a day in birdland...

what a fun day we had!!!! we made our way to baltimore, maryland for a day trip. we took the train to camden off and walked around the harbor. the girls had a blast playing on the open field...daddy had a blast playing in the ESPN zone...mommy had a blast watching my loved ones have fun!

we walked to "little italy" and had some pizza at a little cafe called isabella's. we ate at a table outside and it was perfect! while we were there, madeline pulled a "code brown" & ella had to announce to several passer by's that we were "changing poop"!!!!! she always keeps things comical!!!!! thank goodness they were parents and understood our situation!

we then made our way to the big stadium to watch the orioles play the yankees! that was a GREAT time! the girls got to take their picture with the mascot...ella loved it up close, maddie loved it from a far! i think my children have ingested more junk food in the last 24 hours than they may have been allowed to eat in their entire lives! ella's main objective was to score some cotton candy...the orioles won & ella did too!

it was such a great day getting to explore a place where we had never been...together! it feels good to take advantage of all the fun things we have to do around here...makes the time go by a little faster!!!!!!

ella is so excited about turning four...she wanted me to tell her the story of her birth and madeline's birth last night as we were driving home. i will NEVER grow tired of reliving those precious moments. i smile right now as i think of what that experience was blessed i am to have such an amazing family.

i can't wait for our next day trip...wherever that may be!!
