Alex eating Crab!!!

On Saturday we drove to Easton, MD for the PWSA of MD/VA/DC picnic.  Easton is on the east side of Maryland and you have to cross the Bay Bridge to get to it.

This video is of us crossing the Bay Bridge over the Chesapeake Bay.  It is so awesome looking across. It is 4.3 miles across. (The San Francisco Bay Bridge is 4.5 miles across for anyone who may have gone over that for a comparison.)  Try not to get car sick watching it, though!

Apparently, eating crab is something you do when you picnic in Maryland.  Alex had to try this.  Fortunately, we had a great teacher who showed us how to eat crab.  There's really not much meat, probably spend more time breaking the sucker open than eating, but it was fun.  Alex had it down good.  All the crab here is fished from the Chesapeake Bay.  I think he ate at least six crabs! The children enjoyed swimming in the pool and Seth loved the swing!

It looks like the kids had a blast on the bridge. Have you been down to Virginia to experience the tunnel bridges? They would really love those. I spent seven months in the Norfolk area opening a distribution center for a previous employer and at 50, I thought they were really cool. I even bought a souvenir book on how they were built. My kids loved reading the book and looking at the pictures.

Thank you for sharing.
