywhere shooting out, etc. It was SO much fun! My friend has the pics on her camera, so I will get them on here just as soon as I can. (I am still boggled at this INCREDIBLE fish that I's UNBELIEVABLE! I can't think of the name but I will post the pic soon. I cannot believe it's a fish!).

We got a new car the other night. I'm really excited about it. The Saturn has been such a blessing to us but it's nice to have something newer and with some bells and whistles. I am totally lost looking for the buttons for the windows and locks though! lol. But I really love it. It's a Jeep Liberty. And it's green...which I love! It reminds me so much of my Xterra (and as most of you know I HATED getting rid of that!! That was the best vehicle we've ever owned!) but this is SO much more affordable than my Xterra.

We will have a busy rest of the month as far as field trips go. Next Friday we are going to Cypress Gardens ($5.00 Fridays for the rest of September if anyone wants to go with us!!) And then that following Monday the 29th we are heading to St. Augustine for Homeschool Day at The Old Florida Museum. I am really excited about that!
