Frederick, Take 3

We've been wanting to make a day trip out of Frederick for months. Saturday it was finally meant to be. The weather was perfect. The stores were open. And the games were on.

Chuck and I have been thinking about a pop-up camper or tear-drop trailer for some time. Funny thing is, we haven't been in one since we were little. So we headed north to take a look. This is the kind of shopping our kids can enjoy. They ran in and out of each one happily. They explored each camper/trailer/RV and imagined we lived there. Sadly, Chuck and I learned that these may not be in our future. The new ones all weigh too much, and unless we can find an old one in good shape, well, tent campers we remain. I like decisions made for me.

After this we headed to town to get some lunch and play at a playground. (An aside: Someday my life will not be centered around playgrounds. I am excited for that day.) Then we went to my old boss's college softball game. They were trounced, but we had a good time watching the game. Plus, it was free, so I can get behind that.

Next up was the boys' cousin's birthday party. However, we had some time to kill before it started and chose to kill it at this famous ice cream place, Jimmie Cone. I'm not sure what the hype is. I mean, it was okay, but not special. Sorry, Jimmie Cone. But the boys sure love them some sprinkles.

This face. I can't get enough of this face. Until I actually do get enough, and then I'm completely done with this face and I want it in bed.

Lastly was the birthday party. Good times were had by all. Then a much-too-late bedtime and a much-too-early morning. The end.


  1. Bummer about the trailers but I'm glad you had a fun day!

  2. love the pictures so much! ice cream + kids = always a mess, but always so cute. i like finding "cool" not-your-average playgrounds - but, maybe, someday, it will be nice to not have that as a requirement for trips. :)
