Last days of vacation

We left Virginia Beach on Saturday and came to our oldest daughter's in Maryland. Sunday we visited Arlington National Cemetery. Be prepared to walk a lot even if you take the trams. However, the views and history are well worth the trip. On the hill where Arlington House is you have a beautiful view of Washington, DC. It is so expansive that a picture (at least mine) does not do it justice. We also went to the Tomb of the Unknowns and watched the soldier guarding the Tomb and the changing of the guard. So precise and quiet!

We'll travel home tomorrow with lots of good memories.

My grandchildren here like to help Grandma make jewelry. Our project this time was to make a few of the adjustable necklaces. Here is what they came up with:

We all had a good time making the necklaces. Just fun being together.

  1. That's lovely being able to make things with your grandchildren. I like beading with my daughters too!
