ToadMama the Tour Guide

Hi all. Sorry it's been a few days since my last post. The weekend at the WV Place was pretty uneventful. Monday I was busy getting ready for some out-of-town guests to arrive. And Tuesday, yesterday, I was showing said out-of-town guests the beauty of Washington, DC.

The guests I am speaking of are Annelies, a coworker friend, and her boyfriend, Yves. They are from Belgium. They've been touring the northeastern corner of the US for a few weeks. They stopped here for a couple of nights to visit. And because I promised to take them to DC.

As you can see from the above image, it was a gorgeous day. We could not have prescribed better weather. We got to see lots of stuff, too.

I'll give you more details later. I actually have to work today (BOO!). I have lots of pics to share. And some stories, of course.

I just wanted to post a quick update so you wouldn't be too worried.

Hubby and I have enjoyed their visit immensely. More to come later...


  1. Annelies and Yves had awesome weather for their visit, that's for sure. I hope you all had a good time visiting. Now you'll have to go to Belgium to visit *them*. :-)

  2. I am SO there.

    Really good people that I enjoyed spending some time with.


  3. Yep, Dad and I are both ready to go visit. You're invited to go stay at their place in Belgium, too. I am not sure exactly where they live. I just know it isn't in Brussels or Gant. But it's close to the latter, which I probably spelled wrong. (-:

  4. Yep, it's spelled Gent. But you're all still welcome! :-))

  5. I think Barcelona is the closest Shannon will be to your place. If she had a car, it would only be a 12-hour drive. And she'd get to go right through the middle of France. You'd both have fun if she did visit. (-:

  6. Hmmm. . .is that a hint? :-) I'm not ruling it out and I'm sure it would be fun, but I don't have an international driver's license so that would be my biggest hurdle to overcome.


Please say something...
