No you're not. You're disloyal.*

This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to D.C. with my sister and her family.  This is the same little family I lived with during my well debacle.  It was....interesting.

Our trip started off well - everyone was excited to hit the road.

Then we sat in traffic for FOREVER!

Needless to say - the kids were excited to finally arrive at the hotel.

This is our amazing view
The worst best part would be at the temple of all places.  The boys really liked the temple, Tommy kept saying, "It's so beautiful!"  At one point he said he had thought the visitor's center was the temple and I said, "Well, which one do you think is prettier" and he pointed at the temple.  There were little sweet moments like that throughout

Um - I don't know how mom's do it - and maybe it's because they tend to just get one addition at a time and not all four at once - but seriously...I always respected moms - but I respect them even more now. But I'm pretty sure that Tommy is scarred and never wants his parent's to go to the temple again. There's only so much the sister missionaries can do with us in the visitor center before all four kids miss their parents and want to go home.

Saturday the kids got to ride the Metro for the first time.

Then we got to use the bathroom in D.C.

Then Joanna made us do more than just use the bathroom in D.C.

Ava is so mean to Tommy

Then it was back on the metro and back to some more traffic on the way home!
At least there were always seats for us to sit in

My nephews are experienced travelers now

I don't know - my pictures show me that we did a lot in D.C. and had a pretty good time.  Joanna and Ben will be happy to know that I am only remembering what fun I had.  Plus...they bought me a penguin!

Aww what a fun time! I love DC and all the fun places to see! We went down this year for the Cherry Blossom Festival. It was WAAAY too crowded but the beauty was worth it!

Also, I love that you got a penguin. Penguins are my favorite!!!
