A Day in the Life

                                   Florida Aquarium - Tampa

So our Saturday started out with mommy not getting much sleep the night before. I finally got the baby to sleep about 7am when Savannah woke up. I sent her out to her daddy thinking I could catch another hour of sleep, but between her crying for me and then the baby wanting to eat....I figured it just wasn't meant to be and I got up.

I gathered the troops and got everyone dressed, me showered and we headed out the door to the Florida Aquarium in Tampa. I bought us a family pass last year for Savannah's birthday, so I wanted to get one last use out of it.

I must say the Florida Aquarium is the nicest aquarium I've ever been too (and we have visited quiet a few!). They really have it set up nicely for toddlers and even older babies. Savannah has been able to enjoy it since the time she was 9 months old. It is also small enough that it doesn't take all day. You can do the whole thing in either one morning (i.e. before nap) or one afternoon (i.e. after nap).

They also have a large out door play area. During the summer months, they turn the water on and it is an excellent water play area. It was nice because Savannah played with her daddy while I nursed Atlanta.

Savannah was asleep before we even left the parking lot. Like many other children, she decided that the 45 minute ride home was her nap for the day. So needless to say the rest of our day was spent dealing with a whiny almost 2 year old! I will not bore you with those details!!! However, if you are ever in the Tampa Bay area, the Florida Aquarium is an amazing place to spend time!
