Washington, DC and Baltimore

Kelly gave me tickets to an Orioles game for our anniversary so this past weekend the three of us drove up to Baltimore. We stopped in DC so Maddie could see the Capitol and where all the crazy politicians live.We saw the Orioles play the Chicago White Sox. Madison was given this certificate in honor of her first Orioles game. I first came here in 1992(the year that Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened) with my parents and brothers. My favorite baseball player growing up was Cal Ripken, Jr. He is being inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. The Orioles came back to tie the game in the 9th inning and ended up winning in the 10th (of course we stayed!!)
Madison and Kelly near our seats on the third base side! We moved out to Right field in about the 5th inning. The weather was perfect. The only time Madison cried was when the Orioles' Kevin Millar hit a homerun in the 6th inning-because the crowd went crazy. Two batters later, another Orioles player hit a homerun and this time she smiled!
Madison is waiting for mommy to get ready so we can go eat lunch.Here is Maddie and Kelly eating lunch at the Inner Harbor. If you haven't been--you should!!

May I have a 4x6 photo of Maddie Grace in the yellow dress with 3 fishes. I want to put it in my office at ECU.
And the one with the capitol too.
Thanks from your Mom

Charlie - hey found your blog linked off Kelly's blog (just found hers today, too; tis been a productive Sat.) Congrats (belated) on you guys' beautiful girl! Glad life in the Boro is going well. I wonder if you and Kelly know Marshall Benbow (sp??!) -- I was discipled at UNC by one of the guys he discipled while he was there (a decade ago, yea, wow we're getting older!) Take care and keep the posts & photos coming; I'm enjoying the vicarious trip into your lives!
