Baltimore Pictures

I just realized I haven't had a chance to post pictures from our time in Baltimore! We met up with 2 other families at Port Discovery

I "know" these ladies also from the Trisomy 21 message board, but Miranda also blogs at Sweetest Cheery in an Apple Pie and her daughter, Shaylee, is only a couple of months younger than Kayla.

Julie's daughter Emily just turned 8 on Sunday! We actually met them once before (2 years ago) when we were in MD and it was so nice to see them again! Emily is such a sweetheart; she was like a little mother with the 2 girls and she has such an imagination!

Concentrating on their clay creations

Fun in the ball pit

Shaylee getting in on the fun too!

The girls had the best time in this "diner" serving us "dinner"
Kayla and Emily cooking something up!

Giving Daddy something to eat.

the group shot

Playing "Ring Around The Rosey"

Chilling out on this couch that is outside

I just love this "group hug"!

We're back in St Louis for the night and then heading into OK tomorrow where we'll be for the rest of the week; then finally heading back home! Whew! This has been a long trip, but so much fun!

Yesterday I met 2 other blogging friends (in OH). I haven't had a chance to download my pictures yet, (or post about it!) but if you want a peek at who I met you can check out their posts about our get together at A Penny For Your Thoughts and Gentle Retreat

Tomorrow I hope to get together with someone else as we pass through OK City! It's been so fun meeting so many wonderful people!

Okay - first of all, your daughter's face in that ring around the rosie picture? Priceless!!! How precious. And the three of them hugging, you got some really great shots!

Second - your husband must be a saint, a SAINT, to go on this road trip and do all of this socializing. Mine would have been DONE on day 4. :-) I hope the final leg of your trip goes well and that your return home is safe and uneventful.

Hi there! I found your blog through someone's blogroll via Mommy Talk. I clicked on the name because it is very intriguing. Anywaaaaay, just wanted to say that your daughter is absolutely precious!! What a beautiful smile.

Nisa said...

Yes! I love how Kayla looks in the ring around the rosie picture too! So happy and carefree and beautiful! By the way, it's so nice to see you and Joe and Kayla on other blogs. Everyone looks so happy to meet you and you all look like you're having a good time. Next time, plan a road trip this way!! Nate wants to play with Kayla! love you!

How gorgeous, I looked at the blogs that the folk you had hooked up with had written, I think it is awesome. What great meet ups! Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Awesome pics, glad everyone had a good time

Me said...

Great pictures.....sounds like (and looks like) you guys are having a wonderful vacation.

I have to tell you that Nolan (he's almost 5) was sitting her looking at the pictures with me and when he saw a pic of your DH, he said "Hey, I know him, he lives at my school!" (meaning he works there) LOL. Guess he reminds him of someone.

That looks like so much fun!! I'm a bit jealous you got to meet up with Miranda and Shaylee! You are having quite a big trip - I hope it continues to be a great adventure!!

Sandra said...

I'm so glad you have a laptop with you and can share this with us. And how fun for all of you who have met each other on this trip.

I love all the photos of course but I think my favorite is the group hug. :-)
