I originally had a round trip flight booked (can you already see where this is going??) for the weekend, a quick hop in and a quick hop back out. Then Sarah (Terry's boss) found out that she was being promoted and relocated to Frederick....the same weekend as the wedding. One cancelled one-way flight, and I was now road-tripping to Maryland in an overnight 13-hr haul. Surprisingly, it didn't feel like 13 hours whatsoever. We split the drive with the passenger seat as the makeshift bed.
I still picked up my rental car in Baltimore, and then was off to get the day going. There was Rachels wedding Saturday afternoon, then I headed down to DC to hang out with friends.
David and Meghan (and apparently greasy Lindsey... I swear I took a shower!) Hey David...that shirt looks familiar...
Ward drove down to hang out! Yay for friends you haven't seen in a while!
And Yay for friends you get to see all the time even though we live so far apart!
I somehow managed to pull myself together and we went out around Old Town Alexandria. One glass of wine at her house and I could have been out for the count, but instead I got to watch (and attempt to keep my eyes open) while these two played.
Love that hair color!
Probably embarrassed by something Ward did.
I got amazing sleep Saturday night, and woke up relatively early to head to Delaware; yes, I drove from St Louis to Maryland to DC to Delaware and then back to Baltimore for my 6am flight Monday morning. I'm
I pulled in to my brothers house just before 1pm, and it was non-stop nieces until bedtime. It was glorious. I love those little (and now not so little) girls so much!
Chloe in her Eagles gear!
We made a leaf pile...
and got leaves stuck in places I didn't think leaves could find their way to!
Jenna looking beautiful!
This trip Chloe and I had a great time playing. It usually takes her a little while to warm up, but within 2 minutes of walking in the door, we were running around playing games. Too cute!
Amazing quick trip. I will squeeze in time with friends and family any time that I can! Well WELL worth the exhaustion!
