Washington DC

I couldn't fit all the pictures in one post... so look at the next post below for more info :)
3D Imax...
Lincoln Memorial, Lydia had just gotten her 2nd wind :)
White House, I wish we could've gotten closer.... darn security.
The US Capitol, while it's pouring rain. It's fun to walk in the rain when you're from Colorado... because we never get that chance!


We just got back from a week long trip to DC. My sister and her family lives there, working for the government (that's all I can say :) And we had SO much fun!
Gary (Dave's dad) was able to come up to see us from Charlotte, NC. He toured with us a little, and treated us to delicious food, it was great to see him.
We played a lot with my sister's family. Her kids are the exact ages of my kids, and they were best friends right away :)
Here's Nikki, she's 8 months pregnant and still looks fantastic. She also toured with us, which completely surprised me. I didn't think she'd be up for it.
And here's Nathan reading to the kids, Sonya, Simone, Alex, and Lydia. Thank you Arps for letting us save money and stay with you guys. And thanks for the automatic play dates every night too :) We had a blast!

zoo marathon

First, happy mother's day to all you moms out there! I've been really stressed out lately and decided to push my LONG to do list to the side and go to the zoo all day yesterday! :) A late mother's day present to myself. My parents went with us, and Elijah, my nephew. Enjoy the pictures :)

What's better than being tired after a long day of fun? Not much.
