So we are a little behind on posting …

the good news is that we have been doing lots of things in DC.  Museums!  Parks!  Even succeeding at getting into the ever-so-exclusive Arboretum (it closes at 5 pm.  A fact which we forgot.  Twice).  We were prepared to be a bit underwhelmed, but it turned out to be a very relaxing afternoon complete with a little splashing in the pond and a “hike” down to the Anacostia river.

These “ruins” are the leftover columns from a restoration of the Capitol.  They feel delightfully artificial, like the planned ruins in Potsdam:

Not pictured: the horrified look of random tourists as both children waded barefoot into the aqueduct moments after this shot.

And whose idea do you think it was to perch both children on top of a rather hard rock pillar?

Both kids are obsessed with blowing dandelion seeds.  We may single handedly be responsible for reseeding the fields around Talia’s school …

And down by the river:
