Hey beautiful people! I am back with a new post ( so sad ). I haven't been posting b/c my injury took much longer to heal to a point where I could type outside of work.
feel free to take a look at the pictures from the Procession for the Lord of Miracles (Jesus) of Washington, DC & my FOTD! By the way, for those who know I'm not catholic; I attend this every year for my husband (he is Catholic) and it means a great deal to him and I respect that.
FOTD & my "little" brother being plain gooft

the cutie patootie of my nephew on our way to another 4 yo's birthday party with a superhero theme, Jr was Captain America and won the costume contest...but then cried when he misunderstood the prize, he thought the cupcakes were the prize...and then we showed him the jump rope. kid had a meltdown and threw the rope and ran back to the cupcakes, kids, gotta love him!

part of the ceremony is to release ballons, they're given out to people to release at the same time
the ratablo weighs 8,500 pounds (~2 tons) and is carried by 32 men that must rock side to side, take breaks and switch out men to prevent an accident. it is considered an honor to carry it.
they're heading to Adams Morgan, crossing Connecticut Ave. NW. from noon to 8 pm they walk 12 miles.
G & I were caught on video while watching the horsies (or the back of our heads, lol)
