All Summer in 10 Days

So we managed to cram in two road trips to 3 different states in the space of 10 days. You can call it a lack of planning, or you can call it life on the cheap. Money is tight, so flight was out. We ended up going to Baltimore and DC, cramming in (among other things) The National Aquarium, Maryland Science Center, B&O Railroad Museum, WTC Observation Deck, The Mall in the Capitol (and ALL the memorials), Air & Space Museum, and Mount Vernon (there was actually a few more in here as well).

Nic's new hero is George Washington. Mine too, I think.

We just got back from the shore, doing hikes at the County Park in the mornings and the beach in the afternoons. We did rides at the boardwalk one night and had a bonfire roasting marshmallows another. Boys had a blast. I had the recharge I needed--the beach works for me that way.

Taken with all the great stuff that led up to it, I have to say it's been a very, very cool summer.

(Now to do laundry...)
