      Thanks – I love that skirt. I bought it a long time ago, but I hadn’t been able to fit into it for several years. I was so glad to be able to wear it again!

      That was the only thing we didn’t see. Maybe when E is a little older…

    Just a curious question: which way are you counting for the 30 before 30? Does #28 item on the list mean you are almost finished? Or just started (with a long way to count down to zero)?

    I just took my 1 year old (14 months) to the Moat aquarium near Long Boat Key when we were on vacation last week- He LOVED it. I was in heaven because he was so into the fish and the turtles and the sharks. I can’t wait to take him to the Shedd- I lived in the city for six years and still haven’t been there! I can’t wait to take him– did Eleanor like it?

    You look so chic for the aquarium! I’m wondering what you would wear on a plane? I’m picturing something very Grace Kelly!

    We were there on Sunday! So much fun! Had to bribe my kid out of that gift store at the end though, that place is kid heaven. Did you buy Eleanor any cute shirts?

      No shirts, but Brandon did pick out a stuffed turtle for her. And an octopus.
