Moving to the east coast has had its adjustments...at least for this Nebraska girl!
For example: in the same amount of time it used to take us to drive to church on Sunday mornings, we can now buckle our seat belts and drive (fight traffic!) to our nation's capitol, Washington DC. For just an afternoon...or a whole day...or whenever friends visit and we want to see the sights!
Justin and Alicia live just a few hours south of us and it was such a delight to have them visit last month!
Stopping for a quick picture while touring the US Botanic Gardens.
Doesn't the dragon add such a nice 'romantic' touch?!
Rachel and Elizabeth were here for several days, and then most of Dan's classmates all got together for a weekend! Since the Oak Brook College of Law is a distance learning school, they hailed from California, Virginia, and Idaho. I thoroughly enjoyed watching these budding lawyers discuss and debate everything and anything!
Good food, games, lots of laughter and teasing, sightseeing...
and yes, even more debating and discussing!
Enjoying supper before saying good byes...
From left to right: Joel, Dan, myself, Michael, Tom, Abby (Tyler's sister), Tyler, and Elliot.
Dan and I still find ourselves consulting maps as we tour the famous city...I think we need a few more visitors to show around and then maybe we'll get it all figured out!! [smile] The cherry blossoms are at their peak this weekend, so Dan and I headed in yesterday to enjoy the beauty. I did take my camera -- so stay tuned for pictures!
