GEARING UP-ONE WEEK!!

In just one week we will be on our way to Washington DC for a 5 day getaway!

We are soooo excited that the Lord has presented us with such an amazing opportunity. If you remember, we won free airline miles last year and were able to get our family round trip tickets to and from DC. We also are blessed to know an amazing couple who are willing to let us stay at their home and use their vehicle during our stay. GOD IS GOOD! We are also excited our Nana will be joining us!

We have studied DC and planned out our agenda during our time there. We plan to see the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, will check out the Smithsonian, shop at the Eastern Market, visit the National Arboretum, take a day trip to Colonial Williamsburg, see the city lights at night, and lots more.

IF anyone has been to Washington DC and has some wisdom, or any pointers or favorite places to eat- please share! We want to get the most out of this trip as possible!!

More DC posts to come!!



And when we say "gearing up" we mean it! We have suitcases, and laundry, and all kinds of stuff to be packed!!

how exciting... I would pass out from all the excitement... then again I would never get anything done either. I hope you all have a BLAST!!! I will be praying for the kids that they will be able to keep up with mommy and daddy...or vise versa. hehe. Can't wait for pictures and details.

love y'all

So fun, y'all are going to love it! Jeff and I went in March to see Baylor play in the NCAA tournament and had a great time. I only wish we could have stayed longer to visit more places.

We did a monument bus tour which was cool. It had several buses running, so you could get off at the monuments you wanted to spend more time at and then wait for another bus to pick you up to continue the tour.

We also went to an awesome fast food hamburger place called Five Guys Hamburgers. It was soooo good.

I'll have to ask Jeff if he has anymore ideas or favorite places. It was one of my favorite trips and I hope to go back someday.
