Trainer for a Day!

Today Kirsten's Brownie troop went on a very exciting trip to the Clearwater Aquarium. The girls got to be animal trainers for the day. They had such a great time!

Kirsten and Kalee were very excited.

The girls learned about turtles, otters, and dolphins. They studies the anatomy of the animals and then got to interact with each of them. The playful otters were happy to show off for their snacks!

The huge excitement of the day was when the girls got to train the dolphins. They each got to feed and pet a dolphin! (I was quite jealous.)

The dolphin said thank you with a HUGE splash!

It was really fun to see Winter the dolphin. Winter is the only living dolphin with a prosthetic tail. Winter was injured by a fishing line and has made an amazing recovery at the Clearwater Aquarium... very cool.

I did not realize we are so close to one another. We love going to the Clearwater Aquarium, it's been awhile though.
