A Very Special First Birthday

A&G's actual first birthday fell on President's Day which meant we all had off. We spent the day together and even had a few extra special friends along for a fun filled day. Devin was still visiting and Annette and Suz came in to spend the day with us. We had wanted to take the babies to the Baltimore Aquarium for weeks after we discovered how much they enjoyed the fish at Pet Smart. What better day to make it happen than on their birthday! We started the day off by having lunch out at Houlihan's. The babies got an extra special treat at the end, their very first taste of ice cream.

Yummy Ice Cream!

Avery loves to eat lemons!

Next up, we headed across the street to the Inner Harbor Baltimore Aquarium. Ouch that place has gotten expensive, but it was certainly worth it. We were there just in time to see the puffin feeding. Then we circled around the aquarium and saw lots and lots of fish. Grayson does this new thing where he points at everything. He was pointing his little finger the entire time we were there. Both babies were enamored by all there was to see. We ended our day at the Jelly Fish exhibit. This was definitely Avery's favorite spot. I think she would have stood there forever.

Poor Grayson pooped out at the end of the aquarium tour and couldn't keep his eyes open for our family picture.
We had a very special day with our little ones experiencing new things. Thanks for coming with us Annette and Suz!
Happy, Happy First Birthday Avery & Grayson! We love you both oh so much and cannot believe the difference a year can make! XOXO
