What a buzy week. I swear I have never been this tired between the Olympics and all of our outings. The kids too - Aidan slept from 7 pm to 8:30 am on Friday night and Emmy slept through also! Let's not get too excited because she woke up again last night at her usual 3 am. The good news is that she only has two more teeth to go so maybe after that is all done she will sleep.
Anyway - on Wednesday Aidan, Emmy and I
went to the Capitol for a little visit while Addy went to a yoga class
with Amy in the city. There was a lot of security and we couldn't go up
the stairs which was a big disappointment for Aidan. It was probably a
good thing because it was getting hot by the time we left. We'll have
to go back when it's cooler!On
Thursday night Brendan's work had a night at Nationals' Park. We met
Brendan there and watched the first 5 innings or so. Emmy was only
happy when she got to sit on her own seat: Once Daddy and the popcorn arrived she and Aidan were both very happy!
Here is the view from our seats - way up in the clouds but at least there was lots of room for noisy kids!There
was also a random guy with this owl from some wildlife outreach
program. The owl was beautiful but the guy looked like he got the job
from his parole officer after doing 3 to 5. I think Emmy had more teeth
than he did! Aidan kept asking if the owl was real and would freak out
when it blinked or ruffled it's feathers. I have to admit it was
pretty cool. I've never been that close to an owl before!
