A Trip to Our Nation’s Captial

In April the Hubs, The Mom and I went up to NOVA to visit my Dad, who lives there three days on (and here three days off) because he’s in the Army.  I’m writing a book about that last part.  You can read it when I’m done.  So, we took the train up, stayed in Dad’s tiny apartment, and got up and went to DC the next day.  I was very keen on going to the Museum of Natural History, because I hadn’t been there in a gazillion years.  It was kind of a let-down.  There were all these exhibits with dates on them, right?  But then there is this sign that basically says to take all those really old plant life exhibits with a grain of salt, because where they said 44 million years ago it might have only been, like 6 million years ago or something.  You’re the Smithsonian, Dudes!  Fix it!

Anywhoo, here are some pictures I took.  This is a pictorial for you.

I took this artistic photo of The Hubs while we were all on the Metro.
Waiting outside of the Natural History Museum, I took a picture of the base of one of the lights outside. Here is that picture.
Well, Jerry, since you raised your hand so nicely you can have the next cookie.
Dude, you missed one.
The only cherry blossoms we saw during the cherry blossom festival - a rainstorm wiped them all out.

I had to elbow thirteen old ladies and small children out of the way so that my mom could snap this picture.
and then we figured out how the zoom feature works....

Take heed.
At the Torpedo Factory. Hanging out with the torpedo.
Like you do.
Making friends wherever I go...
Sadly, I was not recruited.

So there you have it, our trip to Washington, D.C. and Old Town Alexandria.  It was a fun trip.  There were other things that I didn’t take a picture of, and even things that I took a picture of but did not put into my post, either because I looked really fat or because I would get fussed at for putting them on my blog.  I hate getting fussed at.

Stay tuned for more adventures.  I read somewhere that you needed to post something every thirty days or you aren’t “viable” and you know me.  I like to be viable.  I’m working on some other neat things, so get ready for a different type of bloggy goodness in the coming weeks.

Oh, and I hated Avatar.  So there.
