last week Jonathan, Edmond, and I had the sheer pleasure of visiting our best friend (and Edmond’s god mother) Hanna in Baltimore. we had visited her once about four years ago, and since she makes a trip southward on at least a bi-yearly basis, we figured a trip to her was well over-due.
so we hopped on a plane! we were more than a little nervous about taking Edmond on his first flight, but he was such a champ. like. it was amazing. he fell asleep during take off on the way there, and slept the entire flight. on the way home, he fell asleep shortly after boarding, woke up about half-way through the flight, and proceeded to calmly sit in our lap and read for the remainder of the flight (including quite a bit of turbulence). for a kid who normally is happiest when frenetically scampering about, this was a huge, welcome surprise. he even waited to make very cute and happy but oh-so-loud screetches until we’d landed. so that was great. we’re already scheming about where we want to fly next.
Baltimore and our host Hanna were both amazing. we loved the town, loved getting to explore non-stop, enjoyed getting to see Hanna’s friends and parents who we’re so fond of, and could not have had a better time. we went to the zoo, went on numerous walks, saw the harbor, ate lots of delicious food, and just generally reveled in getting to spend so much good time with our best frand. We also got to see Jonathan’s bff from childhood, Don Lafleur, currently attending grad school in Annapolis.
