Maryland Trip- Summer 2012

Here are some photos from our trip to Maryland in the summer of 2012.  David and Greg stayed at my mom and dad's house with us for the first few days we were there.  We (mom, dad, kids and I) went to Philadelphia one day and saw Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed.  This was perfect timing as Shayne and David were going into 5th grade, the year they learn about the American Revolution.

  The boys had a good time building a lego city

We spent some time at Dale's house too.  The kids had a great time swimming with their cousins, as always.

We also went to the National Zoo.  While we were there, we saw the elephant that is almost the exact same age as Shayne and David.  He was born on November 25th 2001.  Kandula weighed 324 pounds when he was born and now weighs about  7000 pounds.

Later, when Rick flew in we went to Baltimore for the day.  We went to the Children's Science Museum there and walked around the Inner Harbor.

This is actually a bed of nails!  It doesn't hurt because his weight was evenly distributed.
