I wandered over to the Portrait Gallery (which is a couple blocks behind the National Archives) on my free afternoon in D.C.

It was recently remodeled and now it includes a beautiful covered courtyard where you can “walk on water.” I actually skipped wandering through the modern art on the 3rd floor so that I could just stay in the cool air and watch the kids (and adults) play in the water.

If walking on water isn’t enough for you, you can leap on water! Isn’t this a great picture?

In the late afternoon, I met a friend from high school that I had not seen in 16 years! (she took this picture)

We walked over to Rosa Mexicana (kitty corner to the Portrait Gallery) which has fantastic mexican food … and I do mean fantastic! There we her husband and a friend for a nice leisurely dinner. Here’s me and Susan – she is doing a great job in the picture of not looking seven months pregnant! It’s like the stealth fetus!
