These loves of mine, along with Kev and baby Griffin,
have lived nearby for nearly three wonderful years. They will be off to a new duty station this summer courtesy of the US Military.
So as time is running short, my Kate has been on a mission to do all things DC before the move. Lately we have been going off the beaten path and exploring some of the lesser well known gems in the Nations Capital.
This week's adventure took us to the Franciscan Monastery.
|I would love to go back when all those roses are blooming!|
and beautiful mosaics along the colonnades.
It was a wonderful afternoon and I was so touched at the boys interest and reverence during the outing.
The grounds were a beautiful, quiet place for reflection.
So happy for the time well spent among all the busyness of my days.
