Maryland Memories

We had a wonderful week in Maryland enjoying being together and the myriad day trips available from good ol' Carroll County.  It sure does feel good to live like a family, and we all look forward to the time when we'll be able to reunite permanently - but for now we'll gratefully take what we can get!
Trip 1 - Cunningham Falls.  This is what I get when I point the camera at Sasha.  And you ask me why I'm exhausted.
But when you can coax a smile out of her, it sure is cute!!!
WanYing enjoys a bit of a hiking cheat (who can blame her?)
Trip 2 - The Maryland Zoo
Yeah, yeah, the animals were great... but can we go on the carrousel again?
WanYing's biggest cheese smile revealed
Trip 3 - The National Aquarium.  It was great hanging out with Aunt Sarah!
Trip 4 - Bowling.  Sasha got all dolled up for this one! It's so hard to decide which part of this outfit is my favorite, but I think I have to go with the black cat Halloween socks.
The best part about bowling in Maryland is that they have duck pins - bowling balls that even WanYing can lift!
My kids have really interesting bowling techniques...
Such grace... with this bowling style, maybe he should try speed skating?
Watching and waiting...
Sasha keeps score - paper scoring, how retro!
Picking peas with Poppop
Oh, and Ben succeeded in finding not 1 but 2 four-leaf clover! Maryland is luck for this kid!
Date night!
Hanging with the Powells
Fun with the fam (the folks you may not recognize are my Aunt and Uncle, Mom's brother)
Last outing - the circus!  WanYing decided that face painting looked fun and she made a very beautiful butterfly indeed
Sash opted to concentrate on cotton candy
Little circuses are so fun!
And a good time was had by all
