D.C.

James' sister lives in Washington D.C. Oh, how we love our families! An EXCELLENT weekend. A bit too short. But fun nonetheless.


Stacy got us a hotel with a pool. Sweet! I was in heaven. I made James, and ONLY James swim with the kids. I told him that I have been doing it all summer without him, so he could handle it for 45 minutes without me. It was amazing. I sat on a lounge chair and smiled. Perfect!


We love D.C. It had a Noodles and Company. We went twice. For dinner both nights we were there. We did some serious damage to that Mac and Cheese. We showed each bowl who was boss.
This is Stacy with her boyfriend, or friend who is a boy, we are not exactly sure, but he was awesome whatever he is. He even drove the mini-van around D.C. all night and showed us the sights. William said, "this is the best tour of Washington D.C I have ever had." (not to hurt the boyfriend or the friend who is a boy's feelings, but it was Williams only tour of D.C.) But is was EXCELLENT!


EVERYBODY wants a piece of Aunt Stacy. It made it easy for James and I to get a piece of each other. ha ha ha.


Let's not forget the 14 hours of driving in three days. We loved every minute of it. James just about lost it on the drive home, but we all managed.


Air and Space Museum


William deep in thought at something important. I'm not quite sure what it was. I wasn't as interested as he was. That's how it is. I am pretty sure he is smarter than I am.


Paper airplane contest at Air and Space.


The castle. Mooch is so protective of Nomers. I love it.


$3 ice cream bars. That makes a total of $9. It is OBVIOUS that Aunt Stacy was with us. Thier parents would have NEVER. We might have let them share 1. Oh, and Williams hand is, well, where it always is.


typical Aunt Stacy. We miss her already.


She sent us off with IHOP. James was in heaven.
Goodbye D.C. Until next time. We love you Aunt Stacy!
