Spring Garden Tour

This is a week-late in posting but it’s still Spring, so good ’nuff. Last week we attended the White House Spring Garden Tour with Nonni and Papa (my parents) in tow– very cool stuff. As a Marine band played we strolled the grounds and got to see close-up views of things like Jackie O’s Garden, the Rose Garden, West Wing/Oval Office (exterior, of course), the tennis court, and the Children’s Garden. I video-taped and photographed much of it, in the process capturing an excellent wipe-out of Mia as she tried running on the jogging path. The soundtrack of the video is the Marine band playing something I wish I knew the title of– they sound wonderful until the very end when for some reason they end on an odd sour note– like a big out-of-tune sneeze. It was a great day finished with a tasty brunch at Old Ebbit Grill, and a very tired Mia.
