Greetings from Frederick County

We had a really nice, very busy Saturday starting with a morning showing of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which I liked a lot -- not as much as the first one and not as much as any of the HP films, but because I'm less emotionally invested in this generation, I'm also less troubled by any of the WTF moments, and the film is gorgeous, especially the parts set in Paris. I'll do a post tomorrow about things I loved (the sewers!) and things I hated (everything connected to Nagini).

As for the rest of my day, we went to the Valley Craft Network farm and studio tour around Frederick, came home for dinner, then picked up Daniel at the airport! Here are the pics:
