At first, I worried that I wouldn't have the strength for such a vacation since I was in the throws of exhaustion and nausea. But Michael booked the vacation with the hopes that I'd be out of that stage by then. And thank God, I am.
Annapolis, Maryland is a beautiful port town with plenty of history. The first thing we did when we got there was to have a crab cake lunch at the famous Chick & Ruth's!
|The fun thing about this diner is that they have a long-standing tradition of reciting the pledge of allegiance each morning.|
|Then we did a little shopping. This store was my favorite. :)|
|Michael bought me a baby carriage for my charm bracelet. The wheels actually turn!|
|This was our hotel, and the third story windows you see here were all ours! We stayed on the base of the Naval Academy.|
|Checking out the mass times on base the night before. :)|
|The prayer garden on the historic grounds of St. Mary's!|
|We looked down at our feet and happened to see this! Amazing! And so true!|
|We spent some quiet time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.|
|A beautiful place for reflection and prayer in the prayer garden.|
|Me with my long-time friend, Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos!|
|Pray for and protect our baby, dear St. Gerard Majella, patron of expectant mothers!|
|What a great trip it was. :)|
