May 18, 2014 - Tennessee Aquarium & Chattanooga Discovery Center

Ella is looking forward to the aquarium, where we get face-to-face with a box turtle.

Ella really likes the sea horses.

After all that fishing at Big Canoe, we finally see a bunch of rainbow trout!

Jill and Ella touch some small sharks and sting rays.

Ella looks sad on a wall of [fake] penguins.

We all love the Japanese spider crabs.

We head to the Discovery Center, where you can be encased in a bubble.

Els loves it.

Pretty darn cool.

We put our rain jackets on and play in the water.

It is a complex series of tunnels, channels, waterfalls and more.

Ther is a huge area for climbing, too.

we're going to have a tired girl later!

So many areas!
There is a Corvette in front of a toy house.

Like her Lolly, Ella spends a lot of time cleaning and doign laundry.

A music room!

...and a stage!
This place has everything!

She loves the Tesla coil.

We go see the bees and climb a tower, but the end of the day - pretty much as they're closing down - finds Ella stacking cups with some of the student volunteer workers.
Ella is even dressed for it!
