Washington DC

Lately Laurīts is talking about Obama kungs māja (translates Mr. Obama’s house, he hasn’t gotten the hang of the word President just yet). Luckily, it isn’t because of the extended election coverage on TV, nor is it due to any political discussion in our household.

We don't think Obama kungs was home
On our way home from Chicago we detoured to Washington DC, where two good friends got hitched. We attended a very beautiful rehearsal dinner on Friday, complete with half-naked, passed out kids in strollers.

Did you know the Washington Monument is closed for repairs since the August 23, 2011 earthquake?
Saturday, while my husband was off with the groom doing who-knows-what-it-is-they-do-before-the-ceremony, and Mikus was busy catching up with his grandmother, Lauris and I joined a group headed for the capitol. The White House, several monuments and reflecting pools later we were already on our way back to start getting ready. I would love to return to DC to do a proper tour of the area.

Maya Ying Lin, then a student of Yale, designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial
Then of course, the atkāzas on Sunday. Because it isn’t a Latvian wedding if it doesn’t go three days.

Mīļie Āri un Laura, novēlam lai jūsu dzīvē līdz mūža rudenim nepietrūktu mīlestības, saticības, laimes.

  1. I love that he knows the President by name. It sounds like you had a fun time. We watch the American news every morning (evening news for them) so we knew the monument was closed. That just means you'll have to go back next yer.
