Longwood Gardens 2011

Our second visit to Longwood Gardens was on a beautiful day no humidity and a nice breeze. I think next time we are going to need to try and get there during the fall, try to see something different.

Zach got very good at the long arm self portraits, I am slowly turning him into a photographer. Mostly I would like to be in the photos occationally.

Maryland Science Museum in Baltimore

For Zach's 30th birthday I surprised him with a weekend trip to inner harbor. We stayed at a hotel a block from the water (which I got a fantastic deal on). We walked everywhere dispite the freezing temperatures, we bundled up and enjoyed the harbor without the thousands of people that are normally there.

The first night we thought we would stop by Cheesecake Factory since I'd never eaten there. We really didn't think we would get a table and were hungry and didn't want to wait hours but there was no wait we got a table right away. It was a fabulous first experience we could see the city and the water and had a fabulous waiter, I can't remember his name, who made sure we got the best on the menu. New favorite Banana Cream Cheesecake, yummmy.
Saturday we headed to the science museum. It took Zach more that a few minutes to realize that there was a whole special exhibit on pirates and buried treasure. But once he did we had a great time going through all the science/space things. We didn't even get sick in the Imax.

Sadly/appropriately this was the only photo of the two of us together.

Making a spark in the kidzone. It's a hurricane tube, you can't tell because his hair is short, mine, it took a good 10 min. to get it back into a presentable state.

We have the power. Little kids where standing around really looking like they wanted to touch it and the parents were all unsure. So Zach and I stepped up and touched it and what do you know it disappeared for a second and then came back. If the museum didn't want you to touch it they would have but glass around it.
