Earth Day ATX

The Earth Day celebration in Austin was held at the campus of Huston-Tillotson University on the East side of town.  The campus is situated on a hill that has beautiful sight lines of Austin.  There were butterflies, dinosaurs, bats, bands, performers, food trucks, drinks, and all sorts of fun to be had on a nice cool day in Austin.

San Antonio Aquarium

IMG_5656

This place is relatively small, but full of wonder.  My favorite creatures today were the two free range turtles.  One was “running” laps around the gift shop and the other one was having his way with the kids birthday area.  They were both pretty large and not at all shy when it came to bumping you out of their way if you were caught in their path.  The San Antonio Aquarium also had a Mermaid, Dinosaurs, Lorikeets, Seahorses, Manta Rays, a Pacific Octopus, Jellyfish, and plenty of other cool stuff.  It is a great place to spend an afternoon.
