After the rally, we had a day to spend seeing the sights. We headed to the Air & Space Museum to see the Space Shuttle and other cool aircraft.
I love this photo!Chris joined us too.
Daddy had to fly to Boston for a week but I stayed with the boys for a few extra days. We went trick-or-treating again! Lucas was done after about 5 houses which was perfect. Adam (our friends son) had never had candy and didn't understand the whole tradition. Axel was happy once his hands were full.
A big thanks to Dana & Phil & Adam for opening up their home for us. It was wonderful to catch up and we really appreciated the hospitality.
Here's the crew, Dana, Adam (Tiger), Mommy, Axel (Yoda) & Lucas (GI Joe Snake Eyes)
Adam just assumed we would go inside each house.
After a quick outing, it was tasting time.
Check out these eyes!
Here's one tired boy...
Which one first?
The next day we met a dear, dear friend and former boss. Mildred Bonilla is near and dear to my heart. The boys and I made the journey downtown to have lunch with her. I went prepared; I stopped by Target on the way and purchased some Bakugans (cool little magnetic robots) which kept the boys busy...they were angels!
Our last day in D.C. was spent at the National Zoo. Lucas loved the octopus and this one sure was active.
The jellyfish were also high on his list of favs.
Axel was completely enamored by the big fish! He was SO excited and kept pointing and talking all about it.
The real treat for Mommy was getting to see her dear friend Sara. Sara and I met back in 2002 while deployed together back in our Air Force days. It was so fun to see her and her two beautiful girls. I should have taken a better photo of the three of them. Here they are checking out the cocoa tree.
Cruisin' around the zoo...Lucas was in good hands!
I thought this bug was pretty cool, it was made out of real beetles.
Lucas was insistent that we see the flamingos too. The poor little guys WERE FREEZING!
Here's my girl! Love you Sara!
