Date #2 with #2

Today was Gavin's date at the Baltimore Aquarium.  He had a hard time deciding on the aquarium (that has sharks) or the zoo (that has monkeys) but in the end I think he made the right choice.  On the whole ride up he was quizzing grandma and I all about the different types of sharks and his mouth never stopped moving.  When we got to the aquarium all he wanted to do was go see the sharks, forget about the other fish!  Eventually it was time for our special tour.  We did the Shark Immersion tour which takes you behind the scenes where they prepare the food for the sharks and out onto the catwalk where we got to watch them feed in the sharks and they swam around all around our feet!  Very cool.  We also got to see where they treat them if they're sick and learned about the new black tipped reef sharks and zebra shark that will be arriving in a week or so.  After the tour we did the dolphin show and headed to the all important gift shop for a souvenir.  Even after a day full of walking Gavin wanted to stay longer.  He already can't wait to go back to see the new sharks.  It will be interesting to see how long this shark obsession lasts but I love it!
