I think we all did pretty well. Now the question is ‘What do with all those strawberries?’

A day in Washington, D.C.

On Wednesday we spent the day with some great people in Washington D.C. walking.  But first we met at the Metro and rode the “choo choo train”.

IMG_2996IMG_2997

And the boys got to know each other.

IMG_3000

Then we walked and walked and walked…

IMG_3010

and saw some old bones…

IMG_3012IMG_3027IMG_3028

and some weird old bones…

IMG_3016IMG_3017IMG_3018

and some beautiful jewelery.

IMG_3033

Then it was time for some lunch…

IMG_3037

and an attempt at some caffeine by one of the 2 year olds…

IMG_3042IMG_3043

and sharing secrets.

IMG_3048

Then an attempt to keep the 2 year old restrained…

IMG_3052

but a shark attacked.

IMG_3053

So we headed back outside to search for some bugs and look at castles…

IMG_3059IMG_3060

and bird chasing…

IMG_3062

and head drumming.

IMG_3066

Then it was time for more walking…

IMG_3067

and waiting by the ones with long legs…

IMG_3069

we crossed many a busy D.C. street. (Can someone tell me why it’s shorter to cross the bigger busier streets then it is to cross the smaller less busy streets? By 40 seconds!)

IMG_3073

Anton enjoyed the girls, he’s a total ladies man!

IMG_3075

We moved on to looking at airplanes and rocket ships…

IMG_3077

(Spaceshipone: http://www.richard-seaman.com/Aircraft/AirShows/SpaceShipOne2004/ )

and I guess by this time Abby had had enough and went crazy…

IMG_3081

but tried not to get sucked into a very large engine…

IMG_3083

I love the shadow work on this one…

IMG_3088

more planes…

IMG_3091

and planes to walk into…over and over and over again…

IMG_3092

and meeting up with some more friends!… Have you seen Abby?

IMG_3094IMG_3097

the Predator Drone… ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MQ-1_Predator )

IMG_3100

sorry EJ we got to hang with Ev…

IMG_3103

and the 2 year olds finally took naps…

IMG_3105IMG_3107

and we finally! let Abby ride the Merry Go Round, after two spins she was ready to get off…

IMG_3115

Then we walked and walked and walked and Abby made a new friend, Ray, because she’s like that…

IMG_3120

and the Prez flew by. (We know because there were two identical helicopters and snipers on top of the Natural History Museum.  It’s good to have an Army guy in the crowd.)

IMG_3124

Then we walked and walked and walked… and took pictures of the Washington Monument…

IMG_3126IMG_3131

IMG_3135IMG_3121

and walked and walked and passed by the White House…

IMG_3134

and walked and walked to the WWII Memorial…

IMG_3136IMG_3138IMG_3141

“My God it’s full of stars.” (Anyone?)

IMG_3149

Then Alex decided she wanted to be a baby again… (That’s one sexy Momma!)

IMG_3153

and Anton communed with the ducks in the Reflecting Pool…

IMG_3161

and we walked and walked to the Lincoln Memorial…

IMG_3162IMG_3163

and I think we were all done by this point. This is the last picture taken by us that day.

IMG_3164

It was a great day with great people that ended with burgers and fries and spaghetti.
