D.C.~ Day 1

My sister and her family are visiting Washington D.C. for the month of January as caretakers of our church.

I thought it would be fun to take the kids to D.C. for a long weekend. 

We left Friday amidst the snowstorm that hit the Midwest.  It typically takes a little less than 6 hours to drive to D.C.  It took us 8. 

We had been hoping to leave around 5 am and get there in time for lunch and spend the afternoon at a park.  But we didn't leave until 8:45 am hoping the roads would be clear.  They weren't.

Seeing that we arrived in the D.C. area at a quarter til five, we opted to just meet them at a park. 

They have found that the parks in the area have some amazing things to play on.  From a large rubber dome to run up and down to incredibly long slides.

Little Yah! (Kya).  Look at these lilac-blue eyes!! 

After the park we went back to the church/house for dinner.  The cousins played together while Kurt, Kelly and I chatted.  Soon we put the kiddos to bed and headed that way ourselves.  It was a tiring but fun day.  We went to bed looking forward to visiting the city the next day.
