I Did It!

I'm so proud of myself! I finally figured out how to get back here and upload pictures using Google Chrome.  Boy, they do not make things easy for the computer illiterate. But maybe now I can say I'm a step up from that :)

Anyway... so, we spent a week visiting our son and his wife in DC. It was so good to spend time with them and, being in the middle of their spring (and ahead of us by about two weeks), it was just beautiful.

We saw so much...I won't bore you with pictures of monuments and museums. We took our kids all over the country while they were growing up, but we stayed away from big cities, preferring national parks and beaches. Now I wish we had taken them here. It wasn't that hard to get around. Though it was nice to have a Metro lesson from Justin first!

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day. We went to a state park with the kids, went on a short hike and let Tad throw rocks in the creek while we looked for fossils, and then ate at a huge buffet at the park inn. They had fried biscuits and hot apple butter. Yum! What a great day!
