wedding weekend in Baltimore

On Thursday after work, Andy and I got in the car and drove north. We hit some construction around Richmond and it took longer than the usual 7 or so hours....we arrived late (2 a.m.!) at my sister and brother-in-law's apartment in Baltimore. My sister Emily and I used to share that apartment years ago, before she and Paul got married, so it was a familiar place to roll into. It was nice to stay with them and we had a good time visiting with them. Emily, Andy, and I had lunch together on Friday and then Em and I ran some errands while Andy went back to the apt. to nap. Emily and I were hosting a bachelorette party for our little sister Katie that night and were making doll cakes for them to decorate. The party was a lot of fun - all her friends met up, went out to dinner at a fun restaurant "Paper Moon Diner" downtown, then we came back to my parent's house to decorate cakes and hang out. Katie and the girls all had a good time and I got lots of time to enjoy holding my niece, Samara! She's gotten so big since I last saw her.

She has the same blue eyes as me

Andy and my brother-in-law, Paul, went to the Orioles game while the girls were partying. They had a great time and Andy decided not to wear his "Yankees Suck" T-shirt to the Yankees/Orioles game....smart move.....

The wedding day was beautiful and the bride was happy. Here is the big group shot:


They had a nice picnic reception at a local park afterwards.


After the wedding reception, I ran downtown to meet some of my friends to celebrate one of my best friend's birthday. It was fun to see them and catch up. Andy went out to dinner with my sister and Paul - I felt bad leaving them, but they get along well and had a good time without me.


It was great to be able to spend Mother's day with my mom and grandmothers. We had a mother's day brunch at my mom's house. Katie and Dan came by before they left for their honeymoon in Florida and we took a few pictures.


4 generations!

Then we had to start back for home. Andy decided to go the scenic route and drive the eastern shore route. It took a little longer, but it was pretty. And he loved the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel
