Change of Scene

After spending too many hours in exam room #10 this week, we decided we all needed a change of scenery. So, on Saturday, we took an overnight to Baltimore to have some fun and hit the aquarium. We stayed at a Hilton Garden Inn in "Harbor East" which is on the recently gentrified side of the Inner Harbor. With a Whole Foods to the left of us and a Starbucks to the right of us, J.D. noticed, "we've arrived in Clarendon!" We rode the water taxi to dinner in Fells Point and back again, after stopping for a new hat for Clay. We let the kids stay up way too late watching an Adam Sandler movie in bed, we saw the Dolphin show, we saw sharks and wonderful birds in the Rain forest, we ate lunch in Little Italy. Monday -- we are exhausted -- but it was worth it.

  1. Mary and JD -

    Diane Tomb recently alerted me to Clay's condition--needless to say, I was shocked. I was of course concerned for that energetic young man I witnessed tackling the Lewes, DE dunes last August with his buddy. But also concerned for both of you and Grace--I cannot imagine the courage and strength needed to handle cancer.

    I have read through most of your posts and believe Clay will whip this cancer. He has two strong parents who are demostrating great courage and optimism.

    Hang in there !
