I am playing along with the Splitcoast CAS Challenge to make a tall and thin card and I am playing with the CAS-ual Friday Challenge to color block.
We left for Washington D.C. a week ago last Friday. My youngest son, Erik, was selected to attend the Junior National Youth Leadership Conference. We dropped him off on Sunday for his first sleep-away camp, but on his first full day we saw that the group was visiting various D.C. memorials so we "stalked" them to get a photo. We were far away and I was using a zoom lens, but he still managed to see us and wasn't happy at all about it! (See the kid with the green pants and untucked shirt!)
My oldest son, Andrew and I, spent a few days touring D.C. before heading to Richmond to visit my mother-in-law. (My husband stayed back here in Colorado with the pets??!!) Andrew and I did a lot of regular sight-seeing, but his favorite thing was the food trucks. This is Tasty Kabob, a food truck we had seen the day before with a line so long it stretched past all the other food trucks who didn't have any customers. Andrew tracked them down the next day in a different part of D.C. so we had great fun exploring the Metro system trying to find them!
We are absolutely thrilled to be back - partly because it was 90 and humid when we left Richmond and it's 50 and raining here in Colorado (I HATE heat and humidity.) I am so looking forward to getting back into the cardstock and glitter and stamps!
