D.C. United

I took Benjamin and my nephew Ariel to see D.C. United play one of the world's most successful teams Ajax on Sunday May 22nd. It was a friendly match and both Benjamin and Ariel participate in soccer so I decided they would enjoy an afternoon at RFK Stadium. We left in the 80th minute with the score 1-1. Ajax ended up winning 2-1. We had a great afternoon.

My Favorite Picture

This was my favorite vacation picture. It was Benjamin just enjoying himself, getting wet and tossing sand in the air. No prompts by me to pose. I was just sitting in the sand with my camera just taking random shots when I caught this. I love how the colors of his swimming attire came out.

Throughout Benjamin's life he's been exposed to the beach. When Weena was pregnant, we went to Pawleys Island SC where she swam in the ocean and since 2006 we've spent time at either Emerald Isle NC or Pawleys Island and Benjamin just loves the ocean, the breeze and the water. This picture just captures his love for it all.

Some vacation pictures I took when we were at Indian Beach, NC which is very close to Emerald Isle where we have rented a beach house in the past. We arrived Tuesday and headed home Friday as Benjamin has Saturday soccer sessions (see previous post). So here are a couple days worth of shots I took. We were able to spend a lot of time on the beach and we visited the North Carolina Aquarium.

PS: The snakes in the pictures are enclosed in glass. No chance do I get that close!
