there's no place like home

I went to Maryland a few weeks ago to visit Kaile. It was SOOOOOOOO good to be home. I hadn't been back in 4 years, and I had missed it so much!

We drove past my old house. It has a weird fence on the driveway now with a sign about children at play. They also painted the front door. The garden/grass look awful. It makes me sad. 

Here's some of the trip that was documented. We did other stuff but didn't take pictures woops: 

We drove by Christ Episcopal. This was the best shot I could get. I miss going to school here so much. 

We went on the bumpy road. Childhood mems

We hiked the billy goat trail and went to Great Falls. It brought back so many memories. 

Love me some Juliet. 

One of the days Kaile had a doctors appointment and we drove past this park. This is where I used to go for PE back in the day!

One day we went to the zoo because the Baltimore Aquarium is freaking expensive to get into now. Such a disappointment. At least we had the zoo. More childhood mems even though there were no pandas or giraffes.

Bonnie hehe

The closest we got to the aquarium. I'm not bitter. I'm not bitter.

Pretty friends and zebs

Where are the pandas???


 Kaile loves prairie dogz

After our disappointment in no giraffes or pandas we were looking forward to seeing some wild cats. We get to the exhibit and this girl tells us it's closed for a private dinner thing. We named this event The Great Catsby. The Great Catsby was exclusive and we weren't here for that. We decided to sneak into the exhibit because we HAD to see our cats. When we saw the girl making her rounds we ditched that place fast. We saw our cats and I left completely satisfied.

Juliet fleeing the scene

Drove past this on the way home. Chevy Chase is SOOO cute. I wish I would have used my brain and  had taken more pictures. 

We met up with James and Roy for dinna then went back to Kaile's and watched So You Think You Can Dance. The baseball dance was insaneeeeeee

Our attempted bike ride was hilarious. Squeeky/deflated wheels. We didn't make it far. 

We went to DC on Friday. It was HOT but SO great.

I don't think I've ever been on this side of the White House. 

This picture turned out really awkward with my camera bag. Probably should have set it down. 

Slidin at the Lincoln Memorial

Love my baby friend


On our way back from DC we got caught in the worst thunderstorm I've ever been in. It was freaky. We had to pull over for a while and just wait it out. Thanks Natalie Joy. For the last two days of my trip the power was out. The Knells have a generator thankfully so we ended up being able to watch movies. It was SO hot outside and the AC wasn't working very well so we watched their edited movies in the basement. Shawshank Redemption. So good. We also went out to eat to get some AC. 

This post was a jumble but whatever I am so glad I got to go home!
