What We've Been Up To!

I am going to try to get all caught up on posting pictures from the past few weeks. I have taken a ton of pictures though...so this may take a few posts. Last week, we had some special visitors. Uncle Danny, Aunt Ali, and Tanner came to see us! Jackson was so excited when they pulled into the driveway. He couldn't get to the door fast enough. It was so cute to see them hug each other and be so happy to see one another. We spent the week doing lots of sightseeing, hitting many of the DC hotspots, and, of course, playing lots inside and outside. The weather was perfect for their visit. The first day we headed into the city to see some monuments and go to the Museum of Natural History. Little did we realize that all of the East Coast was on spring break that week, and I think all of them were in DC. So the traffic was a little crazier and everything was VERY busy. The boys had a good time checking out the dinosaurs and other animals at the museum. The next day we headed to the Air and Space Museum that is out by Dulles Airport. The kids loved being in the control tower and watching the planes land. And of course, seeing the space shuttle. Jackson was naming all the rockets he saw too. Tiny bit obsessed still with all things space. On Wednesday, we knew the weather was going to get bad that afternoon, so we decided to go to the zoo for the morning. I guess everyone else in the city had the same idea. The parking lot was full by 10:30. But we still got in and saw some animals. And the weather man was wrong again. It never rained. Oh well...
We really enjoyed the visit and can't wait to see everyone again.

Being silly!

Jackson said he was going to draw and "H' on home plate. He drew two perfect "H's"!

Time for Tennis!

He was actually pretty good at hitting the balls!
