Easter Weekend

A.D. had quite an Easter weekend this year. Nana came down from Virginia on Thursday night then we kicked off the festivities on Saturday by spending the day with our church group hosting an Easter egg hunt at Table Rock State Park. A ton of kids showed up and after watching a few of the older ones, A.D. jumped right in. Saturday night, Lee and Amanda drove up to spend some time with us before A.D.'s baptism on Easter Sunday. We had a few people over Sunday after church for a quick brunch. Overall, don't think A.D. will top that for quite some time, even if he is still probably too young to remember it all.

Tourists in D.C., continued- April 2010

More photos from the top of the Lincoln Memorial. I loved the view from there. Probably boring for most but one of my favorite places we visited.

Waiting for the Natural History Museum to open our first was sooo windy and chilly!
I think this was by the Natural History Museum also, but it has been awhile.

Tourists in D.C.- April 2010

A.D. and I have been to Washington, D.C., many times visiting Tim's family, but we haven't gotten to play tourist very often. To say my education of D.C. was lacking was probably being extremely nice. I had never visited the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, or many of the Smithsonian Museums. So when my parents planned a trip with my grandmother during April, A.D. and I tagged along to see some of the sights. I think we visited almost every major attraction and probably could have stayed another week visiting others. The weather stayed fairly cool but the wind made us keep our coats on for much of the vacation. I had a blast, loved the Metro (during non-peak hours), and decided I could definitely stay (if I didn't have to work). I think between my parents and me we took about 1000 pictures so here are just a few:

I don't think he was supposed to be playing with the art...
