We left yesterday afternoon for a little family trip and headed to Newport Aquarium. We left after lunch with my parents hoping Dane would be tired and sleep on the way. He slept for 1 hour and woke up just as we were pulling into the parking garage.
Dane was so excited to see the alligators. He'd been talking about it for several days prior.
Peeking at the alligators through the glass floor. We stayed at this exhibit the longest, he just couldn't get enough.
This is my favorite exhibit. I could've sat there at watched these jelly fish forever.
After the aquarium we headed to our hotel to get checked-in before dinner. Dane was strangly excited about sleeping in a different place. I was nervous that he wouldn't sleep at all! We chose to stay at the Hilton, here is the view from inside. The reason we chose to stay there mostly is because they offered suites at a reasonable price. We set Dane's pack-n-play up in the living quarters with his box fan and pulled the curtains closed. He slept from 9pm till 7am. Too bad Brad or I couldn't sleep at all! The bed was too soft and I couldn't get past the outside noise. Oh,Well. Nothing alittle coffee won't cure.
Speaking of coffee. For breakfast we headed next door to eat at tazza mia. Really yummy food and good Chai Tea Latte's. This place was voted Cincinnati's best coffee. Brad disagreed. The place had great ambiance though.
After breakfast we checked out of the hotel and headed to the The Children's Museum.

Crawling through tunnels.
Playing in the repair shop.
The trip was great. Dane was perfect. Not one tantrum! Could not have been better. I am so blessed.
