Glub, glub

Kostyn and I ventured to Baltimore today to take in the National Aquarium with my pals Amy and Betsy and their little ones. We definitely had our hands full, with a 1-month-old, a 16-month old, a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old, but it was a lot of fun and I'm so, so thankful to be able to do stuff like this now with people like Bets and Amy.

The only casualty of the day was Kostyn's left shoe, which somehow fell two stories into the tank of giant fish and monstrous stingrays. Luckily a helpful scubadiver was right in the vicinity and scooped it up before it became someone's lunch. Kostyn spent the rest of the day wandering through the exhibits in his stocking feet, and I had a helluva time relaying the story to Chris without sounding like I'd been pulling a Michael Jackson and dangling our precious son over the shark tank when it happened. (I wasn't. Swear!)

Our hands, eyes and minds were pretty preoccupied with keeping track of the kids, so we didn't even get a group shot of our outing. This is the only picture I took inside the aquarium. Not the best but you get the idea. Cute kid, fish.

Shannon and I went there for a date before we got married. That place rocks!

I love it there and can't wait to take Nicky and Sam. So wish I could've been there with you guys. We'll have to plan another group family outing in the near future? State College perhaps????

I don't have any kids to bring in tow, but definitely count me in next time - maybe I can be the designated shoe monitor =)

Robyn said...

I definitely need one of those!

Was this one of Kostyn's new shoes?

Maybe a cousin's trip some time would be fun! Sheila can watch all the shoes and toes and I'll be in charge of all the fingers. We'll make a great team.
