Memorial Day 2009

Did everyone have a nice Memorial Day weekend? My sweet cousins and Mama came up for a visit and to see the DC sites. I don't think that there is anything that they didn't do!

My apologies for the mass amount of photos but if you're like me it is your favorite part of reading blogs. If not, too bad just enjoy the quiet time to yourself.

We started their visit off with the National Zoo. Love the animals.
Check out the cool orange/red bird. Love the coloring. He knew how pretty he was too.
This little gorilla must have had it with all of the tourists and shutterbugs because while we were watching him he threw a burlap sack over his head and started tidying up his house. He looked alot like a wee homeless man. Quit lookin' at me! Good thing I have this sack...
The girls on the Connecticut Avenue bridge. Not really sure the name of the bridge...

Sunday it was off to church at the Washington National Cathedral. Did you know that it is the 6th largest cathedral in the world? Who knew? Not me.
Can't help myself. My smokin' hot fiance, he could model. He could even do cathedral ads. I'm sure cathedrals and duomos all over the world are looking for a spicy spokesperson.
The Museum of Natural History. Or the Museum of the Hope Diamond and Sparkly Stuff, as I like to call it. That is one big elephant...don't worry, I think he's dead.

So sparkly... I might have stolen these. I like to wear them while doing the dishes and organizing my collection of badminton shuttle cocks. High five!

These are my gorgeous cousins standing on Pennsylvania Avenue. A favorite view of the Capitol Building for me.

Some touristy pics in front of the White House and the Washington Monument.It can be fun playing "tourist" in your own town.

Look kids, the Washington Monument.

How about you, ever played tourist in your own city before?

I'm glad you still go visit the museum of diamonds and sparkly things!

Nothing like touring around a museum while using a fake accent. Hi Laura!
