DC Photos
As I promised back on the 18th of May, here are some photos from my weekend in Washington DC with mom. Our time on the National Mall was... extensive. Mom swore to dad that I was trying to kill her again (the previous time was on our cruise when we took the hellish hike). Dad e-mailed Amy that I had taken mom on a DC Death March. Amy responded to him "Oh no! I sent Trina the link to dcdeathmarch.com as a joke!" Heh, my family!

Am I the only one who thinks of Logan's Run when I see this statue?

It's me mum! Really though, it's my older sister - she can't be old enough to have had me!

The Peeps dioramas were BRILLIANT at Artomatic. If you're in D.C. while it's still going on (till June 23rd!), be sure to go to the 9th floor of Artomatic to see them all. If you can't read the text under each segment:
"What people who enter the WaPo Peeps Diorama Contest think Peeps are."
"What scientists think Peeps are."
"What kids think Peeps are."
"What Just Born thinks Peeps are."
"What Peeps think they are."
"What Peeps really are."

Aw, I don't think I've ever seen a photo of your mom before--good looks obviously run in the family. ;)

OMG, I love Beaker too! He & Floyd were my fave Muppets. I had totally forgotten about that Logan's Run thing 'til you mentioned it! :) *scifi geek high-five*

The First Lady's Garden is gorgeous; I can't help thinking that it's so nice that we have a First Lady who's every bit as attractive, so it suits her perfectly. :)

Yup, Amy gets her cutes from mom. ;-)

(Seeing as I look like my grandmother Short, I'd say the majority of my cutes came from her through dad... probably. :-)
