Day 2: Downtown Aquarium - Denver

Downtown Aquarium - Denver: We were treated to a day at the aquarium.  The boys had a great time.  I just love this place.  It's definitely worth the money if you've got the time.  We ran into some friends while we were there which made the experience even more fun for the boys.  Then...drama ensued!  At the end of the tour, there's a pool for viewing, petting, and feeding the sting rays.  My father-in-law was bit by one of the sting rays and bleeding pretty good!  He was escorted down to first-aid and his wound attended to by a medic.  Talk about excitement!  Word to the wise (aka - tip)...keep your hand against the wall when feeding the sting rays.  This prevents the sting ray from being able to wrap their body/mouth around your hand to get a better grip. A ton of pics and video on flickr!

Oh, I hope your father-in-law recovers quickly! Glad to see the boys enjoying themselves, I especially like the picture of them in a "fishbowl"
