Flicks From the Hill

Apparently, outdoor movies are a big thing in Baltimore. There are lots of them. 
This week we decided to go to one on Federal Hill with our friends the Rosas-Morenas. 

It's sponsored by the Baltimore Visionary Arts Museum so before the movie from 5-9 the museum has free admission. We only got to go inside the museum really quickly but I liked a lot of the pieces that we saw. 

The movie began at 9 o'clock. All the movie watchers sat on the side of Federal Hill and the movie was projected onto the side of the museum. This weeks the movie was The Princess Bride. I forgot how much I like that movie. We had a great time.

How Many Times Can two Grown People go to the Zoo in One Summer?

Let's see... this will make three!

Last Zoo trip was with my Aunt Deena and Uncle Randy and their grandkid Kaiden. 

On this trip we explored "the petting zoo " area of the zoo.

James found a turtle shell and we both decided to get into the hanging bird's nest. 

A couple of weekends ago, James and I went back for our last zoo visit. For Christmas my mom had given us one date a month until July. This month's date was a pair of zoo tickets. It has been VERY hot on the East coast this summer so we didn't stay for more than a couple of hours but we did make time to see my favorite little friend Sampson the baby Elephant. He is so cute.

We had a new fun adventure at the zoo this time around... Camel Rides! 

We had a wonderful time!

Birthday Bash Extravaganza!

The last week of June is a BIG week for birthdays in our family. My little sister Amanda's birthday is on the 25th, my dad's is the next day, and James has a birthday the day after that. To celebrate, my mom set up a very fun weekend in Indiana. My dad and Amanda didn't know we were coming so we surprised them both. Here is a quick run down of the birthday events!
