You know it is a good weekend when you are asleep on the couch at 9:15pm on Sunday AND when at 7:30am Monday your child is still asleep.
Our weekend was filled with crazy weather, old friends, a ton of walking and lots of laughs!
Saturday was our day with crazy weather. It rained and rained and rained. Luckily we were headed to the Baltimore Aquarium. Everyone raves about the aquarium but for the price of the ticket, we certainly did not think it was worth it. Don't get me wrong Henry loved the shark tanks and the dolphins but unless we missed something there wasn't much else there. It was also about 900 degrees in there and you can't bring strollers. Carrying a 30 pound kid around is not all that easy. Yes, of course he could walk but to see most of the stuff he had to be picked up.
After the aquarium we met our friends at M&S Grill. They came down to visit us for the weekend. We were all suppose to go to the aquarium but with traffic and the weather it just did not work out. After a drink and Henry spilling an entire cup of water we headed home. Henry decided to finally nap at 5pm.
Sunday we were up bright and early and were headed downtown to DC. The weather was PERFECT! Sunny skies and warmth. We checked out A museum and the Archives. Henry loved the steps at the archives while Daddy and the rest of the group waited in line.
After that we ate a quick lunch outside and headed over to the White House. I'm not sure when this started but you could not go up to the gates of the White House anymore. You were a gate, a sidewalk, a street, another sidewalk and a Jersey barrier away from it. It was a little annoying but needless to say we got our pics.
After some pictures we were on our walking way to the World War II Memorial. Probably one of my favorites. The kids were getting tired and I think the adults were too. So after a walk around the Memorial we went home.
After dinner our friends left and I was sad to see them go but knew I would see them soon. I also realized that we didn't get a picture of all of us together!
Soon after I started cleaning up a little, and realized I was exhausted. I sat on the couch and was asleep no later then 9:30pm. All that walking and catching up must have knocekd me out.
This week is going to be BUSY, BUSY, BUSY! Friday all the family rolls in for a fun Easter weekend and we can't wait!
