Pics from lately

This was taken by our friend James the day after Flag Day. 
We spent Columbus Day at Mount Vernon
The back of Mount Vernon - facing the Potomac - despite all the people it was exceptionally peaceful there.
Also at Mount Vernon
The next day we caught a glimpse of our current president.

At Coco Sala, a chocolate boutique and restaurant.  My champagne flight is in the foreground - Joey's scotch flight is in the background.  We went for their three-course "dessert experience."  Talk about fat girl heaven.
Julia Child's kitchen at the Smithsonian American History Museum
At the National Building Museum - they were setting up for a benefit dinner.

Okay seriously, this is just not right - I can't decide who is more fearless - the squirrel for getting so close to a human or Joey for getting so close to a squirrel - ew!

Since we went to Mount Vernon last weekend I thought it only fair that we visited Monticello this weekend.  I didn't realize that it was a 2 1/2 hour drive...oops.

The view at Monticello - wow
