Up Close, By Melanie G.

I came home from work one day earlier this spring and found that Mel had put my camera to good use and took some pictures of our azaleas 

The one below is one of my favorites
Love this one above too...the color contrast is lovely

I currently have this one as my background on my work computer.  It makes me smile :)

Medieval Times

Go back in time...kind of...We did it and everyone else should too.  Expect it to be a little cheesy and a lot of fun and that's exactly what you'll get!

For Lisa's birthday we went up to Maryland to Medieval Times, where they re-enact a 12 century tournament, with horse, jousting, swordfights and more.

Where polite society is left behind and you eat with your hands and boo the bad guys.
The Lord Chamberlain - Master of Ceremonies
Amazing trick used by the knights during battle to protect their rears.  The horse would rear up and kick to the back
So cool!

The Falconer

Partially eaten dinner...remember no utensil 
Our Knight

Cherry Blossoms

It's that time of year! Spring!

I love this time of year.  I have some wonderful friends who gave up a little sleep to head up to DC to see the the Cherry Blossoms early Saturday morning.
I was surprised how many people were already there.
We ended up parking in never never land. BUT it turned about well because of the great pictures we got on the way to the tidal basin and on they back.

Great Friends :)
