weekend in DC

We had a jam-packed weekend in DC this past weekend and despite the storms and terrible traffic, we managed to sneak a peak at the reception site for our wedding!  Standing in the ballroom I couldn't help but get excited....despite the fact that the power went out in that building and we could barely see.

Look at the damage that hit the adirondak chairs!  My grandmother and I had to take her walker off-roading to get around them (her suggestion, not mine..don't blame me!).

On our walk into lunch (pre-monsoons), we stopped in the rose garden.  There were a few perfectly pink/peach/papaya colored roses. 

too perfect, right? 

the 18th green was quite flooded.  It would have made for a fab slip 'n slide
