Welcome to Alexandria, our last trip of 2007! You'll have to pardon the long posts recently. I would love to do slideshows...however our computer has once again decided to not allow me to load or view slideshows.
I LOVED these amazing flower shops!

Rudolph, I did not know that you were made of duck-tape. . .
Torpedo Factory

Alexandria. . ."the fun side of the Potomac"

Sobering. God bless our troops!

Arlington. I know not everyone in the Kennedy family was or is great, but I admire Jacqueline Kennedy. It was a beautiful grave-site. What a special lady she was.
Just happened to see this quote as we were walking by this stone. I've always loved the speech that President Reagan gave after the space shuttle exploded, especially his line "they slipped the surly bonds of earth...and touched the Face of God". That quote was etched on the bottom of this couple's tomb stone. Beautiful.

We were so excited to run into our friend Ben! He was our tour guide when we visited Southeastern and he became fast friends with Steve. I was very excited to meet his wife & baby! We were walking into the main service at CHBC & bumped right into them--they happened to be visiting D.C. the same weekend!
speak for yourself!!!

Air & Space Museum. . .Steve's favorite! We were really looking forward to going to the American History Museum. . .but it was closed:/

Salute for Steve's dad:)
Our friends Rob & Julie invited us to go with them to D.C. They are great friends and we had a wonderful time!
New Year's Eve at the Hines'!
My cute pregnant friends!
Happy New Year!
