We went to Green Lake, Wisconsin with our friend Andrew for a weekend getaway. Here is Andrew showing off the first fish of the trip--a large mouth bass which Chris prepared for dinner that night.

Our little sea dog. She was great on the boat, and even decided she could swim (Of course, it was because she was chasing ducks in the water...)
Chris showing off the two fish that he caught within 30 minutes of each other. A large mouth bass and a nothern pike.


Caught my first two fish! First up, a small mouth bass and finally a 28 inch Northern Pike!

The 2009 Independence Day Parade on Constitution Ave.

Watching the Nats win one on July 4th at home and watching Adam Dunn hit his 300th career home run. Go Nats!

Paddle boating in the Tidal Basin

Chris & I decided to give paddle boating a try since we really wanted to see the Jefferson Memorial but really did NOT want to go through security again. Who knew a slate picture frame could be considered a weapon...?

Fireworks



After a long, hot day, we found a place to sit and watch the fireworks from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial overlooking the Reflecting Pool.
