Good Morning, Baltimore!

Food, art, instagrams, jellyfish,
art, little italy, instagrams,
Babe Ruth, art, food, Instagrams Okay, so technically,  I'm not in Baltimore anymore, so it's Good Morning, Wyoming, now. While I'm adjusting back to the sub-zero temperatures here at home, here are some of the highlights of Baltimore.

First, what's NOT pictured- I and my colleague were in Baltimore for most of the last week to attend the National Association for Gifted Children's 61st annual conference (Above you can see a variation of what I was wearing all week, and an art installation in the hotel).  I tweeted about hearing Jack Andraka, the kid who developed a cancer test that works while the disease is in its earliest stages. He's fifteen and the lives his invention will save is probably countless. Color me impressed. We also heard many other fantastic speakers, and got great information about gifted students that will really help take our work to the next level. Like, 90% of our time was at the hotel the conference was in, that really is what the majority of the trip was, but you aren't hear for the teacher-speak. So...

The rest of it.

I had no preconceived ideas about Baltimore, but seems like it showed us a pretty good time. Baltimore is Babe Ruth's hometown! It also has a Little Italy with some truly delicious pastries. We went to a lot of smaller type museums. So I got to see an aquarium with jellyfish (yay!) and  some ancient Egyptian and greek art (YAY!). We ate way too much fantastic food. Work, food, fun, art. Baltimore had a little of everything. So, it's been fun Baltimore. But- gotta admit- being home has it's perks too. I'm off to get puppy cuddles.

P.S. I am working to catch up on blogs and comments, but feel free to share what's been up in your life. I've missed all you online peeps (do we call each other that? No? Then just ignore the faux pas, but share anyway!)


  1. Sounds like it was a great conference! Seeing ancient art is always cool, too :)

  3. Rad! I'm glad it wasn't all work and no play. I've been to Baltimore just once (for a wedding) and I loved it. It was during the summer, though, so it was a bit more comfortable. Hehe :D

  4. That kid and the conference sound amazing!

    It is so nice to hear about good things kids are doing instead of what I normally head on the news.

  5. Hahah the ending of this post made me laugh out loud. Holy moley, how did a 15 year old invent such an amazing idea?! I mean....that makes me feel very bad about where I am in life, haha. That's absolutely wonderful, though. It just shows you you're never to young or too old to do something. And Baltimore sounds like a lot of fun- and it probably says something about me that my favorite part would be all that food. Just look at that dessert platter you shared! I'd be all over that.

  6. I'm glad you got to see so much! When I was in Baltimore for a conference, I hardly left the hotel... Although the hotel had one of the officially most beautiful bathrooms in the US.
