Here and Gone and Worn Out!

We had family from out-of-town visit us this past week.  
It's always great fun having family and friends come!  We enjoy using their visits as a chance to go and see a few of the sites of Washington D.C. that I never get tired of seeing.
~Tomb of the Unknowns, Arlington National Cemetery~
~Arlington National Cemetary~
I love the late nights, and the chance to cook, bake and eat out!
~Crabcake Sandwich at Clyde's~
This visit was perfect, in that when my family left, it had me wishing they could stay a day or two longer.
~Todd and Bella~
But maybe it's just as well that they're gone....  
Because I think all of us, including Todd are feeling just a little worn out.  Is that possible for him?  


  1. Todd's just a Scottie luring you into his trap.

  2. That crabcake sandwich looks delicious !
    What houseful you must have had with family, all the Golden's, Todd, Charlie, and the cats.

  3. Oh my, that crabcake looks AMAZING!!!! Did it taste as yummy as it looks?????
    Visitors are funs and tiring at the same time, happy napping!

  4. We are also having the post company recovery!
    I have only been to DC once and it was lovely.

  5. Last summer my cousin rented a house on the beach, a Mile from my house. I wish she and her family would come back again.

  6. It's always so nice to have friends and family come for a visit. The day after they leave, there's this giant hole that they left. Then - the gap closes and everything is back to normal. Ahh ... that's nice too!

  7. Rest after family times is good for body and soul, and your ginger is so like ours, stretched out in perfect peace.

  8. Guests are always nice, but it's always equally nice when the house is yours again. :)

    I've eaten at Clyde's and now I'm going to be craving them from the wrong side of the country. Wahhhhh!

  9. Glad the visit went so well. Gives you reason to look forward to the next one:). That crab cake sandwich(?) has us drooling.

  11. Looks like you all had a nice visit. I haven't visited Washington D.C. in a very long time... but it is a great time as I remember. Yep, everyone looks tired. A time for resting...

  12. You sure live in a great area for hosting visitors. Sounds like everyone had a good time.

  13. The pets are adorable!! I was born and raised in D.C. and took everything for granted for a long time. The Southeast part.

  14. I don't know about Todd but family stresses me out. It's good when they leave so things can get back to normal.

    Aroo to you,

  15. Todd worn out . . .
    Surprise, surprise . . .
    Sounds like it was a nice time with friends . . .
    Nothing like though, being home, the usual, relaxing, quiet . . .

  16. how wonderful! like leaving a great party just at the right time.
    i've been w/o a computer for ages it seems.
