New Years' Day in DC

The week after Christmas my sister Loree and her little people paid us a visit. We got to play for a few days and for one of them we went down to DC. Our first stop was at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. There is so much to see and so many cool exhibits to walk through. There is never enough time in places like this.

After that, we still enough energy and sunshine to walk down the Mall to the Washington Monument. It was a beautiful and chilly day, but not too shabby for the 30th of December.

Max is the little brother Et never had. They sure have a great time together.
I've been telling everyone that Esther is growing like a weed. Now do you believe me?!

Jon wore Esthers' scarf most of the time we were walking the Mall. Only he could pull it off and still look dashing.

Next, we hurried down to the Lincoln Memorial, one of my personal favorites. 

It was late in the day, so with tired children and dead camera batteries we decided to call it a day.  We'll visit again in the spring when the cherry blossoms are in bloom.
