We finished up our trip with stops in Philadelphia, Baltimore & Virginia Beach. We loved Philly and I hope to take Mikey back one day to explore for a few days. We had super limited time here but were able to check out the Dilworth Park Fountain (splash pad) and snag lunch at Sabrina's Cafe and Spencers Too. DP & Mere were just in Philly about a week before us & DP had researched all the good food spots ... Sabrina's didn't disappoint!
Baltimore was another short stop, BUT we were able to snag an Orioles game while there! We were able to walk from our Airbnb to the ballpark which was super nice. The boys loved their first taste of Dippin Dots and Mikey & I enjoyed seeing another MLB stadium! After Baltimore we packed up and headed to Daniel & Liz Sagan's house in Virginia Beach. (Daniel and Mike lived together for a semester our senior year at Clemson.) They have 2 little guys (oh, and a pool...) so our boys were super excited to get to hang out with them! It was so nice to have a spot to be for a few days before making the big push home again, home again, jiggity jig. We swam, stayed up late, checked out the beach, and just enjoyed being with the Sagan crew. It was such an unexpected treat to get to hang out with Daniel, Liz and their boys!
We headed home...well, straight to the lake, on Thursday for a few days of catching up with Mimi & Papa and to rest. We thoroughly enjoyed our road trip and are counting our blessings for being able to go on this adventure with our little humans in tow...but there is such as sense of peace and comfort in coming home. As always, I hope that we're instilling an unquenchable love of travel in our boys when we take trips like these. I hope they'll always pack their bags & head out to see what's out there ... "there's such a lot of world to see."
