Florida Aquarium

Every time we are in Tampa, we visit the Florida Aquarium. The first time we were there, Gabbie was 2.5 and Zachary was 6 months! We still enjoy it now that the kids are older too.

Flashback pictures!

And now – Zachary hates photos!

The aquarium isn’t huge but there is still a lot to see.

The boys decided they were toddlers and played with the stuffed animals for a bit.

The splash pad outside is totally different from when we were last there. It was exciting for Simon but the other kids weren’t so into it.

After all that, there was still time to swim in the hotel pool – a must for any vacation!
