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!
