Downtown and Back at the Farm

We couldn't have had nicer weather yesterday for our visit to Baltimore. Amanda didn't have to work till 3, so she was able to go with us.

The aquarium is undergoing extensive renovations, but at least was open. They don't have an official dolphin show anymore, but we got to see them in training, which was just as good.

The aquarium also has birds. These two sun conures were so pretty together!

We stopped by at Ft. McHenry afterwards. It is so great to see the exhibits and reflect on the events around the writing of the Star Spangled Banner. Mom and I sat on a park bench while the others went through the fort. Look the Star Spangled Banner is waving in the background!

After we got home we went next door to see the horses. Kent held Coco while Lenny hosed her down. She had a little swelling in her hooves. I put the halter on all by myself!

Annette and Kent had a tour of Miss Carol's 230 year old farmhouse. It, also, looks great for its age!

Mom went to bell choir with me. Mickey, who is experienced played all last year and invited Tricia and I to join the choir with her. It is so fun, if not a little scarey! I sometimes ring the wrong bell. But I try to do it in time with the music!

We finished off the day by going out to Salerno's for crabs. It was dollar crab day!

We invited June to come with us. It's nice to have a Baltimore native with us when we're eating crabs. There is a little learning curve!

We celebrated Mom's birthday while we were at Salerno's. It was her first time eating crabs like that, and she only got a couple in the time it took the rest of us to pack away 5 or 6. It wasn't very nice of us to make her go home hungry from her birthday supper. We picked up some Berger cookies on the way home to help fill her up!
