DC and Back!

The whole fam took a trip to DC this weekend. Some of the highlights:

Turns out I get air sick. Who woulda thunk? Dramamine became my best friend.

Airplane bathrooms are small. Even smaller when you cram an adult AND preschooler inside that wants to touch everything. And seemingly smaller when your preschooler misses the potty and you have to mop up the floor with the hand towels.

The Washington Monument and Capital building are a blur when you have 40 pounds to lug around on your hip.

$40 buys you two sandwiches and a cup of jello at the Natural History Museum cafe. No wonder it's free to get in.

The national zoo is big, and hilly. This makes carrying the twins all the more exhausting. But so worth it to see them excited over all the animals.

We got to meet the Diaz Duo in the flesh! It was crazy taking four 3 year olds to the zoo, but if anyone can do it, we can!

The twins made it through 4 flights and 4 time zones with no potty accidents and no diapers! We used airport bathrooms, airplane bathrooms, zoo bathrooms, museum bathrooms and hotel bathrooms. I think the only place we didn't pee was the metro. They loved the metro too. Tom always wanted to ride the blue line because Thomas the Tank Engine is blue.

And at last, the pics.

I love the pictures, especially the ones of the kids sleeping at the end. I also love the pictures of the capitol, space museum and monument and zoo. I used to go to all those places at least once a month. I used to go down on the Mall and read and walk around on the weekends. I love DC - glad you had fun!
