See... Nemo is safe and sound in the Baltimore National Aquarium!!
So let me give you a brief overview of our trip to Maryland and Washington DC. We got to T's aunt and uncle's (I & K) house on Friday afternoon. We just stayed there for the evening, talking and catching up.
On Saturday morning we took the subway into DC. We first went to the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Portrait Gallery. After the gallery, we went out to lunch at a great restaurant called Gordon Biersch (they have the most amazing "garlic fries"). We then walked through the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden. Next, we walked through the National Gallery of Art. Then it was on to the National Archives. After the archives, we went into the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. We were completely spent after all of this... so we made our way to the subway and back to the house.
On Sunday morning we drove into Baltimore and went to the National Aquarium. We had a nice time, walking along the pier before going into the aquarium. We also caught the dolphin show while we were there. All in all... the aquarium was great. T & I like the aquarium in Boston a bit better, but felt that this one was very enjoyable. We had lunch on the pier at the Hard Rock Cafe, then headed back to I & K's house. <>
Monday morning we packed up T's car and headed back to Michigan... we got back to the capitol city in the afternoon. <>
I find it amazing how you can be so excited to go on a trip... but by the time get back, you are even more excited about being HOME!
