This year we took the opportunity during fall break to fly to the East Coast. We flew into Baltimore and visited with Howard's cousin and fiance. They have the most adorable home in Baltimore. It could be on one of the home shows on HGTV.
We ventured north to Pennsylvania and took in the awesome autumn scenery. My niece and her husband graciously put all 5 of us up for a few days. They also have a lovely home that they are renovating one room at a time. My girls took advantage of having horses close by and begged by niece for a horse ride while there. On Sunday, we had a very awesome time. I got to see an aunt and uncle that I have not seen in over 10 years. I also got reintroduced to a cousin or two. We also got to meet some more second cousins. It was such an awesome time.
On Monday, we went to Philadelphia. You need free tickes to see Indepence Hall. When you go there, you can also pick up a booklet for children to complete while visiting the different historical sites of Philadelphia. When they are all done, they take the booklet back to the rangers and they check it and if the children complete most of the areas, they have the opportunityto take the Ranger oath!
Tuesday, I had the opporunity to friends from high school and then we visited with my aunt again and her youngest daughter. She was unable to join us on Sunday . My aunt makes beautiful jewelry, and I hope at some point she will let me feature her
Saturday was the beginning of the big weekend and we headd back to Baltimore for the wedding.
The wedding was fabulous! Everyone had an awesome time. Congratulations Lauren and Scott.
