Washington Monument State Park

When a drive around town turns into a spontaneous hike in a small state park that we stumbled upon...

This was the first monument to be dedicated after George Washington. And we were surprised that you could actually go inside and climb a spiraling staircase up to the top for a beautiful view. (But lets be honest, Brandon and I were wusses and didn't last long on top. Haha.)

After we came back down we went around back and found a little courtyard where we could enjoy the view on ground level. It was a little chilly and it was close to sunset so we didn't stay long, but we added this to our list of things to do/explore this summer.

Catoctin Mountain Park

I'm trying to ignore the fact that Brandon is on his way to North Carolina for the weekend right now and that I have to work tonight, so I'm just gonna blog about our fun day from yesterday. Like I should have snuck into his suitcase and tagged along with him for this work trip because...
staying in Maryland because of work < being with Brandon for the weekend

Cafe Rio for lunch. And Catoctin Mountain Park for the afternoon. 

Thurmont Vista. A one mile round trip to a pretty outlook. 

So I was looking through my progress photos tracking my weight loss journey... And wow. December 2016 to April 2017 (P.S. Ignore my pajama shorts that I've had since Jr. High.)
