Thanksgiving in Baltimore

My brother recently moved to Baltimore to accept a new position.  It is a great deal for him but moving to an unknown place is tough on the family.
We packed a ton in to the week:
  • Gettysburg National Battlefield

  • Museum of Visionary Artists
  • Edgar Allan Poe memorial
  • Spy Museum

Not to mention the eating, shopping, etc.

My uncle and his family including cousins from all over Virginia came for Thanksgiving.  It was an awesome family reunion.
