Flooding along the bike path....

The little river that runs along the bike path next to where I work..... it can't take too much more rain.  The weatherman said the other night that we had only had 6 dry days in April, which beats a record that's over 100 years old!  THAT'S alot of rain!

My son and his family stopped by to say Happy Easter.  Kellan is getting so big.  He is starting to walk already. 

My brother is the grill master in the family.  I had to have a picture of him doing his thing.

These are pictures outside of my apartment.  I love all of the flowering trees in the springtime.

Grandmother's doilies

these are doilies that my grandmother made back in the 1970's and 80's. Wish I knew how to make them.

This little guy is next to the walkway leading up to my apartment door.  He doesn't see much action down here on the ground.

Home from Washington DC

As we were heading home from our DC trip, there were several "Scenic Overlook" places and places of interest.  Of course we had to stop and check them out!

I let Ali take several pictures in DC, because I had left my reading glasses in the car and couldn't see the camera display to see if my pictures were blurry or not.  She did an excellent job.

Other stuff from our DC Trip...

This man played some mean drums using only 5-gallon buckets, a trash can, and a shopping cart (in the background).  It sounded really awesome!!

Hail Storm in DC

We walked downtown and saw the White House, then worked our way back towards the Washington Monument when we noticed the sky turning dark.  Within minutes, we were being pelted with pea-sized hail and trying to get our rain coats and ponchos out of our back packs and on the kids with the high winds and hail - was a job!  Luckily the hail only lasted a few minutes, and by the time we got the ponchos on the kids, it had changed to just a light rain. 

...can you see the rain coming down in this picture (above)?  When I took this, I was afraid that this might be as close as we would get to the Lincoln Memorial (if the rain continued).  Luckily the rain didn't last and we were able to come back later that afternoon (after we changed into dry clothes!)
