WELCOME TO THE KINGDOM OF THE BIRDS

we're just a family of finches making our way in the town w/o a frown.

face down in the dirt she says this doesn't hurt

a jim croce song comes to mind this morning as i ponder life. here is the chorus:
'Cause tables are meant for turnin'
And people are bound to change
And bridges are meant for burnin'
When the people and mem'ries they join aren't the same

i'm personally not a big fan of burning bridges, but sometimes they need to be. anywho i know you guys are just begging to see more pics . this will be the last one for DC because well, i have some other things that need to be attended to. like the aprons i am making.


this picture is for princess mindy. i thought she might like seeing that there was a street named for her. we saw this on our way to Mount Vernon.


this was George Washington's house. this is the back view. it was probably the coolest thing we saw on the trip. we had an absolute blast visiting his farm.

a view of the Lincoln and WWII memorials. i took this from the Washington memorial.


this is the front view of the Lincoln memorial. the girls wanted to walk up the steps, so i took them up the steps into the memorial. with 2 strollers we usually took the ramps into the memorials.

isn't he stately. to the left the Gettysburg address. on the right is another of his speeches.

monkey and adeline in front of the memorial. aren't they sweet.

the WWII memorial. there are 2 sides the Atlantic and Pacific.
these were along the walls leading to the memorial.
the crew. in the back you can see the Washington memorial. we were all tired from the massive amount of walking we had been doing.

we were all exhausted from the wonderful trip. we saw lots of amazing things. while at the Smithsonian we got to see the hope diamond. i recommend that everyone make it to the DC area at least once. i hope everyone has a great weekend. we're having pizza night as usual. then tomorrow we have a birthday party to attend.
