Aquarium Adventure

Last week, when we had Max's side of the family in town, we all decided to be adventurous and go to the Dallas Aquarium.  And I do mean adventurous - it's hard to get our act together to take baby anywhere, let alone somewhere as exciting as the aquarium!

William was a trooper! (And I've never needed to carry a purse so big before!)

Everyone's saying hi to the monkeys.

Looking at the sting rays - and Max refuses to smile for a picture ;)

William got tired of the stroller. This is my view of him in his sling!

After the aquarium, we ate a very late lunch at the Spaghetti Warehouse. I would have taken pictures, but I was too busy stuffing my face with pasta alfredo!

All in all, it was worth the hassle to get out there and do something fun! I need to schedule more adventures soon!


  1. Looks like a nice little outing! Hope you get to enjoy more soon. It's surprising how much babies need just to leave the house.

  2. how wonderful! a good adventure to add to the baby book!

  3. That is a fun adventure! So glad you could get out a for a bit!

  4. Good for you!! I remember those first few weeks & how much stuff & energy it would take to go anywhere!! But it's also good for Mom & baby to have a change of scenery. :-)

  5. I'm glad it was worth the hassle. I was basically useless for the first couple of months after I had my daughter. I barely moved and wanted to do nothing but sleep. Now I wish I would've done a bit more when I had the chance.

  6. What a lovely adventure!! I live about 15 minutes from an aquarium but I think the last time I was there I was 5 or 6. I am long over due for an aquarium adventure!
    PS Totally random but: Do you watch that show Life After People? They had an episode on aquariums and which creatures would die first and which could live the longest with out people. It was really interesting!! :)

  7. I LOVED getting out of the house with Emily all the time especially at that age. It's more difficult for me now, but I still try to get out of here at least once a's good for both of us!
