We had another fun filled day and enjoyed visiting the Florida Aquarium in Tampa. The kids LOVED seeing the "Fissshhhhhhh". And we enjoyed spending a day in the A/C and out of the 94 degree heat! We tried eating at the Cheesecake Factory with the triplets. And...well...it's not such a kid friendly place! We survived, I had one of their amazing Mojitos (or two), and we have cheesecake for tonight. The kids were as good as they could be. I just need to be more assertive and tell the hostess to have the high chairs at the table before we are escorted there. And maybe removing knives, moving tables together, etc, etc. We are learning. Slowly but surely!
It just happens to be my 35th birthday. That sounds old. But this was a much better celebration than the chaos of my 25th birthday on 9/11/01. While remembering all of the people lost in the 9/11 attacks, I feel extra thankful for the friends and family I have in my life. Cheers to another great year!
Here are a few aquarium pictures.
