When the Cat's Away . . .

So Mommy has been in Utah since Thursday morning. We took advantage of the rare time we get to have Daddy all to ourselves. Here is the play-by-play of today in pictures.

We started out the day after eating breakfast by cleaning Mia's room:Then we cleaned Eli's room:

We made mommy & daddy's bed.
Then while we were at it, we cleaned downstairs:
Mia got carried away with the wet wipes.After we finished with the house we went to Washington D.C. to visit the National Aquarium. Eli got hungry on the way, so we decided to stop and eat by the Post Office Pavilion, across from the FBI headquarters. . . .
We had peanut butter sandwiches and bananas.It was nice to get some shade from this tree and this building.Aren't we crazy!?

The acquarium was lots of fun. We saw all kinds of fishies, sharks, turtles and crocodiles.

On the way to the Metro, we stopped near that Washington Monument to have a snack.
And then we went in to have a closer look.
And of course, we stopped for plenty of potty breaks. Half of a trip like this, for daddy, is potty management and planning. Fortunately, there were no accidents.
All-in-all, it was a really fun day. We miss mommy lots, but with all the things we're doing, we hardly have time to think about it. We love you mommy!!

This is so cute, Chris! As much as Natalie is probably enjoying a break, this post would make any mommy miss their kids!
