Happy 4th of July!

It's a busy travel week nationwide and we are thankful for everyone who chooses to visit the Tennessee Aquarium. It's fun to hear some of your stories about traveling to Chattanooga. Here's one sent in by Mary from Texas: We came to Tennessee to visit family. We lived in Tennessee in 2005. We moved before the construction on the new aquarium was finished. We were very excited to come back for a visit and see the new exhibits. We thought that the penguin exhibit was incredible. This was the first time any of us had ever had the chance to see penguins. My daughter Hope, who just turned 3, could have stayed with the penguins for the entire day. She loved that she was able to stand right at their level. The penguins seemed to be aware of their visitors and acted as if they were playing with the kids at the glass wall. That allowed my daughter to feel as if she was interacting with them. The penguins felt as if they were close enough to touch. My daughters Faith and Hope have not been able to stop talking about the penguins. Thanks for the great picture and sharing your story Mary. Happy 4th of July everyone!

I enjoying watching the Penguin cam so much! Many days at work, I keep it up on my desktop so I can keep up with the daily activities. I especially enjoy the interactions between the keepers and the penguins. I can't wait to see them in person. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us and for what you do for these beautiful little creatures.
