But she was great. We got down there around 1pm I want to say, and then went to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. I haven't been there in forever and Spencer has never been to one (I'm more hard rocking then him, OBVIOUSLY), so it was a fun time. Oh yeah, and Audrey had never been to one either.
After all that deliciousness, we headed to the aquarium. Audrey was pretty tired by that point, but she seemed very intrigued by all the animals. The coolest was this shark whose snout looks like a saw. NO LIE. This thing was ridiculous.

We only did a little bit of shopping [I got a much-needed pair of shorts (high-waisted!) and Spencer got a hat] but it was so nice to just walk around down there. THIS was the point where Audrey fell asleep. It worked out pretty well, but I do wish she would have slept in the car. Oh, and I left my wallet in Urban Outfitters for about 15 minutes. THANK GOD Spencer knew where it was and nobody took it. Beyond that, we had a total Seinfeld moment when leaving. We got lost in the parking garage. It was horrible, and I got cranky. Spencer had to start at the top and walk down until he found our car. OH, and it was already $22 to park there for the length of time that we did and then they charged us another $5 I guess because it took us so long to get OUT of the garage. WHAT THE HECK?! We payed just as much for parking as we did for one ticket to the aquarium.
THEN, on LAST Friday, we met up with a buddy from middle school, Miss Amanda Mustard! We hadn't really been in touch much since back in the 8th grade, but it was cool getting together and catching up. Plus, she took a lot of adorrrable pictures of Audrey. In fact, all of the pictures that make up the rest of this post were taken by her!
We went to Dockside Willies (I don't think I will ever be comfortable with that restaurant's name...it's just odd!) and chowed down on pizza and a giiinorrrmousss loaded potato. No, literally, this potato was massive. It was honestly the size of Audrey's head. HUGE.
After that we had to hit up the park to burn off the food. Ok, Amanda and I didn't, but Audrey did some running around while Amanda snapped pics.

But don't worry, as if that other food wasn't enough to fill us up, we headed for some yummy ice cream as well! Peanut butter soft serve is amazing! Audrey seemed to enjoy some, too :)
