Tonight, after dinner with my parents, a storm started. I was riding with them, so I took advantage of their back seat sunroof and windshield. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to capture any great photos of the lightning, but I was able to get a few nice photos of the street lights through the raindrop covered windows.

Today, we went to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens to see the plants, and the new butterfly house.
These flowers have grown between an emergency exit gate. They were covered in ants.

While we were traveling from Philadelphia, PA to Richmond, VA, the clouds were beautiful and fluffy. I took photos of these amazing clouds while riding in the car. Some of them come out as a complete surprise, as photographing while not looking at my view finder (camera pointed up at the sky and sun) and in a moving car is difficult.

Today, John and I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art while the Scalin family headed to a different museum and the Eastern State Penitentiary. On the way to our destination, we came across a small butterfly garden. There were two wrens being noisy. After observing them, I realized it was a mother bird feeding a baby bird bread. Behind them were tall lilies and even taller sky scrapers.
Also in the garden were a few beautiful pigeons. The photograph doesn't capture the irridecent purple and teal of their wings.
Later, before we headed to dinner with the Scalin family, rain started pouring down. This is our hotel window.
The rain had stopped by the time we returned back to our hotel room. The clouds were breaking up, which allowed the full moon to shine through.

Today, my husband and I headed to Philadelphia, PA to meet up with the Scalin family for Noah's birthday, and Skull Appreciation Day on Monday. The clouds were beautiful on the way there. There was a clear sky with a full moon at night.
