Our Weekend

 
The huge crowd at the Science and Engineering event sitting and standing behind us


This weekend was full of many things including:
* The arrival of a much anticipated stroller. We left ours at home, and Benton has been needing it. His little legs cannot keep up with all the walking. It received a thumbs up after our weekly trip to the library. We left with fewer books and a spring in our step. The older two remarked that the library seemed much closer this time.
* Reading many new books from the library under mama's quilt while waiting for breakfast
*A chance to see Jamie and Adam speak a bit about one of the kiddo's favorite shows while attending the  USA Science and Engineering Festival
* Finishing the squishy sweater in time to wear it on Saturday while the weather was still cool. I am loving it (both the weather and sweater).
* Racing through walkways under the buildings in our neighborhood. This involved pushing the stroller as fast as possible and letting go. Much fun indeed.
* Everyone wearing lots of hand knits in the cooler weather much to the shock of most of the residents who think it is warming up.
* Exploring the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Sitting in the dolphin splash zone and being oh so disappointed about not getting wet enough. Vowing to go back.
* Walking around Baltimore's Inner Harbor and happening upon a street performer. We sat and watched his show which included juggling, a unicycle and fire.
* Climbing on propellers and iron sculptures while watching people along the harbor
* Grocery shopping at several stores trying to find the right mix while Dave and the kiddos walked to the corner store for snacks
* Talking to Grandma and cousins via FaceTime
* Watching a movie together before bed

    1. A. I think it was the highlight for Eamon and Aine. I was crazy. The three of us sat in the aisle, but we were quite close.
      B. Just look for moon jellies. Their sting is not that bad.

  9. I am so happy that you guys have so much of the East Coast to explore. Washington DC, Maryland, Boston, that whole area is so filled with so much history and so many things to see. Thanks for sharing your adventure. I am living your journey through your eyes. Not as exciting but still wonderful. Keep 'em coming. and have just a wonderful time while you can.
