Lest Erica think I'm dissin' her...
Erica came to visit us for one glorious (gloriously hot, muggy and stifling) week in May. Amongst the coffee sipping, late night talks and nature walks, we also saw:
The National Zoo
(which is a free park, so make sure you avoid the lunchtime joggers when you're there)
A lovely hike on part of the Appalachian Trail that runs through Harper's Ferry, WV.
A scenic drive that somehow landed us in Pennsylvania.
Playing the tourists in Washington DC
The hallowed halls of the National Gallery of Art
(where I always get in trouble with the guards for standing too close to the paintings. I just wanna appreciate 'em, sheesh!)
Washington National Cathedral- another one of my favorite places
Oh, and Ellie lost a tooth.
Can you believe the gall on that kid?! I still can't convince her to stop growing up.
