Road Trip--Oklahoma Aquarium

Hope everyone is well. Physical therapy is going well. Two more visits and then follow-up with the doctor.

Ellena and family are here from Puerto Rico and we are having a great time together. We headed to Jenks, OK on Wednesday afternoon. Ellena and Alex had a good friend from Rogers, AR we met in the evening for dinner. Carlos was a little charmer the whole time. Went to the hotel after dinner, got Andres and Carlos to bed and visited for awhile.

Got up Thursday morning, had breakfast and then headed to the Oklahoma Aquarium. Didn't know Oklahoma had an aquarium like this. Andres, Ellena and Alex upon arrival at the aquarium. Andres was so excited to see the fish. Grandpa and Carlos looking at the fish.

There is so much to see and do at the aquarium. Andres fed the turtles carrots with a clothespin fishing pole. Here he got to pet the stingrays.

Then it was time for the feeding of the sharks. The sharks are in a large tank and you can walk into a tunnel and they will swim above your head. Pretty eerie. Enjoying the fish.
Fun was had by all, including my other daughter, Ashlee and her boyfriend, Dominic.
We had a late lunch at Los Cabos, a Mexican restaurant close to the aquarium, and then headed for home. It was a great adventure and lots of memories were made.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend and stays cool. The temperature today in Oklahoma City was 105 degrees. Enjoy your family and friends always.



  1. Looks like a fun place to take the little ones, and also the big ones. The boys are cute & know you had fun with all. Sharks overhead...would be a little eerie. Guess it was cool inside the aquarium, anyway, hope so. This heat is just toooooo much.

  2. Cute and adorable grandsons! Looks like everyone enjoyed themselves. I may just have to check out the aquariam soon.
