national gallery of art - d.c.


I spent Friday afternoon, well, just two hours of it, in one of my favorite cities, Washington D.C. I walked around on this lovely fall day in the sunshine down to the National Gallery of Art and enjoyed walking around taking pictures for a little bit. I actually went to the museum with the purpose of taking pictures more than admiring the paintings. 





 D.C. is such a lovely city to walk around. 

 I really like how this self portrait turned out.

vacation

As is our tradition my family headed up to Canada for our family vacation. And not being one much for writing. Here are the pictures.



The adorable town of Niagara on the Lake

My great aunt and uncle who just celebrated 65 years of marriage

Like father like daughter, reading and enjoying wearing sweatshirts in the cool weather
What would a family vacation be without s'mores?

Dad cooked us some delicious breakfasts over the open fire

Our dog's favorite thing to do is lay on the tube while it is tied to the dock, she'll spend hours on it.



Some of the best Canadian butter tarts. These ones are maple bacon butter tarts which are delicious despite the questionable bacon. 

This bakery is inside an old church which is right on a lake. 
My days looked liked this. Reading on the dock for hours.

















Dear friends who drove a long way to visit us. 

Our last night there we were given a beautiful goodbye sunset after a crazy thunderstorm
