119. A Look Back at Summer Vacation

I can't believe it's almost over. Summer vacation. Aahh. It was very pleasant. And although I've blogged about bits of it, here are a few more photos (in no particular order) to give me that lift I'll need next week, as I face the mountain of work waiting for me.

Watching a 4th of July parade in Tacoma, Md. with the Kings and Taitanos.

At the folk art festival at the National Mall, Washington, D.C.

Having fun with art at the Hirschhorn Museum in Washington, D.C.

After biking at Winton Woods, Cincinnati.

After horseback-riding at Winton Woods, Cincinnati.

Jadine and Anna with our Resident Rep, Pete A. Tenorio, at the NMI/Guam Liberation Day reception at the Cannon Bldg.

Myth and moisture at the Library of Congress (next to the Supreme Court).

At the WWII memorial in D.C.

As Parvati and Padma Patil, at a Border's HP7 release party.

At Saint Nicholas' church in Indiana (where Anna won a hand-embroidered, hand-stitched quilt).

Vacation is a blessing. All I can say is thanks--to everyone who made it possible.

I have a picture in front of that memorial...except it was frozen and covered in snow when I was there.

So glad it was summer. I'm not a fan of snow.

Yay! Winton Woods Riding Center is the coolest stable EVER. I am its number one fan. Is that Tin Man? He's one of my favorites.

Kim, I grew up in Cincinnati, so have loved Winton Woods for a long time. The riding stable is just one of its many attractions--it's pretty cool riding through cool, deep woods on horseback on an otherwise hot summer day! I don't remember the horse's name, though! So I'll take your word that it's Tin man!
