Lincoln Memorial at Night
I’ve been to the Lincoln Memorial twice…sort of. My first visit was more of a run-by, as I passed Lincoln around the 11-mile mark of my Marine Corps Marathon. I was honestly more focused on keeping my eyes peeled for Heather and my parents, who were planning to be there (luckily I spotted them loudly cheering among the sea of crazy spectators), so I didn’t really check out the building itself.
However, I was back in Washington D.C. just about a month later, and the Lincoln Memorial was one of a few places we checked out on our short trip. The way all these structures were lit at night made them even more striking, and I thought the view of Lincoln sitting in his own columned Parthenon from this angle looked a bit majestic. It was a chilly November evening, but I was glad to have the chance to experience this significant site and be reminded of this country’s history.
So Happy Birthday to Lincoln and Washington this month (rolled up into today’s Presidents’ Day). And not to be forgotten, Happy Birthday today to my 9-year-old niece, Madison!
90! Happy Birthday Grandma Cook!!
This photo of my Grandma Cook was taken in 1945 when my grandma was just 22 years old. Today, she turns 90, and she still has a great smile!
Happy 90th Birthday, Grandma!!
Madison and a Blanket
Today is Madison’s birthday, and it is crazy to think that she is already 7 years old! This photo was taken when she was not quite 2 months old, as she was looking all cute underneath a plush blanket.
Happy Birthday, Madison!!
A Toast to Amy
Today is my sister-in-law’s birthday, so if you happen to have a champagne-glass-in-a-beer-koozie handy, feel free to fill it up and raise a glass in honor of Amy!
Hope you have a great birthday, Amy!
30 + 30
Happy Birthday today to two of my best buds, Ken and John! They’re both that wonderful and young (well, mature young…) age of 30 today, and I hope they have a great day.
Happy 30th Birthday, Ken and John!
Raise Your Glasses to Tom
Raise your glasses (figuratively or literally, whichever you prefer) in remembrance of Tom on his birthday. I thought this was a great wedding day shot of Tom and Jodie.
Happy Birthday, Tom! We miss you a whole lot!
Happy 4th Birthday, Noah!!
And just like that, my nephew Noah is 4 years old today! Where does the time go?
Happy Birthday, Noah!!
