Weekend in Dallas

This last weekend Kevin and I headed down to Dallas to check thing out and look at what areas we might want to live in. Since we wont really need to find a place until October, when our temp housing ends, we decided to take Saturday and play. That morning we went to the aquarium for a couple hours and then off to Ripley's Believe It Or Not and Wax museum.
When you first walk in you walk into this huge jungle like room. It has like 4 levels and as you walk through it you slowly make your way down to the aquarium below.
The birds would just fly around freely. This one actually almost hit Kevin in the head. There was a bird right next to him but as I was getting ready to take the picture this one came and land on his head but found the branch instead.
Some of the fish we saw we couldn't really believe. This one is called a leafy seahorse. When they swim by the seaweed you can hardly tell the difference.
They had a walk through under the shark tank. The saw sharks would just sit on the top of the walk through. It's hard to tell in the picture but their month look just like human lips but flattened out.
I can't remember the last time I went to the aquarium but we had a blast and couldn't help but think about how much fun it will be to take our child there.
