Turkey & Flowers

Hello Everyone,
  See, another post sooner than the last!! Yay, I'm gettting better. This post is from last fall. My friend Jolene and I went to visit her family who live just outside of Alexandria, VA. They were great about letting us crash in their play room and help them eat their turkey for Thanksgiving. The day after, they let us pick the activities for the day, kind of. They said we had to go to D.C. (twist our arms) so we went to the Botanical Gardens. Wow, it was amazing.

When you go to Botanical Gardens, you absolutely expect to see gorgeous flowers. They were breathtaking. I need a better camera, because when I tried for some close ups, they were blurry.

 I was surprised to learn that every year there is a display of important landmarks created from nature, twigs, sap, leaves, etc. They were beautiful to see. The pics don't do them justice. These are just a few.

I took lots and lots of pictures, it was hard to put up so few, I definitely would love to get back again next year.
  Also on the agenda was the D.C. temple which I haven't been to in years, since I went with my sisters.
Here is Jolene and myself.

Nope, we didn't plan to wear the same color, it just worked out that way. There was a wedding going on, and they were so cute. That's all for now!

Paul & Friends

Hi! Wow, it's been a long time, but I hope to do better and post more frequently. I have done lots of fun things, that I need to share.

   Last November, I went to see Paul Byrom preform in the city. Two of my friends who had never heard of him were kind enough to go with me. Paul used to be in Celtic Thunder, an Irish singing group? for lack of a better word. I was so excited to go, and my friends were great for letting me be silly.

We were waiting for the show to start. We arrived a few minutes early and good thing, because Paul came out 15 minutes early.

The pics are not the best, because of the lighting, sorry. The show was amazing, Paul is an all around entertainer, he is hilarious, as well as having a fantastic voice.

Not only were we excited to see Paul, we were at B.B. Kings place, which is amazing in and of itself. Here is David, showing us the cool chairs. Silly yet fun!

After the show, we were able to meet him and have him sign our stuff.

There are many more pics, but more of the same. Way fun, thanks guys for going with me. More to come, promise!!
