On Saturday, Ted had the day off, so we drove to Baltimore for a visit to the children’s museum, Port Discovery. Ellie is a little young yet to really enjoy everything they have to offer, but she still had fun and definitely wore herself (and us!) out.
She loved the sandbox – can’t wait until we can have one in our backyard someday. We somehow managed to leave with only a little sand in her hair and ears.
She also loved the fruit and veggie stand. I shudder to think about how many mouths that stuff has previously been in… it was super realistic, so I can’t say I blame them.
She loved the choo choo, and was completely enamored by the belly dancer they had outside the Egyptian room. She wanted to stand there and stare at her for ages. Hilarious. Also – notice the baby leash? Amazing invention. This place was full of stairs and a zillion kids running around everywhere, so it was really the only way to go.
We had our first trip to Shake Shack in Baltimore too. It was so, so not healthy, but very, very tasty. Shake Shack is mostly a New York thing I believe, but they are starting to expand. Watch out world.
Right across the street was the Baltimore World Trade Center, which allows guests to the top 27th floor for a view of the city. It was really cool, and would be even prettier in the summer I’m sure.
The bay is mostly frozen over, so we didn’t see any boats moving around that day. It was cool to have a birds eye view of the ice chunks.
Ellie was mostly happy to just run around. The viewing area was one of the nicest I’ve seen, with wide open viewing windows on every side of the building.
Eventually someone got pretty tired out. It’s been a really long, slow winter around here, so it was a nice change of pace to get out of town and do something new. We love to explore, so I can’t wait until it starts getting nicer outside!
