Memorial Day Fun

Baltimore Aquarium
We all went with Elizabeth's Girl Scout Troop to the Baltimore Aquarium.  We saw the Dolphin Show, the Jellyfish Exhibit, the 4-D movie and part of the rest of the aquarium.  5.5 hours is a long day to be shlepping 4 kids around a crowded place, but we all had a great time.  The most interesting for me was the the 4-D movie.  It is like Rocky Horror Picture Show meets Documentary.  The Seats in the Theatre had special effects that you felt, smelt and got sprayed with.  Definitely a fun experience.  
          The Jellyfish were amazing and beautiful.  They took my breath away.  Too bad they are such a pain at the beach. (sorry for the pun)  I could probably watch them float for hours.
Look at all these Jellies.
         I think the kids liked the dolphins the best.  They are a lot of fun to watch, but honestly I'm getting to the point where I've seen enough dolphin shows.  How interesting can it be that the dolphin taps a ball suspended from the ceiling?  Nonetheless it was fun to watch the kids experiencing it for the first time.

Here is one of the Dolphins.  
The kids also had fun hiding between these bubble tubes.
There was also a large tank with rays and sharks and one sea turtle.  The kids liked looking for the sea turtle since he moved around a lot.
