Irene is gone!

It's finally time for a good DRY walk. This is the extent of the damages in our neighborhood.

We are very lucky! This is a little bridge in our hood that has some debris over the bridge and into the street. That means the water was at least 10-12 feet high at some point!

This is the creek in the winter....see the stones with the snow on top....that's how the creek normally is...

Video showing the current in our little neighborhood creek.

First Dogs

Mom and Dad's first stop in the Newseum was to check out the "First Dogs" Exhibit.

I'm sure you're aware of this very famous dog.

Warren Harding was a true dog lover. He owned a Bulldog named "Oh Boy," and an Airedale Terrier named "Laddie Boy." "Laddie Boy" not only had his own hand-carved cabinet chair to oversee high-level meetings...... This picture reminds me of Wyatt's pictures and when he stands on stuff. Happy Birthday Wyatt!

He also invited all the neighborhood dogs to the White House for his birthday party, where they dined on dog biscuit birthday cake. I have to work on this and get me some good dog biscuit birthday cake in May.

He had his picture placed in silver frames. My picture is all over the internet.

Mom and Dad have been to Washington for the past 3 years and STILL haven't seen this.

To honor Harding's background as a newspaperman, more than 19,000 newsboys around the country each donated a penny for a memorial to the fallen president. The pennies were melted down and cast into a life-size sculpture of Laddie Boy by Boston-based sculptor, Bashka Paeff. While Paeff worked on the sculpture, Laddie Boy was required to complete 15 sittings. Today, the sculpture is part of the collection at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History (the artifact is not currently on display).

Just like when the newspaper boys shared their coins to support Laddie boy.

Daddy is keeping the tradition alive by voting for Laddie boy, with all his change, for the favorite First Dog!

Our great capitol

Mom and Dad went to visit Washington DC again. Our great country has the best history and museums and stuff to do.

This is the top of the newest museum called.......The Newseum. It's all about how we get our news, changes in communication, how important freedom of speech is, Photography, history, and silly stuff.

This is mommy, nephew Daniel, niece Lisamarie and her bf Steve.

Mommy 'connected' with George Clooney @ Madame Trousseau's. He liked her!

Mommy teaching Beyonce a few moves!

Lincoln at night.

Monument and Capitol @ night.

The kids and Daddy-o. Daddy LOVES his history and actually remembers alot of it.

Mommy is a wanna be health conscious person and likes to ride bikes. Here she's amazed at the middle of the lane bike lanes. You can rent a bike and take a tour of Washington. This is very helpful because you end up walkinging approximately 7000 miles in a weekend!

Ok, you really know that they were there for the Phillies vs Nationals game. I know you knew that. This is most of mommy's family minus a brother, sister and dad.
