Last week, Gracie had her first play date with Sara and baby Olivia at the Albuquerque Aquarium. The girls are 6 weeks apart which is awesome because Sara and I have been BF’s for more than 20 years and it’s great to know that our little girls are going to grow up together too. We invited our moms to the outing and they had a great time watching our little ones discover and learn about what goes on under the sea!
Over the past 6 weeks, I’ve learned that play dates can be tricky when they involve newborns. Gracie’s first play date was at the ABQ Zoo and she basically slept the entire time. While it was fun for the grown-ups, I don’t think Grace knew where she was or what was going on, lol! The great thing is that Grace does awesome on our little outings regardless of where we go and she was so much more alert on this adventure. The moment we arrived we did a quick feeding and baby girl was bright eyed and curious for the remainder of the day. We spent a lot of time sitting in front of the big tank that has sharks and tropical fish and she looked absolutely fascinated – we LOVED watching her! If you have a newborn and you’re looking for a fun excuse to get out of the house, visit the aquarium. I promise your baby will love it.
Here’s a few more pictures of our afternoon with the fishies. :)
