National Aquarium - Baltimore

Several weeks ago I (Suzy) made a trip with Tenny and Tait and my friend and her kids to the National Aquarium in Baltimore.  Inside the aquarium was difficult to photograph because the lighting was kept very dark to feature the illuminated fish tanks so most of my photographs did not turn out.  But below are some that worked.  It was such a delightful day.  Tennyson was in total wonderment the whole time and I was surprised at how much even Tait got out of the experience.  Growing up in DC has given Tennyson an affinity for ocean life that I never had growing up in the desert.  He has visited more aquariums and beaches in his 4 years than I ever did my entire childhood.  I guess you could say we are discovering the ocean for the first time together.

Sharks!


In the Amazon . . .


Me, trying to be artistic.  Did I succeed?


Dolphins really are magical.  Did you know?


The boys loved watching the dolphins perform their tricks.


Taiters was bright-eyed the whole time.


The kids were super cute together.


We love the Baltimore Harbor, and this is definitely one of the highlights.  Tenny wants to go back - wanna join?
