Sorry, kids. I fell behind on blogging our trip. It was too much fun. You all make anywhere fun. I know how hard it is for us to travel as such a large crew, but you are always up for our fast paced adventures. I am so grateful for that.
You bigs did a great job of helping tote the littles. You hoisted them onto your backs when they were tired. You took people to the potty every time you noticed an emergency. You never complained about the lack of funds for eating out. You were so patient with our ‘PB&J on the fly’ diet, because these littles never sit still. I see you middles too, becoming bigs, by watching what they do, and I love it.
Here are a few pics from the last two days of our adventures. We did so much! Tess loves to “wander”, and wander we did.
Some members of the family were more interested in having their pics taken then in looking at the exhibits. We wandered to the American History Museum to stand in front of the Woolworth’s Lunch Counter.
We wandered back toward the Mall so we could see everything from the opposite viewpoint. We saw the WWII Memorial for my Grandma. We sent her a pic where Cate did NOT have her finger up her nose. But, for our archival purposes, kids, here she is, in all her 5-year-old glory. Oh, Cate. We closed out our visit with a trip to the MLK Memorial. It was a perfect way to end our time in DC. And, this pic sums up all my hopes for you all. Be fearless, and always remember the people who came before you. You are your ancestors wildest dreams. –FullPlateMom, who can’t wait to see where we wander next.
