Just got back from a visit to family on the east coast. This is the last picture I took on the trip- the skyline of Washington, DC as seen from Ronald Reagan National Airport. On the left, the Washington Monument encased in scaffolding (working on repairs from the 2011 earthquake), on the far right, the dome of the Capitol building.
We didn't actually go into the city this visit (I know that comes as a shock to those of you who know my obsession with all things DC...), but seeing it as we flew in and out was a real treat. I love flying into Reagan for that reason (and because it has a metro stop) and this trip the visibility was great. I wish I had pulled my camera from its bag while on the plane, but sometimes other things take precedence and the memory will have to suffice until I can get back there again.
We had a great time with my brother and his family in Maryland- did some historic stuff, some touristy stuff, and some just-plain-fun-family-bonding stuff. I'll post some pics soon- maybe put them into scrapbook pages first...
As for now, we are having a heat wave, so kiddo and I will head to the pool and try to stay cool.
