We had a bit of a whirlwind weekend in DC. We knew we wanted to make it out there before we move to Seattle and time was ticking away so we just went for it! The kids did surprisingly well on the drive and mostly well on the day we walked about 5 miles seeing all the monuments. It was a great little trip- we definitely want to go back when the kids are older and can appreciate the museums more. I will say that I was surprised by how interested they all were in the models of early humans though. Ron got to celebrate his 2nd birthday at Scott's aunt's house (with Georgetown cupcakes... yum!) and then at the zoo with our good friends the Sheffers- It was so nice to see them after a few years apart! We also made a detour to West Virginia to rediscover Scott's roots- another post for another day. And I really can't consider myself a historian if I don't document the fact that we had the most insanely delicious milkshake at Good Stuff Eatery. Go there, get the marshmallow milkshake. You won't regret it.
