Toledo Zoo Part 3 – Post #3

Today we are going to explore the aquarium at the Toledo Zoo.  We really enjoyed the aquarium.

One of the coolest parts of the aquarium was the x ray fish.  I don’t have a photograph of them because it was difficult to take a photo.  Hubby talked about that fish for a long while after we saw it.

I also loved the mermaid/ fish scale hallway.  So cool with the reflections of the light.

Enjoy the video.

Next week we will explore more of the zoo.

This blog series is a 9 part series – 4 posts from the Toledo Zoo, 3 from the Newport Aquarium, and 2 from the Boy Scout Camp.

Have a magical day,

Toledo Zoo Part 1 – Post #1

A week before I went to Hershey with the Imaginative One, Hubby and I were childless for almost a week.  We decided to go to the Toledo Zoo which was the last zoo I needed to visit in Ohio.  A couple days later, we visited the Newport Aquarium before heading down to the Boy Scout camp to pick up the boys.

Hotel Fun and Then Fish – Day 2 Part 1

Join me on Saturdays for posts about our South Carolina trip.

Hotel Fun

The boys decided they wanted to form a duck choir while we were in the hotel room.

The boys wanted to pretend they were T-Rexes. They ran around the room with part of their arm in their shirts.

After all the fun at the hotel, we checked out of the hotel and then went to the Greensboro Science Center. The science center had a ropes course, aquarium, children’s museum, and a zoo.

Aquarium

At the front of the aquarium is a sign with a flashing sea creature. It went too fast to get a good photo.

The otters – They had an area where you could climb in and get closer to the otters.

They had a submarine that you could climb into so Hubby and the boys had to climb into it.

They also had a big tank of fish, sharks, and manta rays.

We only did a brief walk through of the aquarium because the boys were going to do the ropes course. They give you a time to do the ropes course. Our time was an hour after we got there.

We had to walk through the atrium on our way to the zoo because the zoo is where the ropes course is located.
