I'm Back!

So, there are a very select few of you who actually read this on a daily basis who have been extremely unhappy because of the lack of new posts. I have been soooo sick the last week and a half (basically ever since I came back from Wenatchee) and have barely made it to work, home, and in bed - let alone anything else. But, you'll be happy to know I'm back and feeling sooo much better, so get ready for some new stuff.

This last weekend was the start of the Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. Because I was finally feeling up to going out, Joe and I met Stuart downtown and we walked through the cherry blossoms to the Jefferson Memorial and watched some of the stage shows that were going on.

It ended up being really warm that day, and both Joe and I got sunburns on our heads (because we happen to be the palest two people in the history of the world) but it was so nice to be outside in nice weather.

I thought these were such great photos - this is Stuart showing off his artist ability:

Along with our fabulous day out in D.C., we also found out some very exciting news this weekend! Joe's cousin, Malinda, got engaged to her boyfriend, Quentin! Congratulations Malinda!!

Dear Heather,
My last visit to D. C. was during that big end of February snowstorm. They had the sidewalks shoveled, the roads cleared, and the parking lots plowed by the start of the next day. Not bad for a Sunday's efforts.
Obviously, no cherry blossoms this time.... They really are beautiful. They were a gift from Japan back in 1912 or thereabouts and symbolize transformation.
No wonder sso many people travel to washiington each spring.

Hey wait a minute, I know somebody named malinda....that's me! The pictures were beautiful, we have some cherry blossoms here in my neighborhood except for our house. Sadly the guy we are renting it from thought his house should be the only one on earth with a palm tree in the front yard!
