Baltimore Day 1

I'm sorry for being so MIA. I've been down in the dumps having not much to blog about, but the weather this past weekend brought me out of it a bit. AND it's supposed to be in the 50's all week long here in the Tri-State Region!

This past weekend Josh and I took a little mini-vacay to none other than Baltimore, MD. It's not far from where we live, and neither of us had ever spent any time there. Josh found a great deal using Hotwire for a hotel. So on our first day we went to the Aquarium ...

and found Nemo, who knew?

I gave some change to make a change

This poor guy only had three limbs

And forgot that you can't take pictures with flash in a mirror

Saw a dolphin show

Went to a 4-D show. We got squirt with water and poked every chance they got.

Josh was not amused.

Then for dinner, I used yelp for the first time and found a great tapas restaurant. It was so yummy and fun. And they had REALLY yummy sangria. We walked like a bazillion miles to get there because we didn't want to pay for transportation. We also walked out of the first restaurant we went to because it was NOT tapas like Yelp said. Yelp fail. I'd probably say I've never been MORE embarrassed, walking out of a restaurant after already being seated, but we had ONE night, ONE nice dinner to attend, and we weren't about to waste it on a restaurant we didn't want to be at. So, have any of you ever done that? How embarrassed were you on a scale of 1-10??

I'd say we got to know Baltimore pretty well. Let's just say my legs are still sore.
But that's not hard to accomplish.

I'll do Day 2 tomorrow!

I bet you'll still call it the "Tri-state area" when you're 40 .... b/c it seems like a 40 yr old thing to say!
