Sharing thanks for finding heart in Ellicott City in Maryland

Heart in a stream in Ellicott City, Maryland
So thankful to have a wonderful small family vacation in Maryland! It is rejuvenating to be able to go away and spend some quality time with my family. Baltimore has some family history as it is a place we used to gather to visit Spencer's Aunt Mary when she was alive. We would enjoy staying in her old Baltimore townhouse and having crabfest's at her kitchen table covered with newspapers. Here is what I was thankful for.
  1. Thanks for a fun morning in Ellicott City, Maryland. Enjoyed meandering through this charming historical town, with its artsy shops! Loved seeing this heart in the stream from the bridge near the railroad station. It was such a lovely surprise!
  2. Thanks for a fun night out at the ballpark at Camden Yards. We saw many home runs and the Orioles won 7-1. Enjoyed the cool breezes at the stadium on Friday night and the energy of the crowd cheering for the O's.
  3. Thanks to have a memorable crabfest at Captain James Landing. The view is pretty, although we got to enjoy our crabs during the middle of a torrential rain storm and some thunder and lightning. After the storm a beautiful pink sky emerged. The crabs were tasty! 
  4. I am grateful for all the old fashioned family fun we had! Playing cards. Just enjoying spending some time together. I also loved the Baltimore art museum which was FREE!!! Loved the Rodin sculptures I saw and the Cone collection.
I invite you to share a vacation memory you had over the summer!
