Our Baltimore Favorites :)

I went to bed way too late last night and this morning I'm paying for it. The baseball schedule doesn't quite mix with the Mommy schedule. So here is a bit of randomness of the things we love here in Baltimore....

1. Port Discovery - an awesome children's museum that has many different things to offer. We've been a few times, with friends and as a family. Abby loves the water room and she could spend hours in the mini diner. She had so much fun dancing the last time we were there, in between making us lunch. :)

2. Storyville - A free interactive learning center in the back of a library. It's just like a mini version of Port Discovery. (on a much smaller scale) Abby played in a garden, did some grocery shopping, fed and bathed her baby, and read some books. This place isn't quite as crowded, so it's nice to just let her roam and explore. :)

3. James Joyce Irish Pub - This restaurant is my favorite. Jim and I found this place a few years ago when it was literally right outside our front door. When I was pregnant we should have had "frequent flyer" cards, as I was in there probably every other day. There was something about their potato soup and spicy chicken salad that I just couldn't resist. And still can't ... Thankfully Abby loves the spaghetti, rolls, and potato soup. Now this place has become our family favorite! :)

There is so much to see and do in this city. Time for me to down some caffeine and see what this day will bring. It's supposed to be a HOT one out there! Happy Tuesday!

What a cute post! Funny you posted about the Irish pub, because Chris and I were just talking about it. It's down the street from us, too, and we've been wanting to go. Now we will since you've so highly recommended it! :)

What a fun post. My son would love that place.
The girls are getting so big and are still as cute as can possibly be. I'm glad you guys had a good time :)
