Terrapin Adventures

While Jill and Sarah were here, we went to Terrapin Adventures at Savage Mill. There, we zoomed across on the zip line and then tackled the Terrapin Tower (pictured here). The weather stayed sunny and warm, and we all enjoyed the challenge. Colleen says that she liked it very much!

Those crazy orthodontists!

Two local orthodontists (Stewart and Labbe) sponsor a photo contest - the patients are supposed to have their photo taken while they wear a t-shirt with the doctors' names in different places (some distinctly related to Maryland, and others are more general). Sort of like a summer-long scavenger hunt.

ANYWAY, someone who did this last year posted a YouTube video featuring their photos, set to the 1982 hit "Da Da Da" by Trio! (Somehow, it fits.)
