My New Normal

I feel like such an adult sometimes. I took a week off of work, and came back to about 10 million things I had to do. Between planning the upcoming trips (Disneyworld and a cruise!!!) To doing intake interviews for new travelers (the worst part of my job) and to taking care of a new addition to the rec center, I've been busy. Here's what I've been up to!

Our camp was given two turtles, and since I am one of the few full time staff who lives here year round, I get to take care of one of the turtles! His name is Alfred, and he's a box turtle. I can't tell you much more about him, since we don't really get along. But I am attempting to buy his love. Someday, I will make a great mother.

I bought him a water dish, and he liked it so much that he decided to swim in it! 

I finally got to try crabbing (I really didn't do anything, but I like to pretend that I'm a real Marylander :) 

One of the coolest parts about living in the DC/Baltimore area is that we can go to tons of concerts. This is Fall Out Boy, more specifically that's a faceless Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy. Tomorrow night, I'm going to relive middle school again by going to see Yellowcard!

Birthday time! 
Apparently turning 23 means multiple birthday celebrations! I was able to celebrate while home, and then also out in Maryland! I have some awesome friends and family :)
Family Dinner with my Maryland family!

No trip home is complete until I get to go to a Rockies game!

I finally tried this whole "let's put bacon on sweet things" and had a maple bacon cupcake. It was interesting...very mapley. I did however, get to eat a lot of chocolate dipped bacon this summer, which was wonderful.

We had our first trip of the fall, which was a baseball themed weekend in Baltimore and DC! I would love to say that the game was fun, but I ended up sitting this one out with some travelers who didn't want to go to the game. I also spent a lot of time driving around DC, because DC's roads suck.

On Saturday, we went to the Sports Legends Hall of Fame in Baltimore, which was dedicated to all things Maryland Sports Related. It was also right next to Camden Yards! While we didn't get to go in to Camden Yards, I did stand outside of it!

 I plan on going to a game there next week, so Camden Yards can be baseball stadium number 4!

This week, we're heading back to Ocean City, MD for a festival! Then it's New York, Disney World, Hersheytown PA, and the cruise!

Also coming up, my 6 month anniversary of working at Melwood! It may not seem like long, but it is flying by!
