But somehow it worked and ended up being fun. We needed a day with just our little foursome, we needed to try something new, and we definitely needed to explore our new home. So we pulled out a list of State Parks, circled a few that looked interesting and took off down the road.
And that was our day! Well, most of it. To sum up the rest we hiked back to the car as quickly as we could with two strollers. Met a couple with two Weimaraners that convinced us, yet again, we need to get some (we keep changing out mind!), ate some amazing surf and turf at a restaurant we'd never heard of, discovered a former railroad bed that is now a bike trail only a few minutes from our house!, put two very tired boys to bed as soon as we got home, and then watched a movie that ended up keeping me awake half the night.
So yes, we had a full, exciting day exploring Maryland, found new reasons to love our new (albeit temporary) home and came back with a whole list of things to do and places to see over the coming weeks. And maybe I'll even get a few more blog post ideas from our adventures!
