Washington Monument in the background.
Last week, our oldest son, James, had one of his friends, K, visit us in PA to check out our new home. The boys had a great time hanging out, sleeping, eating, sleeping...and did I mention sleeping? It's amazing how much teenagers can sleep!
There were some great Perfect Moments last week including Bryce and Ryan riding their bikes to a friend's house, and discovering the freedom of having transportation and the ability to explore our beautiful town.
When Bryce and Ryan returned from their bicycle trek and I suggested James and K take the bikes out, James adamantly said, "I don't ride bikes." But sure enough, not a day later, he and K were out on bikes riding downtown to get some pizza and custard.
Over the weekend, we took the boys to Washington DC for an overnight before we took K to the airport in Baltimore on Sunday.
While in Washington, we gave James and K times to go exploring on their own (with money, of course). K had never been to DC before and we wanted him to see some of the sights. Should I mention that some of their exploring time was spent in the hotel room sleeping???
Tom and I took the twins to explore and even had some time with just the two of us. One of the best times was Saturday night when we set off from our hotel about 10 p.m. and walked the mall. It was a long walk, but the evening was beautiful to take in all of the beautiful memorials...and it's amazing how many people are out that late at night.
Here are some photos from our trip:
|Tom and I ran Sunday morning |
by the U.S. Capitol in a drizzly rain.
It's amazing and ironic how so much and so
little can happen all in the same building.
|Lincoln Memorial at night. Very powerful.|
|Of course, much to the chagrin of my teenagers,|
I had to do a yoga pose (in public).
Did Abe do yoga??
|We visited the National Museum of American History.|
The first car I drove was a Honda (matic) like this
(except it was the station wagon version in light blue).
Great memories for me as my first kid starts to drive.
