This will be the first of 3 posts documenting my Civil War Battlefield tour Pop and I took this past Mother's Day weekend ;)

Up first, Harper's Ferry, WV - site of the John Brown raid and an industrial town that was occupied by each side 4 times each during the course of the war.

Arlington Cemetery

Had the folks down the other weekend (always love when they visit - I can do all the really touristy things...not that I don't do them anyway ;)
Anyway, went to the American History Museum (we had the first snowfall of the season...and it was October 29!), but the next day was beautiful and surprisingly warm so we went to the Pentagon Memorial and Arlington Cemetery. 
Took all the following with my iPhone.

Pumpkin Patch

Went to a pumpkin patch/corn maze this weekend with the bf, his sister and nephew. Became a little obsessed shooting the kids (they are just so darn cute)

And to shake things up - here's a landscape.

National Arboretum

After a failed attempt to go to the Arboretum the day after Hurricane Irene, we made it this past weekend. Frankly trees didn't do much for me (although with so few people around it was very peaceful and serene), but I was a little obsessed with the Capitol Columns (in case you couldn't tell). These columns are the originally ones from the Capitol Building - they were removed when the building was expanded and replaced with marble reproductions and these original columns (made of sandstone or limestone or something) were moved here. With no one around and in this setting you can almost imagine yourself in Ancient Rome.
