We just returned from a little getaway to our nation's capital. Uh huh, Washington DC. We met our friends, the dear folks who adopted Grace's orphanage bunk mate, and had a grand old time.
If you have been visiting Rabbit Run for awhile, you know that we meet this special family each year and it is always in a different locale. The girls had a sweet few days together and we parents had a pretty fine visit as well!
The Capital Union Station The National Museum Of The American Indian
The US Navy Memorial
The Newseum
More on the trip soon. I am still unpacking and doing mountains of laundry!
Kipper and I thank you for all your sweet messages about Lucy. She is doing well and we go back to the vet this Saturday. We hope to hear that her counts have improved! Her weight has stabilized and she seems so much better. Kip is so happy and we are too!
I hope your Labor Day weekend was lovely and that this week will be good to you.
I will begin hopping through bloggy world to visit each of you soon...until then...
Love and Hugs,
Susie Q

We'll catch up on Thursday, you and I, when we hit some sales and grab a bite to eat! til then, my friend, I am off to zzzzz land.
Big Hugs, Sue

I have never been to our capitol (my brother went there on his honeymoon!! lol!!). You have some really beautiful pictures of some of the sites I would like to visit. Maybe someday. I am working on that list of all the places I want to see!! It's a very long list! ;-)

Glad to know that you were able to get together with your friends once again. And, it is so special for Grace to connect with her life before you. You are so smart to make every effort to assure her well-being about being adopted. Our adopted daughter is 36 now, and I think our efforts paid off - she is a well-adjusted mother herself, now. Have a good week. Sally

How nice to be able to visit D.C. My dream is to go to the Smithsonian some day! Love the photos.

I grew up in DC, and my father worked at Union Station. Thanks for the memories.

I am glad that you had a great time at D.C. We love going there too. It is only two or three hours away.

I have driven around DC but never visited there. I hope to go some day. I am so glad you guys had a great time!

Are you still thinking about coming to NC in Oct?

Barb said...

It has been years since I've visited the capital. I was about 10, so it has been a long time.

It sounds like you had a lot of fun.


Pamela said...

I would have loved to have joined you on that trip. I want to go back to DC and visit again.

Gretchen said...

There's something so special about DC, and this was a beautiful time of year for you to visit. Glad you've kept ties with that other family. Must seem so fresh and yet so long ago when you look at your daughter each day.
