baltimore, md weekend [image heavy]

after the summer that jeremi and i have had, it was much needed to have a few days where we could completely get away from everything here at home.  with having a 4 day weekend given to me(thank you!), we took advantage and jeremi, my older sister and her two daughters, and i all went up to baltimore, md to visit the national aquarium.  it was perfect!

after our trip to baltimore, and the inner harbor, we drove up to towson, md where we were staying the night.  we settled, and then did some exploring.  the next day we woke up and went to the towson university to attend the asian many moons festival.  there was a lot to see, and do, and eat.  i particularly enjoyed the japanese dance.
