a house in mint condition

Here is another brightly painted Georgetown House, located on P street. It makes me think of Mint Ice cream. I no longer eat that sort of ice cream... all colored up to fool me into thinking it is really really good. Now my favorite mint ice cream is Chunky Mint Madness by Turtle Mountain... It's soy decadent and delish... and it doesn't need the green coloring to hook me;) YUMMMMMM.

Oh yeah, we were talking about houses... not ice cream... Brightly colored houses look like doll houses to me. I love the attention to detail at the roof, the door and the window frames. I never saw houses like this one growing up! =)

pretty in pink

To give you a bit of contrast, and a glimpse of the reality of this years winter weather, I am posting a shot of some blossoms from the week before the snow. This picture was taken on a day in the upper seventies. Just down the street from this tree was a lemonade stand! Yesterday, it was 20 degrees. Today the high is supposed to be 54.

finally a sign of winter!

We got some snow yesterday. Actually, it fell for a few hours, but unfortunately it is melting. Still, we had a good time playing (pictures of that another day), building miniature snow creatures, and tossing the white stuff at each other. This picture was taken from the roof of my building, looking at Scott Circle.

Happy Winter!

if you click the little 'from the roof' or Scott Circle labels, you will see this same view only green!

purple and pink

This brightly colored teeny tiny house is on P street in Georgetown. I wonder what it is like inside. I like that the trees are reflected in the windows.

It's not everyday a boy turns eleven!

On this day my baby did just that. He decided we should go to Target for his bday. And while this is not exactly a DC Daily shot.. it is a shot of the daily life of a DC kid. There are sadly, not many toy stores in our neighborhood. SOOO... in celebration of our son's eleventh birthday, we rented a Zip Car, drove on over to Target in Alexandria and he picked out a bday bionicle . It was everthing he wanted his birthday to be! We drove around a bit, then headed home to build said bionicle, while I made a special birthday cake. He had planned on dinner of veggy burgers and fries at Johnny Rockets, but our neighborhood joint was dirty and we decided not to bother. Instead we filled up (and boy, I mean filled up) at Chipotle near Dupont Circle. Then we headed home for that cake... did I mention how full I am?? Luckily I do have that cake pocket! **

On a side note, if you are ever in DC, or any of the other cities that make car sharing available... we highly recommend Zip Car. You can rent a car by the hour, day, or days. Cars are convenienly placed throughout the city and rental price includes gas, insurance and the car. It is very convenient.

**Information about cake pockets can be found in this book!

Suntrust Bank

This building is also near the White House. Today we took down our Christmas tree. So I thought I'd post this bank shot, complete with xmas wreaths. I like the copper and brick combination.

little feet

This is from my daughter's ballet class.
This marks my first 'new blogger' post. I thought I'd start simple as these sort of new techno-thingamagings seem to have a way of making me crazy. Natalie assures me it's simple... we'll see! so far so good! =) I wanted to get back on the team to post some cute pictures of creatively dreassed individuals at I Dressed Myself!

shadows and columns

This building is across the street from Lafayette Square which is across the street from the White House. I believe this is on 15th street, or Madison... it faces the park.
It was the shadows of that naked tree that caught my attention more than the building, which is why I have no more information to give you regarding it's location or purpose. I'm sure it has one.. actually, I'm sure it has both. ;)
