One of our favorite places to go as kids was the Mystic Aquarium. It's one of the best aquariums in New England and it's only five minutes from Nana and Grandpa J's house. I took the kids today to get out of the house, but not go too far because Thing #1 definitely needed to be home for a nap. We had a great (ahem, $60) morning. Max's highlights definitely being feeding the birds and petting the sting rays!
