Storm Filled Mother's Day

For Mother's Day we went to Storm King Art Center. It was great to be outdoors with the family and walk around all the amazing exhibits they had strewn across the land.

Afterwards we had a delicious dinner at Caterbury Brook Inn.

A Family That Runs Together...

For the first time all four of us ran the local 5k derby together. In the past I would run the 5k with Eason, and Aviva would run the one mile "fun run" with Andrea. But since Andrea was able to run 3.5 miles with me in practice a couple of weeks ago, she was eager to try it in a real race. Her goal was to run the entire race, no matter how much she had to slow down. Meanwhile, my goal was to keep up with Eason, which might be hard considering I had not trained at all.

Greenwich Point Park

We went to Greenwich Point Park and walked around by the water. It was great to be outdoors.

National Zoo

On the fifth and final day of our spring break trip we went to the Smithsonian's National Zoological Park. It wasn't as big as the Bronx Zoo, but we were really impressed. We saw the giant pandas, the primates, and our favorite part was probably Amazonia.

On our way home we saw some Seegulls (but not the animal kind). We swung by my cousin Larry's house in Baltimore for a quick visit.

Rockin' & Spyin' In D.C.

On the fourth day of our spring break trip we went to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and spent at least two hours looking at rocks, from meteorites to minerals to crystals. We only looked at the animals a little. Then we spent the second half of the day at the International Spy Museum. They had a 007 exhibit, so I'm glad we've been watching some James Bond movies.

D.C By Foot: Monuments & Memorials

On the third day of our spring break trip we took a Walking Tour of the National Mall & Tidal Basin. Our tour guide, Erin, was great and the kids had a lot of fun with her. We went to the Washington Monument, the National WWII Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the Tidal Basin, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. Then we walked to the Albert Einstein Memorial and finally to get some dinner in Foggy Bottom. Over six hours of walking altogether!

Air & Space & Art

On the second day of our spring break trip we headed to D.C. We took the Metro in and went to Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. We saw the sights, listen to a lecture, went on a simulator, watched a film, and went to the observatory. Then, after a quick bite (God forbid my kids should have to eat McDonald's) we went to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. I never would have thoughts my kids would enjoy it so much more that the Air and Space Museum. Afterwards we took the Metro and trolley back to Alexandria for dinner.

Babcia's Birthday

We took babcia out for dinner for her birthday. She always enjoys spending time with her family, especially with all her grandchildren. She had a great time, and so did we.

Palisades Climb Adventure

We went to the Palisades Climb Adventure at the Palisades Center. I was too afraid to go climbing myself, but my kids weren't. They were fearless...almost. Once the got the hang of things, they were zipping all around. I got a lot of video. It's probably a good thing I ran out of storage.
