Yesterday was our 28th wedding anniversary. We decided to wait and celebrate today because we wanted to do the Sunday brunch at the Gaylord at the National Harbor. We live across the river from it on the Virginia side. It takes us all of 10 minutes to drive across the bridge to get there. The other cool thing is they have opened the new Ferris wheel. It's big, holds a little over 300 people, and has air conditioned booths to sit in. So, here are the pictures from our day.

We had lunch at the Pienza in the atrium

Serenaded at lunch
There is a gift shop in the Gaylord that sells glassware, Pandora, and Swarovski. A few years ago Sam got me a little black crystal cat. Today he got me this little fellow. He is just adorable. Now that we stuffed ourselves silly at the buffet, I am going to plop myself down and do a little stitching.

Thanks for stopping by.

What a great way to celebrate your anniversary! I haven't been to National Harbor (one of those locals who never take advantage of the city's attractions!). But it sure looks like a great place on nice day.

Didn't know there was a ferris wheel there--I haven't been there for over a yaer. Cute pictures of the mouse, you and Sam & you have cute bangs!
