Ocean Breathes Salty: National Aquarium in Baltimore

It had been a long time since we'd been to the National Aquarium -- since I was about 2 months old.  So we went up this past weekend and met Grammie B in B'More for a little swim with the fishes.  The highlight of the trip was getting to see the sting rays being fed and the dolphin show.  Downsides were the crowds, long line for the jellyfish exhibit (so we never got to see it), and the medium-high meltdowns both Cam and I had.  Oh and its like $20 - $26 a pop to get in and see the dolphin show.  BS.  But keep in mind that you can get a "return" stamp to come back later that day if you need to step out (and, like, deposit your cranky kids somewhere so you can actually see some stuff).  We suggest visiting on a weekday.  The aquarium does have "dollar days," but a regular weekend day was so packed, I can't imagine what it's like on a bargain day.  Keep in mind that you cannot bring strollers (but you can check them).  There is also a Children's Gallery, which we whizzed by on our way out the door.  We'll keep our eyes open for a Living Social deal, but likely won't spring the dough to go back any time soon.
