Najwa at FiestaDC Parade

When we first got downtown for Fiesta DC, Najwa had other plans. Tents, music, lots of color and even more people along Pennsylvania Ave, Najwa takes off in the opposite direction. It’s as if she knows there’s water at Pershing Park across the street.

Najwa not so interested in Fiesta DC, taking off in the wrong direction at Freedom Plaza.

With a lot of kicking and screaming, I dragged Najwa back to the festival. We went out there just before her afternoon nap time so she was a bit cranky. Or maybe she knew we might miss the first part of the Redskins game. Luckily we have DVR.

We ran into the TD Bank mascot, looking like a knock off Gumby. Najwa gave a couple of hi-5’s before she let it known that she didn’t feel like being bothered anymore.

Ok, enough of the hi-5ing!

We weren’t out there long, since I get extremely impatient when the Redskins are about to come on. But we stayed long enough to watch some of the parade.
