a day off in baltimore

Not one to stay at home on a day off of school I just had to make a plan for President's Day last Monday... And it just so happens I have a mama friend who shares my affinity for doing all the things with the kids and so we hatched this one up together! Toniel has a season pass type thing to the Baltimore Zoo so she got one adult and all the kids in for free (thank you friend!). We had never been and were so impressed! Elephants and giraffes and lions oh my! We spent a good two hours wandering around and counting children's heads before it was time to head to Inner Harbor for a late lunch.

We ate at Tir Na Nog (try pronouncing that one am I right?) and it was so nice and warm out that we had to take advantage of their outdoor dining. Fifty-one degrees in February is a thing to be celebrated. As were those delicious Irish nachos. Mylanta. After lunch we walked around a little bit checking out the boats and enjoying the sun before heading back north and back to reality....
Love me a day off with my kids! And some of their friends!
