The Air Force Memorial

 Since it's starting to get a little warmer, the boys and I have been going on little field trips while the girls are at dance class on Monday afternoons.  The Air Force Memorial is right down the road from dance and we had never been there before.  It was really nice and had a great view of the Pentagon. We'll have to go back once it starts really warming up and the trees have leaves on them!

3rd Grade International Night

 Emmy had her 3rd Grade International Night and Dance tonight!  They had all learned a dance and then we went into the cafeteria to eat lots of different foods that people had brought in.  Usually I hate potlucks but all of the food that I tried was really good!  Everyone had a great time - it's fun to let the kids kind of run around and play with their friends.  I remember how fun it was to go to school at night!!

Aidan is 11!!

 Aidan got the BEST birthday present - a snow storm on his birthday - and a day off from school - AND having his cousins here for his birthday!  We slept in a little bit, opened presents, had cinnamon buns, played in the snow, watched movies and ate cake!
   I wish all birthdays were like that - so much fun!  It's incredible that he is 11 already.  He is getting so tall and so responsible and mature.  It's going to be a breeze heading to middle school next year - he is so ready to go!

Air & Space Museum with Cousins

 Aunt Siobhan, the kids and Mimi drove down to visit us this weekend!  They were pretty tired from the drive but we made an afternoon trip out to visit the Air and Space Museum by Dulles.  We knew that there was going to be a snowstorm the next day so we had to get out and do something fun!!  The kids had a good time running around although it was a little more crowded than I'm used to!!
