Back from Washington DC - part 1
On the Mall in front of the Lincoln memorial..it's so different seeing it in person than seeing it, yet again, in a picture.
The Vietnam Memorial
The 'latest' edition, finally; the World War II memorial
Wow, what a whirlwind that was. It was, trains, planes automobiles (and ofcourse, the metro and a cab here and there and a bus)
I'm catching up on things I need to do around the house as we came home very late Saturday night and this morning, both kids each went to their perspective summer camp..so for now.. just a few pics to show you before commentary and stories..
The one I will tell you is that I---WE (the family) got to meet Mash(from Docstrangelove blog) on our first day there and my kids and his daughter just took off and played loud and hard (a bump here and there but on the whole, no blood! [g]).. and my husband James and I had some very interesting discussions/conversations re. politics and the Obama campaign and American politics. James and Mash are really on par in terms of political knowledge and observation/insight..I was recuperating from a night of hardly any sleep, getting up waaay too early to be at the airport for the first flight and all that traveling..but..with coffee in hand, I enjoyed the company and conversation. I was not really too alert but hey, I am always good for an opinion or two.. Thanks for having us Mash and thanks to your lovely wife (doing an imitation of the Scarlett Pimpernell, she was not present) for the great spread of food and drinks...
Mash and moi!
Mash, 'moi' and James, great picture taking Surah!
