Our trip consisted of eating, seeing old friends, and spending time with family. Ellie visited her first aquarium and befriended some fishies. Much to my disappointment, and in spite of the several books about penguins I've purchased for Ellie, she didn't seem to notice my favorite flightless birds.

In other baby vs animal news, Ellie took interest in the doggie and Grandma and Grandpa's house, but only liked her when she was quiet. Ellie expressed her affection by grabbing the doggie's tail and ears repeatedly, causing the dog to walk away.
