My kids like to spend one day during the summer doing something only with each other. My girls are always so busy with life, and when we're always up in Annandale, it's hard to bring all 4 kids together. This year, they decided to head to the Mall of America, and walk through the Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium. The kids were so excited when Sea Life agree to partner with me for my blog with a review!
For me, I know going to the MOA is about the experience. It's been quite a few years since I've been to Sea Life Aquarium myself, but what I remember about going is how magical it was. The kids were younger, and they loved it so much.
So from the youngest this is what he had to say about the aquarium. There was a mini aquarium when you first walk. He touched star fish and anemones. He also saw a fish called a guitar fish. They weren't able to touch the sting rays because they were having babies. He said there were mirrors by the jelly fish tubes, and he kept running into them. Awww to have seen that!
His favorite part was the tunnel. There were sharks (nurse & tiger), turtles, and a variety of fish. After the tunnel there were alligators and poison dart frogs, and who doesn't love seeing those? He said there were cicadas, but they were so annoying. lol
He also said as you walked around there were spots where you could learn about the creatures they were looking at. The aquarium isn't huge so you're able to see it with plenty of time to do other things at the mall. At one point he texted me that a shark had just swam over him. That was pretty noteworthy if he's texting me!
Here's what my oldest girl had to say about her time with her siblings and Sea Life:
And last we have my 2nd daughter's perspective on spending time at the Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium for sibling day. She's a young lady of very few words. HA!
The Sea Life aquarium is a fun place to go with family! My favorite part was the tunnel where we had all sorts of sea creatures swimming around us and even over us. We learned a lot, and it was fun to be so close to everything and get a new perspective.
It sounds like they all had a great time hanging out together doing something fun. It means the world to me when they have these experiences together.
Next time we have the opportunity to visit, I'm hoping to try one of their Experiences! They have a Behind the Scenes tour, Snorkel with the Fish, Overnights, and you could even propose or get married there! I think the Behind the Scenes tour would be fantastic. I bet the kids would love to snorkel!
