When Nick broke his leg…



Two weeks ago Nick broke his leg. He has been a trooper through the surgery, pain, and slow-down in life. Lord willing, it will heal soon and he’ll be back on his feet…without crutches!

The day he broke his leg (golfing) – one of the first things he said was, “I guess we won’t be putting those egress windows in this afternoon.” What a guy. :)

And of course we didn’t put the windows in. Instead his amazing co-workers surprised us one day and put both of them in for us! That was so thoughtful of them! And many other people have been such a blessing – bringing food, transporting Nick to Dr. appointments, and stepping in when I was gone to Washington D.C. last week for work. Thank you to all for your generous help!

So here’s a few pictures from D.C.. If I ever get the opportunity to go back, I would love for Nick to join me – to browse museums, walk the mall from the Capitol to the White House, and eat the best guacamole ever at Oyamel Cocina Mexicana.


It is hard to capture the rich history found in our nation’s capital in a photo. I opted to “remember” most of it instead of always grabbing the camera. But here are a few:


We did a “Night Tour” of the Monuments – I loved the Lincoln Memorial pictured below and seeing the reflection of the Washington Monument on the water.


One of my favorite tours was of Mt. Vernon – home of our first President George Washington. More to come on this…
