Charles Town Races....Fern Digger

On Saturday we went to Charles Town Races & Slots for Carolyn's birthday.  A fantastic time was had by all, thought no one really hit it big.  Ash hit a nice win/place/show bet on the horses and I was hitting the occasional slot for $40 but then dumping it right back in the machine!

Photos before the festivities began. Dinner.

Carolyn & Ash at the slots, a 5 cent slot machine, and Carolyn and Dan assessing the machine. 


This was our 2nd time at Charles Town in the past month, and I definitely recommend going if you're sitting around on a Saturday and have nothing to do.  It's about an hour and 10 minutes from Fairfax County, so plan accordingly, but nothing can beat sitting around trying your luck out on the slots and throwing a few bets on the races! 

We were celebrating Carolyn's b-day a couple days early for this occasion, her b-day falls on the 9th, which is today!  Happy Birthday Carolyn!

And yesterday Ash & I headed down to the creek to grab a couple of ferns.  This was right as the temperature was reaching it's peak, but it wasn't too bad under the cover of trees.  I forgot to upload the photos of the ferns I actually dug up, but they weren't exactly what we were looking for. I still potted them and left them out in the back, but they looked a bit "wild."  Haha.  The dogs were a mess afterwards, so it was bath time. 

And that's it!  I think we're caught up now!

Tom's birthday, DC.......

Here are a couple of photos from this past weekend at Taft's house on Cathedral. Tom's very excited.

And here's Ash, drinking her seltzer water out of a delirium glass 

She was a trooper this weekend!
