Caden hits the road

The Tank and I took Caden on a mini-vacation to Baltimore last week. In the past, traveling with Caden has been a nightmare. He has such a hard time sleeping in strange places, adjusting to new environments and particularly new noises, and with his limited diet I have to pack up our kitchen to make sure he doesn't starve. Imagine our surprise that we had a great time!!! We visited the National Aquarium, Port Discovery, Little Italy, Inner Harbor and the Maryland Zoo. Caden slept in a daybed with no problem whatsoever. We were able to eat out at nice restaurants though I still had to bring in food for Caden. I brought a bag of toys to entertain him in the b&b room but we never even opened it. As soon as we got dressed in the mornings, Caden pointed to the door and signed "go". He was ready to explore! Maybe we'll have to get brave and consider something crazy like a beach vacation later this summer.
Excited to see the dolphin show from below the tank

He loved brushing the goats in the petting area of the zoo - they have an amazing Children's Zoo!
