Beach day!

We had been planning this beach trip since the end of March, so when the time finally came we were super excited. Our original plan was to go for the weekend, but even in March no hotels had any openings so it became a day trip. But when we arrived at the beach it was super crowded, like more so than normal (apparently there was some kind of big event going on this weekend... just our luck). So, instead of spending the day at Ocean City like we had planned to do, we drove for 4 1/2 hours just to spend 30 minutes at a different beach (Fenwick Island State Park), in a whole different state because instead of the 90 degree weather we were planning on, it was actually 60 degrees and super windy. 
Not all adventures end well. This one didn't. But at least we know what to do next time.

Mother's Day 2017

The weather was perfect, so it was a spend it outside kind of day for Mother's Day this year. Started out at Catoctin Creek Park where we found a little hideaway... Pebble Beach.

After Catoctin Creek Park we headed to a new park that we hadn't been to yet, Gathland State Park. (One thing I love about the parks here in Maryland is that they have so much history to them. Like every 4 out of 5 that we go to has some pretty interesting background stories.) 

Once we were done exploring Gathland State Park, we headed to Washington Monument State Park to enjoy the view of the sunset before heading to downtown Frederick for a little bit of walking around before heading home for the night.
