I had a wonderful time on vacation, visiting my family in Virginia. We stayed with my brother in his "starter castle" (5 bedrooms & 4 bathrooms) plenty of room for visitors.
Preston & I went to Washington, D.C. and saw the play "Spamalot" at the National Theatre. We spent some time walking around Washington, there is so much to see.
I saw a cool butterfly flutterby (I don't know one kind of butterfly from another) but nobody told me how difficult they are to photograph! I took about 15 shots, before I finally got a usable one! (hooray for digital!)
The train was fun again this year, we had our own sleeping comparment, nice, private and WAY better than driving for 16 hours!
