Rooftop Date

Happy hour on the roof with Barrett and K. Sadly, Pop missed out because he left his phone at Macy's.

Hillwood Estate and Gardens

Barrett's parents are in town and had only one request for sight seeing. It was moved to the top of the list! Hillwood Estate in NW Washington DC. It was such a nice day, we started with the garden walk.

Diana the Huntress and her dog..
Then the tour guide achieved a level of annoy that was not sustainable, so we bailed to view the orchids in the greenhouse.

Blossom Kite festival

We bundled up, Braved the cold and enjoyed an afternoon on the Mall. Kites of all shapes and sizes filled the sky!
Bernadette got the cure for her cabin fever, lots of people, fresh air and at least one off leash squirrel chase.
Barrett loves kites and jumped in to help many an overwrought kite pilot keep their flights going.
I mostly enjoyed the picnic of wine and cheese as I oriented away from the wind.

Hybrid Vigor

I have seen this dog several times since moving here, butter usually as I am going to work rather than walking the dog. This morning Bernadette got to meet her doppelgänger George. The best news is that he is 17 years old, which gives me hope that she will have a long, full life too. One of the best things about having a mutt!
