Our Staycation

All dressed up for July 4th
Quite by chance, I ended up with 5 days off for July 4th.  Bryon and I decided to take advantage of the time together and took the girls to the Dallas World Aquarium this morning.  Here are the highlights in pictures:

Look!  It's a bird.  It's a plane.  Nope, it's an anteater!

We were so close to the sloth, we could have touched him

Haley and the stingrays

Looking up at the waterfall

Every trip to the aquarium requires a picture just like this

Look!  It's a Sparkle-Nosed Bottle Rocket!

Mom's favorite, the "Man-Eat-Er" (Manatee)


The Spider Crab was HUGE.  All of the Pfaff gals were fascinated.

Shelby demonstrating how the penguins stand

The prettiest colored chameleon ever! 

Shelby's favorite, the "talking" sharks.  I think she's been watching too many cartoons when she thinks sharks talk...

After escaping the gift shop without a single breakage or purchase (Whew!), we had a wonderful lunch at Chuy's, where I had the most delicious frozen watermelon margarita ever.  All in all, it was the best vacation we've had all year!
