One of the mornings when Marc left for meetings, Mariah and I headed out in search of something to eat for breakfast. We found this cute little French crepe place on the harbor. They were fabulous and we were stuffed!
Tomatoes, cheese and avocado!!!
Back at the bus stop. While we were standing there a "bum" walked up. Most people in the city just turn and act like they aren't there. The man mumbled something and Mariah said, "Sir?" He looked so shocked that she responded and he perked up and said, "It's cold today, isn't it?" She said, "Yes sir, it is." She went on to talk to him another minute about her boots that she was wearing. It was so sweet. and I was so thankful that my child didn't think she was better than another human being or fearful of talking to him.
Headed to Ft. McHenry... one of my favorite things that we saw.
An elementary school named after Francis Scott Key! :)
It was so much fun running around with this girl all week! I have so many good memories and I hope she always does too.
We visited the museum and it was so good!
This is one of the coolest things we saw! The original manuscript when Francis wrote our national anthem! Surreal to see it! Really neat to see where he crossed some of the words out and changed them.
Prison cells and bomb shelters.
She was mortified that I asked to take her picture with this union "soldier". :) Gotta' love thirteen year olds!
The prisoner of war holding cells were really tiny!
Just the neatest thing to stand there and look out over the water and think about that night.
She was "sweet" on General Armistead. :)
Getting down to some serious work!
Another late night dinner on the harbor! We ate a lot of yummy food after walking for miles every day!
A relaxing night swim at the hotel.
I have so many pictures to share! I guess that is it for tonight!
