hanging on the steps
Today me and the two little girls met Jeff and Annie Kate downtown after they hung out with the Young Men from church in the morning. We had a "healthy" lunch and Ben's Chili bowl. I am in total self portrait mode and can not stop taking photos of myself! Can't wait for Tuesday!
Then went across the street to the African American Civil War Museum. It is really only two rooms, but quite interesting and so good to spark some conversation with Annie Kate. The docent had a tour coming in so we had to cut it short, but glad we went in.
We had plans to go the Hirshorn Art Museum but were amazed how how many tour buses are here taking all of our parking spots! Tis the D.C. season. So we went to the Jefferson Memorial and just hung out!
As we walked up there was a high school band getting ready to perform on the steps! how lucky were we.
what is worse than keeping track of one soupie? keeping track of two. Sally Jane has two soupie's. We had brought them in the stroller to keep the kids warm (as they don't usually get to see the monuments) and Sally Jane just kept dragging them all around. They went home straight to the wash.
They played every great American song you can think of. Even Neil Diamonds, "America"
While playing a White House helicopter flew over us and had someone waving out the open window.
the girls just kept running along the steps, back and forth, back and forth.Sally Jane got tired.and then laid down on the steps.I love this photo of Jeff and Caroline at the top of the Jefferson Memorial over looking to the Washington Monument. Caroline has such passion towards the Washington Monument, she calls it the big top.
So, yet another great Saturday and what feels the best of the day, is that is documented to never be forgotten! (one of the few family photos, i need to be better at getting people to take our photos
