Having a Blast in Baltimore – Part 2

My next stop took me to my friends, Sharon & Chris’ place which is not far from Baltimore. My friend Sharon and her little girl, Kim came and picked me up at Nelli’s. We enjoyed a nice lunch at a cute little coffee shop nearby called Atwaters.

After lunch we made our way to their home for a some playing and then nap time which was enjoyed by both Kim and myself of course. Then once Chris got home he made a delicious fish and chips dinner.

After dinner, the evening turned into project time in helping make some pieces for Kim’s flower girl dress for an upcoming wedding she’s in. We worked on making some flowers…

The finished product, success!

A sweet treat of homemade ice cream made by Chris was enjoyed for a late night snack after doing some flower creating – yum!

The next day we set out for an adventure to a local garden center so Sharon could pick up some flowers, seeds, and vegetables for their garden. IMG_7431

 

Afterwards we enjoyed some more play time with Kim and lunch before Chris got home and we made our way to Ellicott City for dinner…IMG_7433

 

It was fun to see a bit of Ellicott City before dinner time and got to enjoy some time with dear friends while doing some exploring…

Later that night once we got back, Sharon continued to work diligently on Kim’s adorable flower girl dress/tutu. It’s going to be amazing, I can’t wait to see the finished product once it’s done!

Chris made another amazing ice cream while I was visiting – my favorite, chocolate peanut butter! I’m so impressed with his natural ice cream making skills and think he should open an ice cream place. 🙂

The next day we were able to get outside and do some flower planting and pulling weeds in their front flower beds before I left for my next and final stop on my traveling adventures. Kim was quite helpful in helping mommy plant some flowers.

IMG_7474I was so grateful to spend some time with these friends and to “do life” with them from picking out flowers, reading children’s books, playing with blocks, laughing at funny faces and funky dances, to pulling weeds in the flower beds….my heart is full of new memories with these friends as we can look back and remember over 10 years of memories as we look forward to many more.
