Weekly Winners – June 28th – July 4th

July 6, 2009 at 8:48 am 3 comments

This week’s Weekly Winners come from Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. I spent the 4th of July weekend in my hometown- Occoquan, Virginia. It was a busy holiday! I got to meet my Mom’s new dog, Willy (which between her two existing dogs, my two dogs and Willy put us at 5 dogs in one house). We made a visit to the Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center outside of Dulles. On Saturday, we went up to Silver Spring, MD to visit my grandmother. Then my mother made her third metro ride *ever* as we went to watch the fireworks on the Mall. Finally, Sunday morning I got to visit with an old high school classmate and meet his new girlfriend.

    I think everybody would know Alex is on the right.

    Didn’t the Udvar-Hazy Center used to have a different name? I seem to remember visiting, when I was about 10, an Air & Space facility outside DC. It was all warehouses and the Enola Gay was there, but in pieces. Or am I just imagining things?
