Touring DC

So it's taken me a little too long to update the rest of the photos, so I'm just going to put a few up here (OK - 16). I want to update with some pictures of our trip to Alabama to ride on the Polar Express, too, so I'm going to do that right after this. Lots of pictures to catch up on!

Remember this photo?

Here he is, two years later!

Riding the Metro (aka: THE TRAIN, MAMA, WE RIDING THE TRAIN)

Anthony had the Metro map memorized by the time we had ridden it twice.

We got to go to the zoo, too! We saw lions (most important), elephants, tigers, orangutans, and found this adorable hat for my littlest lion!

After the zoo, we took the boys on a tour of the Capitol Building. Anthony recently finished a Social Studies unit on the US Government, so this was exciting (and boring) for him!

He did enjoy telling our tour guide that he knew all about the Capitol, though!

We went to the National Archives after the Capitol to let Anthony see the Constitution. We got a little bored waiting in line, so Anthony and I horsed around.

The next day, we went to the Natural History Museum to see the dinosaurs again. Here's another throw-back photo:

And two years later:

After seeing the dinosaurs, we got some popcorn and had some little friends who asked us to share.

That evening, we celebrated Mark's aunt and uncle's 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was such an honor to be there to congratulate them. They are truly a beautiful couple, and an inspiration for Mark and me on what true love is.
