I've been slack about posting about my last couple weekend outings. Three weeks ago I was actually in Raleigh NC visiting one of my best friends from high school, Marc.
The best part of visiting - was spending time with his animals! Here they are:
Brit, Mia, Gizmo and Rex the cat. They each have such different personalities! Brit is a bundle of energy and a snuggler and has the coolest eyes ever - one blue and one brown, Mia is the shyest dog you will ever meet, but sweet once she warms up, Gizmo is a belly scratch hore, and Rex the cat is more like a dog - loving people and attention.
I was there the weekend after St Patricks day - but due to rain their St Patty's day parade and Irish festival were delayed a week - so I got to see the festivities! They really know how to do a parade - it went on for over an hour! After the parade - we hit the Irish festival - we saw bagpipers and Irish Wolf Hounds everywhere!
It was a fun event. After the parade - we checked out the rest of Raleigh's cultural events - town hall and their musuem.
At city hall - there was actually a rally going on - I was joking around and called out "Go Obama!" to the anti Obama rally... Marc got all nervous - he told me I was in the south and had to keep it down - someone was likely to shoot me! Can you believe it!
Once safely inside - we looked around at the beautiful architecture...
After the town hall - we went to the art museum:
Here we are with an Indian princess!
We had a great weekend - thanks Marc!!
Last weekend - I went out to a coworker's party. His weeping cherry tree was blooming and he wanted to celebrate spring.
Just look at that beautiful tree!
His wife is quite an artist and one of her specialities is mosaics. Just look at this awesome dragon:
And I couldn't resist this cool birdhouse:
Unfortunately I have no pics from my recent trip to New Orleans for work - I was too busy!! Maybe next time!
