Natural History and Pizza

I really didn't take many pictures in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural Science, but I made sure to get one of the main hall with the elephant.

Sarah is anxious about the triceratops lurking behind her.
Our parking spot was near this statue of Abraham Lincoln in from the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.
Aunt Joan hosted a gathering at her house featuring Ledo Pizza, a local favorite. Pictured from left to right are my cousins David, George, Andrew and Andrea, George's daughter.
We had a good turnout of the next generation of the Powell side of the family. Here, from left to right, are Sherry, Aunt Joan, Kelle, Andrea, Matthew and Sarah. The last four are second cousins. Kelle and Matthew are my cousin Elena's children. Elena lived most of her life in the Washington area, but moved to Georgia, where she attended law school, several years ago. Kelle lives in Nashville, and we got together with her for a meal there not too long ago.

Aunt Joan and Sherry take a spin through a photo album. We had a great evening, and are looking forward to seeing our kinfolk again this summer at our next family reunion in West Jefferson, North Carolina.
