First up - DC. I hadn't seen Kate in a year and we were both anxiously awaiting my vacation. We had tons of things planned. I get off the plane and immediately put a light up bow on my shoulder. I had asked what she wanted as a present from where I live and she replied "Put a bow on you". So that's what I did. She sees me and we both start laughing hysterically. We get my luggage and off we go to Anapolis. I was excited for this, I'm a bit of a sucker for a man in uniform and Anapolis is always crawling with sailors since the academy is right there. Wouldn't you know it - we only saw 1 sailor. I was bummed. :(
I did all of the touristy things while I was there. This was my second visit to DC so we were crossing off things on my list of what I wanted to see. We ate some crabs

My time came to an end at DC and next up was Florida to see Rae and Paul. I was so excited. I check in at the airport and get my bag checked in and off I go. When I get to Florida, my bag was nowhere to be found. It somehow got the man standing at the check in kiosk next to me flight tag and his luggage got mine. So my bag ended up in Alabama. And the kicker was we couldn't get it to Florida until 11:30 that night. So I had to pick it up the next morning. Not off to a good start. The next morning rolls around and off we go to the airport - and there was my bag, waiting for me. I had never been so happy to see my luggage. I immediatley went into the airport bathroom and changed into clean clothes. With my luggage now with me, off we went to have fun - even if Tropical Storm Debbie made her appearance for my whole time there :( We made the best of it and still had an amazing time. I even got to teach Paul how to make the Pepperoni Pizza Bread - which he did a fantastic job at. And I'm told he has already made it again and it went extremely well. When it was time to leave I didn't want to go home.
