Last year we spent Christmas in Denver.  Cold and snowy.  This year we headed to the opposite coast.  Dustin and Chrissie made sure it would be sunny and warmer than San Diego.  But, it wasn’t the promise of warm weather that got us heading to Baltimore.  It was our first chance to see and spoil our new grandson…Carter!

Not sure how Chrissie managed at being a new Mommy and organizer of a Dingman Family/Howard Family Christmas get-a-way to the mountains a few hours outside of Baltimore, but she did.

good times were had by all…IMG_4941
