Washington DC, Septermber 2008

WW, Nick and I went to Washington this past weekend, as a past Presidential Volunteer Award winner and Presidential Greeter, I was invited to the WHITE HOUSE (can I even believe I am typing that????) to hear President Bush's comments on volunteerism on the South Lawn of the White House on Monday, September 8. The entire day was surreal, infact, we packed in about as much Washington into a 48 hour period as one could! The above picture is taken on the South Lawn of the White House, shortly after President Bush's speech.

We visited Arlington Cemetery, The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (and saw the helicopter that Ross Perot Jr. flew around the world in when he was 23 years old), ate Ethiopian, Chinese and fab crab dip at Old Ebbitt Grill, saw a play at The Kennedy Center (Shear Madness), toured the Capital with an aide from Congressman Sessions office, visited the Library of Congress, saw the Supreme Court, visited the Washington Monument, Lincoln Monument, Vietnam Memorial, Korean Memorial and World War II Memorial. And, Sunday afternoon, we heard Rascal Flatt playing from the lawn of the White House!

Luckily, Jan got back into DC Sunday evening and joined us for the play at The Kennedy Center and dinner after wards at Les Halles to celebrate Jan's birthday!

High School!!! August 2008 St. Mark's


I can't even believe that I am saying this.....Nick started HIGH SCHOOL!!!! High School officially began on August 26, 2008. He'll never be too big for me to take his "first day of school" picture!

Colorado August 2008

As we were leaving Ford Park one evening, we came upon a man with a wolf (tame!)

We were able to sneak in a fast week in Vail (we missed last year) and stayed, once again, at our favorite place, the Lodge at Lionshead. What a fun and restful week we had! Nick spent most days "bombing" down the mountain and would meet WW and I for lunch in either Vail or Lionshead. We were so impressed with the renovations in Lionshead.....it looks incredible! We saw a free concert at the FordAmphitheater, had lunch at Sweet Basil, dinner at Terra Bistro, walked through the weekly farmer's market, read and just hung out! A great way to spend the last week of summer vacation!

BFF in Washington D.C. August 2008


While Nick was off on the Pecos in New Mexico with his class from St. Mark's, and WW worked, I jetted off to DC to spend 4 fun filled days with Jan!!

Jan & I outside of the West Wing!!!-->




We had lots of laughs, lunches and dinners, toured the National Portrait Gallery (way cool portraits of ALL the presidents), toured the monuments and memorials, caught a play at the Kennedy Center (Shear Madness....hilarious!), and Jan (BSFW) snagged us a much coveted West Wing Tour of the White House!!!! How cool is that???????
