Tourist Weekend

What a weekend! Good friends came down from Baltimore, and we spent 2 evenings eating WAY too much and then walking it off around the monuments. Hubby and I love to go to the WWII Memorial after's truly breathtaking. And it reminds me that I should be more grateful, that my daily life is not a happy coincidence but rather the result of sacrifice. And I am grateful. Here's a picture of the fountain - it's not great, but you get a little sense of it...

But one of the best parts revolved around our friend's young son, who is just charming! Using lots of words, running around and forgetting to bend his knees...drawing all over his nose with the hotel pen. And struggling valiantly to stay awake in his stroller as we walk and walk and walk....boy, I wish every weekend could be like this.
