This weekend was definitely filled with adventure, just the way I like it. On Friday night, my parents and I went out to Turf Valley for the Preakness Balloon Glow. There were a lot of cool balloons including the Purple People Eater. We sat on the field enjoying the balloons and some lemonade until the sun went down. Then, we got to see the balloon glow which was beautiful. We tried this event last year but it was too windy for the hot air balloons to inflate so I was excited to see it this year.
On Saturday, Dad and I went for a brief visit to State College. I spent last week purging all of my belongings already in Maryland in order to make room for the next car load from my apartment. On our way we stopped at the big Harley dealership, something Dad has been wanting to do for years! We spent the rest of the day packing up my apartment and we fit everything but one box in the car. Now it’s time for some more spring cleaning!
This weekend was also one of the big annual events in Columbia, Wine in the Woods. It was originally supposed to storm all day on Sunday but we lucked out with clear weather and a small crowd. Sami, Matt, and I set up camp in Symphony Woods with our Wegmans sushi picnic and spent the day listening to music, tasting wines, and taking home some of our favorites. This was the first year I was able to go to the event and we decided we like it so much, we would love to make it an annual tradition!
After making the rounds to some of these great events I will be sure to keep my eyes peeled for some more unique events in Howard County. Next stop, strawberry picking!
