Annapolis in Love

On Saturday we took a trip up to Annapolis, Maryland with some friends to the "Annapolis in Love" festival. The town is north of Washington D. C. on the Chesapeake Bay. The Naval Academy is there and we were able to walk around on campus before we came home. Annapolis is so cute! There are mostly just little shops and restaurants in little old buildings along the streets. The festival was directed to "finding and celebrating love."

We took a boat tour of the bay which was fun. The only downfall was that it was FREEZING. Guess we're not used to actual "spring" weather where it's still a little chilly in April.

We got there and ate lunch and then just walked around and window shopped. We got some delicious ice cream and just enjoyed some time together. Before we came home, we walked around on the Naval Academy campus which was beautiful!! We got home and were exhausted but it was nice to get out and do something different.

Other than that, things are going really well. Aaron finished the two weeks of paperwork and was picked up into Charlie Company at The Basic School, which just means that now he is officially in and can start the program. There are 300 openings but they send out more guys so if you don't get picked up you have to wait another month before starting. Weird, I know... I've gotten the house put together and am back into a routine and it feels good! We've met some great people out here so far and I'm excited for what is to come! That's really it for now, I'll try to get some more exciting things to post soon!
