Hurried home from Monterey, took a red-eye to Baltimore,
and spent the weekend with Justin.

Started at Ft McHenry...birthplace of the National Anthem and the flag.

Did I mention we were kid-free?!
We were, thanks to my parents.

While we were checking out flags, they visited our local skate park.

Back to us.
Baltimore has a cool downtown.
Visited the Inner Harbor for shopping, eating, and ship touring.
And porthole peek-a-boo.

Sleeping quarters on the USS Constellation

They continued their fun with fudge pops

and a beach bonfire.
Apparently Mom wasn't so sure about Drew's sand pizza.

We went to a movie!
That never happens.
Saw "X-Men" with no expectations and really liked it.

Next day was spent in DC.
Visited lots and lots of museums.
We'd been there before so we just kind of skimmed a bunch of them.

Sunday included church, lots of HGTV, and some downtown exploring.

We climbed Federal Hill for an awesome view.
Sally discovered the color slide tool and took over editing duties.

Then I flew back home Monday morning (Justin got back today).

Loved it there and loved a little break.
Traveling without kids is so nice...and slightly addicting.

Before Mom & Dad were on their way home, we had to have Point Loma fish & chips.
Sally had me write multiple lists of things she wanted to do with Grandma & Grandpa.
And they did it ALL.

They are some lucky kids.

We are, too.

Super grateful for an awesome weekend away and that our kids didn't miss us at all.

Krissie said...

I'm so glad everyone had fun! I'm glad you liked X-Men as well. Where do you get fish & chips in Point Loma? That sounds so yummy!

Dasha said...

That is so nice. So how much editing do you do?

I'm so glad that you got to get away without your kids! It sounds so fun and its so great that your kids got to spend some good time with their grandparents. It was fun to see you here. I hope you can get back soon. Maybe we'll make our way down there at some point. We're thinking of Disney but I don't want to go when its hot. Maybe in November if we're still in Cali.
