Visitors are so fun

We got to play DC tourists last weekend in this beautiful weather! Since Eli & Mia thought the visit was all for them, I'm posting the photos on their blog. My cousin Staci came up with her husband for a school project and Eli & Mia were delighted to learn that they have "ANOTHER" cousin. Staci got to experience soccer mom life (literally) by hanging out during carpool drop offs, kids napping, grocery store, dinner making, soccer practice & a soccer game!

All this when DC was down the road beckoning, "I have sites you need to come see!" She was such a good sport. We did get to see most of the monuments on Saturday. (Did you know Abraham Lincoln's hands are forming the sign language "A" and "L"?)

We ran into a mounted policeman on the mall.

And I got to see a bit of Georgetown University, that I've never seen before.

Also, I can't say enough what sweet house guests Staci & Ryan were. They were endlessly playing with Eli & Mia, reading books, building train sets, playing playdough, ETC., ETC., ETC.! We have such great extended family. When Mia sees pictures of Staci, now, her face lights up and she says, "THAT'S MY COUSIN, STACI!!!!!!!!"

Oh what fun pics! I can't believe we were there last weekend, it seems like we were just there yesterday. It was fun to play games with them and i'm happy to hear they can add another cousin to the list! :)
