Back in Virginia Beach.....

.....or Hampton, to be specific. We spent the day yesterday in Washington, DC. First, we went to the walk by the Capitol building. That was really cool....all of the buildings there are sooo beautiful!! Then, we walked for a while and ended up at the Smithsonians. We went through the Botanical Gardens. That was really nice....and I love flowers!! There were some really pretty ones there, too. Next, we walked to the Native American Museum and had lunch. There is a really cool cafeteria there....you can kinda pick your luch a'la carte. Mom and I had Bison Prime Rib....very tasty. You can't go wrong with that, can you?? Then, we went to the Air and Space Museum. That was really neat, too. There were some great displays there. Last but not least, we went to the Holocaust Museum. Wow - that is a really powerful place!! There are some thought-provoking displays and pictures. One of the most powerful parts of it, for me, was a train car that they actually used to transport the Jews to the death camps. Wow -- we walked right through it. That place in general makes me want to read The Hiding Place again.

Well, here are some pictures that Dad took. I hope you enjoy them.....




Today, Mom, Cynthia, Marilyn and I went to the Potomac Mills Mall. That was fun, too. We met my friend Silvia and her kids David, Mela and Bella there. So we did lots of shopping and had lunch together and did more shopping. I got some really cute stuff for Cynthia. There is a onesie that says "I love my Auntie"....I've been looking for something like that for her since before she was born....they are hard to come by, and I would have settled for even a bib. I also got two shirts and a pair of capris at Lane Bryant...love that store!!

Then, Mom and Dad and I left and drove down to Hampton. Here I sit now at Mark and Krystina's. That's the end of my day.

Well anwyays, it's late and I need to get going here....my poor little brain is fried. I stayed up way too late talking on the phone last night. LOL!!!
