Spent a few days in Washington, DC visiting with sister-in-law and family. I’ll post pictures later this week. Hit the Air & Space and American History Museums on Thursday. Sean and I loved the 3D Sun IMAX film, and Erin said her fave was the Abraham Lincoln exhibit. Not easy to explain to a five-year-old girl the shackles and hoods used on the assassination co-conspirators.
On Friday we biked the monuments. It was a beautiful day, and the kids enjoyed it. Erin loved the Lincoln Memorial and both kids thought it was cool to see the White House. Erin persisted in calling it Obama’s office.
A friend once told us vacations at this age aren’t about rest and relaxation. They’re about making memories. Too true. I came back to work to rest, but we certainly made a lot of memories.
