things to do: arboretum picnic

This weekend, we got a little bit of a break from our winter weather. (Although this winter has been admittedly mild.) So Tony and I took advantage of the nice temps with a picnic at the National Arboretum with Ben, Mandy, Valerie and Andrew. It's one of my favorite places to be outside in D.C.

It's striking in the wintertime with the bare trees.

After lunch, Ben busted out his bocce ball set. And I have to say, I did pretty well, considering I thought we were playing croquet at first and was wondering where the mallets were. (Bocce novice here.)

See? That's my red one.

Here's hoping spring arrives quickly, so we get more of these lovely weekends.
