Friday John got home before noon, and since it was Friday we discussed going "away" for the night. Somewhere not too far that would be fun to spend the night. My first thought was Historic Williamsburg. Then I thought it would be more fun to go somewhere closer so I suggested Baltimore to John who apparently was thinking Baltimore too. John got a good price on the Hyatt Regency in the Inner Harbor area of downtown Baltimore. We took off before 1:00 and were unpleasantly surprised to run into a thunderstorm on the way there. It got pretty bad at some points. This picture doesn't really do it justice.
Before we left we made a reservation for Friday afternoon at the Baltimore Aquarium. We scheduled a Dolphin show at 3:30, a 4-D show at 4:15, and then after that we could go do the rest of the aquarium. The Dolphin show was great. Malachi really enjoyed it!
After the Dolphin show we headed over to the 4-D show. Basically that's a 3-D movie with physical involvment: water spraying in your face, a poker in your back, a "snake like" tube on the floor, bubbles, and snow. Unfortunately Malachi really didn't enjoy the physical aspect of the show, so we had to leave. We thought it would be really fun for him, but we were wrong. Here's Malachi with his 3-D glasses on. They're a little different then I remember them.
After that we had dinner at a restaurant that I really didn't like. I'm not going to put up a picture or devote any more time to it than this.
The next morning we got up, decided on breakfast at the hotel restaurant which was pretty good, expensive, but good. We didn't know if it was going to rain or not (rain was in the forecast) so we decided to stay in doors and go to the Children's Museum. We had a lot of fun there! Malachi really enjoyed it and was sad when we had to leave.
After lunch at McDonald's we started on our trip home. With clear weather on our trip home we got home in one hour and one minute. We really enjoyed our time. Hopefully tomorrow I can get the whole set of pictures up on Facebook.
