Doin' time in DC

Joe and I spent our 10th anniversary doing some house-hunting. These are a couple of our favorites... but we're wondering, are they just a little more house than we need? Not to mention... they're really old!

Laura and George's place

Mt. Vernon -- front yard and back


This place is striking, but too many stairs!! (Isn't Joe a great photographer?)






Now, some of you may know that I have an unnatural love of cemeteries, but Joe even wore me out at this one -- 3+ hours at Arlington!!




Taking a homeless nap on my Prada purse.

Out on the town -- WWII memorial -- very cool fountains.
Lincoln Memorial -- Truly a shrine to this great president. My favorite spot.
Hot stuff in a sweater vest in Chinatown. Is there any major metropolis that doesn't have a Chinatown?

Smithsonian museums -- Natural History and Joe's fave -- Air and Space. I had to drag him away from these planes to catch OUR plane back to Phoenix. This was our last stop.

Just a little anniversary gift from Joe. Isn't he sweet? I didn't even know you could buy the Hope Diamond....
We did and saw lots of other stuff, but you get the picture! We had a great time. Thanks to the Hansens for taking care of Collin and Kate, and to my mom for watching the twins. They now like her better than me. But there are prices to pay to get away.

Joe is definitely husband of the year if that thing is hanging around your neck when I get to AZ! haha--j/k...I loved seeing that necklace in DC when we went...it's so darn gorgeous! Even prettier in person. SO glad you guys got to get away on your own--so deserving!

I dig sweater vests...and that one is sizzling hot, Joe. Your trip has inspired me. Maybe I can talk Jake into making DC our next trip (and into bringing his vests along...)
