What a Trip!

The last few days were amazing.

The kids and I were able to tag-a-long with Doc to Washington DC for the annual ACOG meeting.  It was the first family vacation that we were able to take in 5 years.  The last time we took a vacation Oz was 2 years old and in diapers ~ he doesn't remember it.

We saw so many fun and amazing things while in DC and I wanted to share some of them with you!

The White House was just down the road from our hotel so it was definitely our first stop on our walking tour of DC.  The kids were pretty excited to see the big white building.

But I think they were a little more excited about the extremely friendly squirrel that came up to say "Hi" to them.

The boys favorite monument was the Washington monument.  They were fascinated by how tall it was.

We had to have a little photo op in front of the monument.

The boys turned into little super heroes and held up the monument for a little while. 

The Lincoln Memorial... they were working on the reflection pool.

The kids also loved hanging out at the Air and Space Smithsonian Museum.

The Wright brothers airplane.

The capital building.

We were so exhausted by the time we got to the Natural History Museum that we just shot a couple pictures and had to head back to the hotel.

What was really funny was that night as we were flipping through the channels "Night at the Museum" part 2 about the Natural History Museum was on the TV.  What a coincidence... we would have watched it... if the kids were still awake.

I'll write more about the trip later... I'm going to have to break up the story of our visit to DC because I've been so stinking busy.
