Driving through D.C., I saw some interesting sights I hadn't seen before, including the Newseum; the photo above is a portion of a 10-12 story front outside the building that is inscribed with text from the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Pretty impressive.
Everywhere we went were reminders of the upcoming presidential election--windows sported placards (like the one above) for various candidates and at the zoo we walked past some smartly dressed young college-age-looking fellows wearing Mike Huckabee buttons.
We even ran across a mural of Marilyn Monroe looking down on us from above (literally)--which apparently has quite a history.
Anyway, we didn't get home until late in the day Saturday. And today was spent fellowshiping with some dear friends (who provided a very yummy lunch) whilst we wrestled with Paul's words to the Philippians. The rest of the day was spent catching up on household tasks, getting the kids scrubbed and to bed, and preparing for the week ahead.
All in all, while it was a slow blogging weekend, it was a good family one--both for our physical family as well as our Kingdom one. Hope yours was as blessed.
