Trip to Baltimore

Sunday, we took a day trip out to Baltimore to see our friends Shelley and Jason. They are getting married in October and asked Lee to take some engagement photos for them. So, we hopped in the car and headed out. This was Olivia's first road trip outside of Ashburn! Here she is enjoying herself in the car!  Her hat is a little big, but it was keeping the sun out of her eyes!

We got to Shelley's and visited a bit before heading to Patterson Park to start the picture taking process. 

There is a pretty nifty pagoda there that made for some pretty cool pictures.  While Lee, Shelley and Jason were working on the photos, Andrew walked around with Lee's second camera and took some photos of Olivia. This is my favorite!  He got her in one of her only sleeping moments.  I think she didn't know what was going on and decided to be fussy a lot! 

After Patterson Park, we drove to the marina where the boat Jason captains was docked.  Lee took some pretty cool photos of them on the boat while I rocked Olivia in her Bjorn to try to keep her happy.  There were SO many people partying on their boats while they were docked.  Gas is so expensive these days and these were some BIG boats, so I can imagine they take a lot of gas to run.  We chatted with some of the boaters and they LOVED Olivia.  It's a lot of fun seeing people's reactions to a 5 week old baby and have them give me props for having her out and about so early!  Although, I'm sure there are other folks who look at me like I have 6 heads because I have her out, but whatever! 

All in all, we had a pretty good day.  I only wish Olivia would've been a bit happier, but that's what happens with a newborn!  They can't always be so chipper.  We look forward to Shelley and Jason's nuptials in October!
