We also walked around the pier area to watch the ships and people. The weather was amazing! Papa spotted a Coast Guard ship, which is always a treat for us to see... ahh good ole' times :)
The exhibits were really nice, but we believe we are becoming aquarium (and zoo) snobs. Hard to admit, I know, but we've been to so many that it's hard not to compare. All are a bit different - Shedd/Chicago, Chattanooga, Atlanta, Scripps, New Orleans, Tampa, etc - but many parts are the same. But hey, we just love all things aquatic, so of course we had a great time with the visual bonanza that laid before us in all the beautiful fish!
This coming weekend we are hoping to go see some of Washington D.C. around the National Mall. Hopefully my back will be feeling better ( 4 chiro visits last week and 3 this week, ug). And during this week, we have several playdates. Happy to report we are meeting FS families and enjoying playtime for Ceiba with other kiddos. Plus we had a bbq with Chris's work class, and I've gotten the chance to meet a few DS wives, which has been GREAT (and educational)!
We are enjoying our short time in D.C.!
