Since we had to go back to Maryland for Alice's appointment we wanted to make a mini vacation out of it and decided to go to Baltimore and check out the Inner Harbor and the Aquarium. It had been years since Jason and I had been there and my mom came with us too! Cassidy and Trevor loved the aquarium, especially the dolphins. The rain forest area and the dolphins also caught Alice's eye. She fell asleep through most of it though. It was nice to do something as a family and have some fun after all the stress and worry we have been through. We have been completely consumed since getting Alice's diagnosis and we haven't been able to do much with the two older kids on their summer vacation. So we really enjoyed having some quality time with them. It's hard to believe that Alice is officially 6 months old now, my how the time has flown by!!

I am so glad that my mom was with us when we went to the post op and she was able to meet Dr Magge. My mom and dad were unable to be there for Alice's surgery since they were caring for our other two children but we were so grateful that my mother in law and her friend were able to be there for Alice's surgery. They traveled from NY to be there for us.
