around here

It has been a fun springtime here in DC. Everything is so green here, I love it. Here’s a shotgun overview of what’s been happening around here.

Eastern Market is a great place to spend a Saturday morning. Not only is there really good breakfast, but all sorts fruit, vegetables, crafts, and random stuff. Lots of interesting people too. Pretty weird/amazing when you think about the fact that all of this stuff just randomly grows out of the ground or on a tree. Spring 2010 124 Spring 2010 122 Spring 2010 126

I surprised Julie and got some tickets to the Owl City concert. As you can probably tell by coming on my blog, we really like them (him). It was a really cool ensemble of guitars, keyboards, drums, xylophones, electronic, and even a cello and a violin. Quite a show in a really great venue just a block or so from the White House.

We went to the Navy Yard (just a few blocks from our house) finally, where there is a really cool Naval museum and a decomissioned naval battle ship (not sure what it is called) it was cool to walk around the ship and go below the decks to imagine what life would be like on the ship. Bless those guys hearts, that would not be fun to be smashed into those little bunks and live on ship.

Julie Finally got to make her birthday strawberry pie thanks to a really nice person that sent her a supply of Danish Dessert (the xfactor in strawberry pie according to Julie). I gotta admit, it tasted as good as it looked.

And we finally made it to Arlington Cemetery. Pretty awe inspiring place. I’d say that’d be a pretty cool place to wake up on resurrection morning. We saw the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldiers and enjoyed a beautiful spring day as we walked around.

Pretty amazing view from the top of the hill there. Do you know the story of Arlington Cemetery? I didn’t really before I went. Google it.
