Happy Thanksgiving a few days late.... but I have good reason....

I left again....   you probably don't know this - but I am really a homebody! Or a state Body? I really don't need to leave much, and this last month - that's all I seem to do! and!!  I survived ;-)

For Thanksgiving we headed out to see one of my kids - all of us had such a great time - and I took a gazillion batrillion photos ( surprise)

So I thought I would start with the Selfies and the Us-ies  ( Not sure if that's a word - but I like it!)

You'll probably never guess where we went?

 And just so you know
We are not the most practiced at Us-ies
We would not give the Kardashians a run for their money 

At night....
there is hardly anyone around
Except the guards
They are much nicer without people ;-)

We used public Transportation

At the top of Arlington

Thanksgiving Day
This is the one day we just hung out and did nothing
It was great - well - I guess we did do something
I cooked - They ate

And the city is being decorated for Christmas

This was my view from as we left...
I might have Cried

we walked just a little bit each day
I need new shoes now

Hope you all had a great one
I am off to read blogs and catch up
and decorate my house
and start the On Ringo Lake Mystery
and pick up the mail
and get groceries
and..... shew - you know!

LOVE that shot at the Washington Monument! How DO you get the boys to smile so nicely? I usually only get a snarl or a hand blocking a face. And... why does your DH look so surprised that you are taking ANOTHER picture? You think he'd be used to it by now!! LOL

I always loved visiting DC. And you are right, public transportation and the good old shoe leather. I think it has been about 25 years since I last visited. Good to go through your eyes.

Thanks for sharing.
