This past week, Jack and I were able to go back East and get spoiled by my parents. We're sad that Derek wasn't able to come, but we made the most out the trip anyway. I've been itching to go back East and get my fill of the museums, the trees, walks, and the East Coast flair.
The flight going out was a bit rough....no milk and a dead DVD battery will do that to you. But we arrived safely and pulled up to this....
who can complain about that, right?
but we do complain about these eating the flowers and jumping in front of the car...however, Jack loved looking for the deer!
We did a lot of just hanging out at the house, shopping, exploring, and driving to various destinations.
watching King Kong with Grandpa
playing fireman with Grandma
Sunday dinner with friends Shannon and Callie
downtown Rockville after getting breakfast
The great thing about D.C. is that everything is free! One morning we went and explored the Zoo. Unfortunately the monkey's were nowhere to be found, but we had fun seeing everything else.
reading up about cows
looking for turtles....one of the latest obsessions....
wanting to climb in with the pandas
We also went to the American History Museum. It has been redone in the last few years, and has a lot of neat exhibits and sound effects. The weather was beautiful, the crowds were few, and we enjoyed walking around downtown.
One of my all-time favorite places....Georgetown! I absolutely love it there- the shopping, the buildings, the houses, everything!
On a walk down by the C&O Canal/Potomac River. I got the chance to run down there, walk, and of course do the Billy Goat Trail with my Dad!
I love driving through the country on the way to Luckett's to do some antique shopping. It is so beautiful our there!
Jack was LOVING all of the space in the house and the yard. We lucked out with nice weather and only had one really hot day. So, we busted out the sprinklers and let him run through for the first time. It made for some great pictures!
