Saturday Tom & I went to DC. I made it to the National Portrait Gallery, which was GORGEOUS and wonderful. Then we met up and went to the Museum of Natural History. It was awesome. I loved all the dinos and the diamonds were pretty cool too! It all made me want to do something with skeletons in my art...possibly bird bones? No idea what shape it will take, but it was pretty darn awesome how all these animals, present and prehistoric, have the similar bone structure and how delicate it all really is. The day was SO beautiful, nice and warm and sunny!
Today, Kisha, Kristy, Amalis and I went to this cute old church in Ellicott City. It was small and every member came up to us and welcomed us, we even got a huge hug from the preacher. Kind of strange, but it was a beautiful church and a good service. We picked up Meredith and Tom and headed to Annapolis which is one of my new favorite places. It is gorgeous! We walked around the Naval Academy (the sailors walking around had such clean white pants it was crazy!) and the shoreline and then walked around all these beautiful old quaint houses. It really is a gorgeous place! We ate at the Federal Grill & Bar, and I had the best salad...ever. Salmon, candied walnuts, apples, grapes, romaine, tomatoes, berry vinegarette--yum. I could definitely live in a city like Annapolis!
In other news, I just watched the new Harry Potter trailer...and it looks AMAZING. Wow. I can't wait for that.
And I come home on Friday...I can't even wait that long!!! Ugh...soon, soon!
