Circle Time: The Show and Tell Weekly Thread

Welcome back to Show and Tell. Everyone is welcome to join, even if you have never posted before and just found out about Show and Tell for the first time today. In fact, we hope you do go back to your blog and post your own Show and Tell item and then return with the link to your post. Details on how to participate are located at the bottom of this post.

Let's begin.

Beyond the moment when I had to pee so badly that I made Josh pull over to a random hotel so I could go in and use the loo, we had a perfect day. My brother was in Baltimore for a conference so we drove down to the Inner Harbour, reliving our childhood by singing the Power Plant theme song, discussing the merits of Au Coton, visiting the the flag shop where I got the Albania keychain for my first car, and--of course--eating Oasis water ice which is not quite as good as I remember it to be.

But the best part was being out on the Chessie paddleboats in perfect 70 degree weather. No, actually the best part was Josh agreeing to do all the paddling and allowing me to sit my lazy ass in the back with the ChickieNob.

I love Baltimore.

What are you showing today?

Want to bring something to Show and Tell?
  • If you would like to join circle time and show something to the class, simply post each Sunday (or earlier in the weekend or on Monday if you can't do Sunday), hopefully including a picture if possible, and telling us about your item. It can be anything--a photo from a trip, a picture of the dress you bought this week, a random image from an old yearbook showing a person you miss. It doesn't need to contain a picture if you can't get a picture--you can simply tell a story about a single item.
  • Label your post "Show and Tell" each week and then come back here and add the permalink in the comments section below (make sure you don't just comment that you participated: add a link to your blog in your comment so people can click over). I post a new Show and Tell post every Saturday night or Sunday. I usually move people up into the body of the post every few hours.
  • Oh, and then the point is that you click through all of your classmates and see what they are showing this week.
  • If you want it...
    I've now placed a Show and Tell archive on the sidebar that will be updated each week in case you miss it. And click here for the icon code if you wish to have it for your blog. It links to the archives.

It sure looks like a fun trip. And all my favourite trips have almost always included water.

I LOVE the inner harbor in Baltimore. I spent a summer working at a homeless shelter in downtown years ago and walked to the inner harbor every day. Beautiful city and beautiful harbor. I often refer to it as the best summer of my life. Seeing your pictures brought back fond memories.

Maybe it's time for me to visit my brother in Baltimore!

I'm late this week, sorry! I'm glad you had a good time in Baltimore - I was there this weekend as well. ;)

My post this week is a book review of a biography of Jackie Kennedy - I'm Showing and Telling b/c I didn't realize the battles she fought with IF and infant loss.

I'm a little late this week too (the extra weekend day is great, but I'm a little off!). Here's mine
