We ran out of daylight before we ran out of monuments to visit. We will have to check out the Jefferson and WWII on our next visit.

Arlington National Cemetery

I didn't have a lot of time to take pictures during our power walk through the cemetery but still managed to get some good ones.

365 - Week 21

365 days = 365 photos

Saturday - It seems going to sleep away camp made Bevo as tired as going on our trip made us. Everybody wanted to take a nap on Saturday, the pooch was the only one lucky enough to get to take one.

Sunday - Bullet got a new seat... It's way more comfortable than the original.

Monday - Struttin' with the boys.

Tuesday - We watched little guys play ball just like big guys. Tusky minor is still undefeated!

Wednesday - Dinner on the grill may be one of my favorite things about summer. Super tasty food and hardly any clean-up.

Thursday - Dog + garden = muddy footprints on the carpet at 5:15 in the morning.

Friday - TGIS - Thank goodness for Stat-care... Handy and I had a hot date at the Stat-care Friday night... p.s: Walmart is a terrible place to have prescriptions filled when you really need the medicine in a hurry.

365 - Week 20

365 days = 365 photos

Saturday - Target was having a great sale on their summer stuff. I got 3 shirts and a pair of shorts for less than $40. I can't wait until it's warm enough to wear them.

Sunday - All of the rain has been doing wonders for the sunflowers. They have been spending quality time on the roof and growing like weeds.

Monday - I got my dress hemmed for much less than the fifty bucks David's wanted.

Tuesday - Bags are packed!!! We are each allowed to take one bag so we put our clothes together and saved the second bag for snacks.

Wednesday - Lincoln Memorial + dusk = super great photo op.

Thursday - While we couldn't go in the White House we could still get some great pictures.

Friday - Little Round Top, Gettysburg

365 - Week 19

365 days = 365 photos

Saturday - Our lilac bush is in full bloom. I was a little worried about it after the late frost last spring. It smells great and the breeze has been blowing it into our living room.

Sunday - Happy Mother's Day!

Monday - The sunflower bed is almost ready thanks to the Handy Man and a rototiller. We have been putting the sprouts on the roof to get them ready for planting.

Tuesday - Don't let the smile fool you. It has been bark-a-palooza around here the last few days thanks to Sir Barks-alot. I've heard of the terrible twos but he's three... shouldn't he be behaving now???

Wednesday - This is how we roll.

Thursday - The little stretch of nice weather has really helped us get some things done in the back yard. Handy painted the garage wall and it looks great thanks to his air compressor and paint gun.

Friday - Me: 1 - Turkey: 0... This is a public service announcement for all wildlife: Don't run out in front of a car going 55 mph.

365 - Week 18

365 days = 356 photos

Saturday - Women of Faith was super fun. I was excited to hear Angie Smith talk. She did a great job, but perhaps should have come with a warning that everyone would need tissues.

Sunday - Happy Easter Clearance! We made ourselves an Easter basket from the half-price candy.

Monday - This garden wall showed up while I was away last weekend. It's amazing what a huge difference something like this can make. The flower beds look awesome. Now on to the new bed in the yard!

Tuesday - Shrimp asparagus alfredo. Yum!

Wednesday - Do you ever wonder what we do behind closed doors??? This is it! Show up unannounced and you will find us on the couch reading/using the computer/ watching tv.

Thursday - Happy Birthday Bevo!

Friday - We are the people our parent's warned us about... Why take a normal picture when you can have a gem like this one... ha!

365 - Week 17

365 days = 365 photos

Saturday - We hadn't planned to make no bake cookies to take to Easter dinner but after an hour of trying to dip cake in melted chocolate resulted in overheated, grainy chocolate we gave up and went with something we knew would turn out. Lesson of the day: Don't make something new when you have to take it somewhere.

Sunday - Happy Easter!

Monday - We tried to dodge rain drops and work on getting the grass off the new flower bed in the back yard. Bevo did an excellent job of supervising.

Tuesday - My reading goal is looking less possible now than ever. Sudoku has become the evening activity of choice around red door. Rather than reading or knitting we have been solving these puzzles. I get excited when we go to the dollar store to get new books... Pathetic huh?

Wednesday - It wasn't raining today so we got back to work in the garden. We found this "grandpa worm" while pulling up the sod.

Thursday - I was super busy getting read to go out of town. Last minute errands, balancing the checkbook, doing laundry and packing my bag. The pup decided to watch from a safe location.

Friday - Handy picked up this piggy for our garden while I was out of town. He's going to look great out there with all the flowers. We are going to call him Yoder. It's a T-county thing.
