...in a whirlwind of vacationy things, which is never really a bad way for time to fly by. We had an epic Mexico adventure with some dear friends, which I'll tell you all about, and then I also escaped to the wilderness (without a bat this time, thank goodness - these smart people actually had screens on their windows, God bless them) with the girls for a few days.
And then before I knew it, July was kinda disappearing, too. But at least I told you about nerd school. We'll see if I can get anything else out there.

I just got back from nerd school in Baltimore, and while the majority of each day was consumed with really exciting tax information and avoiding the oppressive heat, I did manage to escape for dinner and a little exploring. You know, as much as you'd want to explore Baltimore. Which for me, was apparently just a little baseball game action when it was within easy reach, so I was glad to take a little more time to discover that there are actually cute things, tasty things, historical things in Baltimore...not just scary things. So I took some phone pics for you (for me, really, but since I'm sharing them and all...), happily enhanced with some Picasa action here and there. Enjoy the brief trip.
|Oh, you know, just some boats hanging out in the inner harbor|
|Look what I found in Baltimore! A little touch of home|
|For reals? Yes, it's for reals, and claims to be America's oldest...|
|A fuzzy shot of the awesome bar at Thames Street Oyster House|
|A million kinds of oysters! I, of course, had none - they kinda gross me out|
|So instead of oysters, I had a really delicious lobster roll with cucumber salad - YUM|
|Hey there, dining at the bar buddies|
|They also talked me into dessert - key lime tart, so good|
|The super old and super cute Broadway Market|
|The National Katyn Memorial, which I knew absolutely nothing about...something about Poland? It just looked kinda cool|
|View of the harbor from my room at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront - hello, water|
|Did you know the world is your oyster? Mo's says so!|
|I was temporarily back in the land of Yuengling...it's a weird place to be|
