Man, what a fun weekend! We kicked it off with a trip to Hillwood Estate, the former home of Marjorie Merriweather Post, which is a fascinating art museum and gardens. While it's on a smaller scale than the Smithsonians, it has a really quirky and interesting collection of items. It was raining so we skipped perusing the gardens. However, stepping into the greenhouse was like taking a trip to an exotic land--the orchids and other plants were just bursting with color.
Shabbat was spent in a pretty low key fashion, except for the very rousing series of Bananagram games. We played 4, and Mom, Aunt Gina and Ron each won one (I don't recall who won the 4th). I wish I could say I was throwing the games to let our guests win, but yeah, I'm just too slow. Still, it was lots of fun.
Yesterday we hit up an Orioles Game. While they are a rival of our home team (Go Nats!), we couldn't help be be impressed by the game. There were back to back home runs, and even a grand slam on a 3-2 count. The A's never had a chance. Shira got us amazing seats which put me in the perfect position to snap tons of photos. Oh, and the Kosher food offered at the ballpark was quite yummy.
