Houston Downtown Aquarium

Next on the list of field trips was the Downtown Aquarium.  The kids got to take a class there, where they learned about carnivores and got to touch a couple of animals.  After touring the aquarium and riding a little train around the park and through the shark building, everyone got to go on all the rides.  No lines, which meant lots of turns.  Another perk of going with a homeschool group, everyone else is at school!  :o)

The train went through a tunnel that went through the shark tank.  It was quite impressive!

My kind of ride!
