I hadn't realized we were only 20 minutes from the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island. I was relieved when Chris suggested it on Wednesday morning because I was just not up for another day at the beach!
Abigail was trying to wake up her sister...
The aquarium was wonderful! I hadn't been to one since our honeymoon to Charleston nearly 8 years ago. There was plenty to see and the girls were very interested in everything.
It is nearly impossible to get both girls looking at the same time!
We didn't have enough room for the Stokke, luckily there were plenty things low enough for Miss Abigail to look at!
Our brave one :) Audrey didn't care to be so close, lol.
They had a cool interactive section where kids could be scientists & rescue a sea turtle. A little too old for Audrey, but a very cool exhibit!
OMG- my favorite part was the insanely large shark tank. The main room was packed with people so we hung out in the smaller room where it was less crowded and still got great views of the sharks. Freaked Audrey out.
We visited the gift shop where I got Audrey a t-shirt. We ate some snacks outside and then headed back to the hotel so Abigail could nap. I went to the pool again and had it all to myself. When Abby woke up we all spent a couple hours there and then got ready for dinner. We decided to go to Kill Devil Grill (on a good friend's recommendation!) We had a short wait but it was worth it. I fell in love with their wings...Chris even game Abby some (which she loved!) We went for a walk on the beach afterwards.
This video of Chris and Abby cracks me up :)
She can be so uncooperative sometimes :)
When we got home we did our usual routine...bedtime (and SHOWER!) for Abby, then drinks and dolphin watching. It was a great way to spend one of our our final nights :)
