Trip to D.C.

We went to D.C./Maryland for UEA break. It was so nice to spend time with Jordan and meet the people she has been working as a nanny for. She asked me what my favorite thing that we did was. Mostly it was just spending time with her, because I know that our time with having her as just ours is running out and one day she will belong to someone else. I know that is what we want for our children, but letting go is hard. Enjoying them as adults is easier though. The pictures are from the many sites we went to. I have to say the FDR Memorial was definitely my most favorite. I was able to see a bit of the man and president that he was, very touching. Jordan also took us to Cirque de Soleil. We decided it was an adult circus, even though that sounded like it was kind of a naughty show. Thanks again, Jordan, we had a blast. And we went to the Temple with her neighbors across the street. It was comforting to know that my kids were in good hands at home. Thanks Niki for taking time off of work for us to take this trip.

  1. Were you surprised how humongous the Iwo Jima statue was? We had no idea it was that big until we visited it. Sounds like you had a lot of fun.
