What a weekend!

Like a whirlwind, but with some awesome memories, and of course, lots of good fun.

Mom and I headed to Washington DC last Thursday, and spent two days walking MILES!!!  Luckily, we hit the  Cherry Blossom Festival, http://www.nationalcherryblossomfestival.org, which was unbelievable.  It was so pretty, words can’t even describe.  We were so blessed to have beautiful weather, not too hot and not too cold, and no rain.  The blossoms were amazing, and we were there two days after the “peak” day.  We also found some really great restaurants and bars in our travels, Guapo’s, http://www.guaposrestaurant.com, which was right near our hotel was phenomenal Mexican food, Fado Irish Bar, http://www.fadoirishpub.com/washington, right in the middle of DC’s Chinatown, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinatown_(Washington,_D.C.)!!  We spent almost a whole day shopping (:D) and found some pretty spectacular deals, and a nice variety we don’t typically get in our shops in Florida.  Chevy’s. http://www.chevys.com, was lunch, and yet another Irish bar for dinner, http://www.samuelbecketts.com, although this bar had brown bread (just like in Ireland!!) and amazing smashed carrot, parsnip and turnip medley… just like Mama makes!  Our waitress was so cool, and gave us extra brown bread… talk about a yummy brekkie!  Lunch before the flight home was at Busboys and Poets, http://www.busboysandpoets.com, great turkey and cheese sambo!

Dawn’s wedding was on Saturday, 13 July, and we had a great time.  Mom and I played around with the camera after getting dressed up, and got some really great shots!  Dawn looked like an absolute princess, and Scott cleans up pretty nice, I am so happy for them, and excited we were able to participate in their special day!
