Wrapping up the state of Maryland!

We had a blast taking the children to see the state of Maryland.  I'll let the pictures do the talking. Enjoy!

We visited Marshall BWI Airport, named after Thurgood Marshall. He helped fight for equality.

              The children were thrilled to see the planes in the air and on the ground.

                      The beautiful Cylburn Arboretum and Nature Museum.

             Our new friend at the arboretum. He told us he was 80 years young.

                                             You can see they were having fun!

                                                     This is the Cylburn Mansion.

Taking time to smell the flowers at the arboretum, the gardens were stunning.

Maryland Master Naturalist Ms.Daisy at the museum was full of information and fun.

Can you count the white butterflies in this picture? Must get a faster camera...

We visited the Governor's Mansion in the state capitol, Annapolis. This is as close as we could get.

The children were amazed to see so much water while crossing the big Bay Bridge. My husband told the children that the idea of constructing bridges came from studying spider webs and how they go from limb to limb. We learn so much from nature.

Is any trip complete without a pillow fight? Spending time together is what this is all about...

                                  Such angels (when they sleep). Worn out finally!

For now we are done with the state of Maryland. We covered lots of territory in a little time with limited resources. I can't thank my husband enough for his support. He is always on board when it comes to the children. I don't know if I could have pulled this off without him being there every step of the way.

This project is about learning, and discovering but most of all, it's about investing time and love together. In my opinion, children equate love with time, fancy stuff and gadgets can't replace that. 

In two weeks we will visit another northeastern state. Maybe Delaware, Pennsylvania or Connecticut?  I'll keep you posted. Thank you for sharing this journey with us, it only gets better.
