Baltimore

Yesterday we spent the day in Baltimore...my old stomping grounds during college. During college I worked in Baltimore and went to school in Towson which is just a short drive from the city. It was great to be back as a tourist (happy to be visiting then heading to a much more tolerable climate in SoCal). My mom took myself, Shannon and the kids to the Baltimore aquarium. The kids LOVED it! We saw the 4D movie where we wore 3D glasses and felt the whales blow hole spray on our faces, snakes tickled our feet (air puffs and a rubber tube), and our seats vibrated and shook along with parts of the movie. It was so cool! Noah woke up this morning talking about the whale spraying him and has been talking about it non-stop all day. He also loved the sting ray exhibit and the sharks. Jordan however cried like crazy when the dolphin show was over. My mom bought her a dolphin stuffed animal and she hasn't let go of it (or stopped kissing it) since. :) Noah got a rubber sting ray that he has been carrying around with him and taking into the bath. He even told me early this afternoon that he was sticky from lunch so he needed to take a bath...with the sting ray. Funny. :)







The picture here with Shan and Jordan shows the backpack carrier they loaned us at the museum. They check strollers and loan out carriers. It is such a great system.

How fun! I am so glad you guys are having a great trip! I love the part about Jordan kissing her dolphin non-stop and Noah wanting a bath with his sting ray. Hilarious!
