Fall Break 2010-Uncle Banana in Baltimore

The second part of our trip east was spent in Baltimore with Uncle Banana. He and Aunt B moved to Baltimore in June, so they could both work at Johns Hopkins, Uncle Banana as a internal medicine resident and Aunt B as a nurse, while she finishes her Nurse Practitioner degree. Mommy and I arrived in Baltimore on Saturday afternoon. Uncle Banana showed us around his new neighborhood, which is right by the harbor so we got to see some boats. I didn't really understand why we couldn't ride any of them, something about us not knowing the owner of the boats...bummer! After our walk, we went to "Mathew's Pizza" for is a famous pizza place in Baltimore. After our yummy pizza, Uncle Banana shared mint chocolate chip gelato with me..YES! It was a quick visit, but Mommy and I are so glad we got to see Uncle Banana and where he is living now, although we secretly hope they move closer some day:)

Fall Break 2010

Emme and I and mommy were all on Fall Break last week. Mommy planned a trip for she and I to go out East to visit our friends, the Jordan's in the Washington DC area and then Uncle Banana in Baltimore, MD. Emme stayed home with Daddy for some one-on-one daddy time and because she is going to Baltimore with Bella in November to visit Uncle Banana when he has some time off from his residency.
So, mommy and I rode from Indianapolis to DC with Miss Jasmine and Clara on Wednesday. We spent the day doing girl stuff on Thursday (i.e. checking out the local Target, shopping mall, COSTCO, etc) and then on Friday we drove into! I loved it. I had a great time learning about the monuments, we rode the Carousel at the Smithsonian, saw the White House and took tons of pictures so I can remember everything we saw. Mommy is really impressed with how much I learned and remember about the monuments. She bought me a book with pictures of all the sights we saw, to help me remember. Here are some pics from our day in DC:

Afternoon at the Children's Museum

Mommy, Bella and Mr. Jim took Delanie and I to the Children's Museum after church today. Actually, before we made it to the museum, we ate breakfast/lunch at Einstein Bros. Bagels. Delanie and I have both been begging mom to eat there and since it's one of her favorites too, it's hard for her to say no. So, today from 1p-3p while the rest of Indianapolis was watching the colts, we were at the museum. We did our normal: Egypt exhibit, carousel ride, planetarium, Barbie exhibit...and we also checked out the newly opened "Penguins and Polar Bear" exhibit. My favorite part was the new exhibit, where Delanie and I slid down "ice" like penguins and sat in a Polar Bear's den. Enjoy the pics!
