Vacation, Part 3: Sea Turtle Center

The Georgia Sea Turtle Center is located on Jekyll so we decided to spend one afternoon and take the boys to see it. We visited the museum, which was very well done and had lots of hands-on activities for the kids, and also the turtle hospital. At the hospital we got to see two of the turtles being fed and lots of others swimming around in their tanks. Right before we left we saw one of the turtles being operated on. The boys loved it all. I think we'll try to do one of the "turtle walks" next time to learn more about their nests and try to see some of the new hatchlings.
 Malachi was very interested in all the hands-on activities at the museum.

 I think both of their expressions are really funny here!
