Dolphins at the Mirage

The weekend before Izzy was born we went to see the dolphin habitat at the Mirage.  It is such a cool facility and it was so fun to watch the trainers work with the dolphins.  As a research facility they don't do "shows" with the dolphins, they just bring the trainers out to exercise the dolphins and we all get to watch.  It is really fun.  We even had a trainer who sat and talked with our kids one-on-one at the edge of the pool, teaching them all about dolphins, while she worked with her dolphin.  It was so fun!  Aaron and I actually learned a lot too.  Needless to say, Emery has big plans to be a dolphin trainer someday.  That and Rapunzel at DisneyLand!   It is also the home of Sigfried and Roy's Secret Garden, so we got to see all of the tigers, white tigers, lions, panthers, etc. too.

Em up on dad's shoulders to see the tigers. 

We could have watched this guy prowl around all day.  He was intense!
