|Leah's personal favorite...Katy Perry!|
|This is where President Lincoln was sitting when he was shot.|
|As you can see the stage is very grand, beautiful and still used today.|
We jumped into a cab and headed toward the harbor, as Harbor Place, Camden Fields, etc...were on our list. We were reminded by the cab driver to stay close to the harbor as "the city isn't really safe." Clearly the show The Wire, was telling the real story of Baltimore and the story that we didn't care to experience. We headed over to Little Italy for a quick bite, Noah had located a place online that had received rave reviews: Isabella's Brick Oven. We all liked it a lot! Four thumbs up, but all agreed, Pizzeria Lola in Minneapolis has the best! We then headed back to Harbor Place while Dad did some work, it wasn't as I remembered, a pretty rough crowd and apparently a lot of turn over of businesses. While Leah begged to go through Ripley's Believe It or Not, I couldn't bring myself to do it. The Wax museum was enough for one day.
We decided to stay close to the harbor as recommended by our cab driver. We had tickets to the Oriole's game, so we headed toward Camden Field, and visited the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum. It was a really neat historical area, where we could walk all around. I think everyone enjoyed the visit.

|Yes, this is a signed Babe Ruth Baseball-Leah wasn't able to buy it for Noah!|
We had to leave before the end unfortunately, as our train would be leaving Baltimore and head backto DC without us. It ended up going into extra innings with the Oriole's winning with a walk off homerun. Noah did stay tuned during the train ride home, we all enjoyed our trip to Baltimore, but decided we likely wouldn't be back for a while. Tired and weary we headed back to our hotel to catch some zzz's to see what day 6 would bring.
Guy: 1 (He finally bought a hat!)
Noah: 3 (He always buys a hat from the fields he visits.)
