Family Day in Baltimore
We took a day trip to Baltimore this past weekend. Although I yearned to explore the old neighborhoods near the harbor and stake out a charming neighborhood restaurant, we took the boys to the giant Aquarium, ate lunch at Potbelly's and walked through the Inner Harbor. 100 points to Ed and I for being such selfless parents. Grrr.....
This was our first trip to the Aquarium and it was [almost] worth the hefty price of admission. I guess I've been a little spoiled by all of the free museums in DC. Both Noe and Asher genuinely enjoyed the exhibits, and it is a rare day to find something that interests both of them, so that was a good thing. However, the Inner Harbor feels like Times Square, with water. It is still enjoyable, and I'm glad the area wasn't left for ruin....but I was still left scratching my head a bit. It has almost become that the only way we know how to revitalize an area in the US, is to use the Disney model.
