Washington D.C. Days 1 and 2

We took the boys on a weekend trip to Washington D.C. A couple of weeks ago. Actually, I went down a day early for a conference of LDS attorneys. The conference ended on Saturday though, so that still gave us some time to chill out together as a whole family.

Here is a picture of the whole gang on Saturday at the Air and Space Museum. You might notice a couple extra kids in there. We actually went down with our friends from law school. I went to the conference with the husband, and Dawnell and the wife hit the museum. They must have been quite the crew. Our dudes are 5, 3, and 1 year old twins, while our friends have a 4 year old boy and 2 year old twin girls. I actually stole this pic from their blog because Dawnell forgot the camera on Saturday.

Sunday we went to the Post Office Museum. It was okay, but very dark, and again, we forgot the camera, so you are stuck with pics from my phone.

The highlight for the boys was driving a big rig postal truck. Whooooooo whooooooo! That is Aidric trying to wrench the wheel from Ciaran's hands.

Here they all are on the Stagecoach. I don't know who that little girl is. She ain't one of the friend twins.

As huge fans of all things Utah, this sign was probably the highlight of the museum. Magna in the house!

We also showed our love of Utah by eating at Cafe Rio in suburban Virginia on Saturday night. An unexpected and delightful surprise when we drove by it on our way into the city on Saturday morning.

The boys probably had more fun swimming than anything else on the trip, so we have learned to always get a pool at your hotel. Good to know.

Coming up, day 3 of our trip, with a trip to see the Pandas at the National Zoo. We didn't forget the camera for that stop.

  2. I'm so glad you got away, even though a trip with 4 little ones can be exhausting. What great memories and Cafe Rio too! Pool's are a definite highlight with kids!
