Give Me Your Best Shot: Roar



Pictures from the aquarium on my birthday. The boys LOVE love love the alligators. They call them “roars” and really spend time studying them. I’ve taken some pictures so you can study them too!

My parents and I went to Eastern Market today. We drove down and did a little driving tour of the monuments as I tried to hear the GPS over Little Einstein in the background. We found street parking on the block (amazing!) and walked up and down the market.

It is smaller than I thought it would be. But lots of fresh stuff. We had a great lunch at the counter. Apparently, they have the most amazing pancakes there, but only on Saturday. I’m determined to get there one Saturday and taste them!

Fresh fish, chicken, pork (I watched them bring in a pig from a truck and cut it up right there for someone.) and fruit. Also, good cookies. The Market is open Tuesday-Friday 7am – 7pm
, Saturday 7am – 6pm
, Sunday 9am – 5pm, Monday Closed.

So if you’re in the area of the capital building, take a short walk to Eastern Market and have lunch. Or better yet, go on Saturday and get amazing pancakes!

Please continue to enter my giveaways and vote for my picture! Thanks!

    That’s a great photo of the croc! I really enjoy our local aquarium too. I’ve never captured one with it’s mouth open!

    SueWhat an absolutely lleovy idea Amber. Am the incoming president for my Rotary club in July and have been trying to think of something different for my fund raising efforts. I have never liked the usual’, preferring something slightly off the wall. I rely entirely on fate which has never let me down. Came to your blog yesterday by chance. Obviously meant to be. Am going to investigate your idea. Promise I will credit you however.
