This blog post is consequently backward, because the first picture I downloaded is at the top instead of the bottom where it used to go. That means this blog post will start with the happenings of the end of September and go back to August, instead of the other way round.
In September I organized a group of Relief Society ladies from our ward to visit the section of DC known as Georgetown. Below I'm standing in front of the Old Stone House, which was built in 1766 and is the oldest home in the District of Columbia. It's now run by the National Park Service.
Also in September was the National Book Festival on the mall in DC. This was the first year Kent came with me. We went to hear David McCullough speak. In the picture below the author behind Kent is Garrison Kellior. He spoke at the same time David McCullough did, so we didn't get a chance to listen to him speak. He talked longer that David Mc. so we just stood on the outside to see him.
Also in September the Relief Society put on on luau for the adults in the ward. There was lots of good food, good decorations (for once I didn't decorate, so I can say that!) and we learned how to dance the hookie lau.
This is a shot of the Washington monument from the airplane as I was landing in DC on the way home after a fun time in Katy.
The Governor's mansion looked small from the outside, but seemed bigger once we went inside. It's also an historic building, which is why it's not huge.
