This past week we took up Chris' Aunt Patrice's offer of staying at her home in Rehobeth Beach, DE! It was short but fun trip, full of a bunch of "first's" for miss Madison. We started the day on Tuesday by hitting the outlets (of course when they are 5 min away you can't say no!). After Madison took a short nap we headed out to Dewey Beach! I will admit I was super nervous about taking her to the beach for the first time, just about how she would do with the sand, what if she ate it? and how she would react to the ocean. Chris and I were both a little more at ease because Aunt Patrice came with us and she has two boys that grew up on the beach! Turns out we had nothing to worry about! Madison LOVED the beach! She even might have gained 2 lbs from all the sand she ate!

Madison liked looking at all the fishes.. maybe when she is bigger she will get one of her own!
After we said goodbye to The Riggin's we headed off to Baltimore to the Aquarium! It was another first for Madison as she had never been to an aquarium but she had fun.. she was very interested in all the colors!

|And yes.. we stopped at Hooters for lunch.|
|Even caught the Dolphin show!|
All in all it was an amazing and fun trip!! We can't wait to go back next summer!!! Thank you to the Riggin's family for taking us in for the few days, we had a blast!!
