This week we had some dear friends from Providence come for a visit! On Thursday we all went down to D.C. to walk around some of the museums. Here is Nick with the first Muppets, a cherished childhood memory :), and below is Cole and I with Dorthy's ruby slippers.
We went to the American History museum to see the American flag the Star Spangled banner was written about, some fun pop culture artifacts, and behold, it came to pass that we happened upon a LDS section about the Mormons and the Nauvoo temple! Crazy seeing it right there, in the Smithsonian, as part of American history. I thought that was neat-o.
We had lunch at this place, which the name has escaped me, but I had the BEST sandwich of my life, which is saying a lot because I don't like sandwiches very much...After that we did the Air and Space museum where Nick did his best to get Colette to take a nap. And then we hit up the carousel! She was scared of it this time...So Nick rode the horse with her. haha. That little horse was hanging on for dear life with this 6'4" man on it!
Colette loves bracelets, necklaces, earrings, any kind of jewelry. So we bit the bullet and spent $2 on a bracelet for her. (so she'd stop losing mine) She loved it, and put it on, pulled it off, chewed on it, and stared at it intensely, until she threw a fit and tossed it somewhere...Never to be found again. Next time I'll just tie $1 on her wrist and call it a bracelet and save 50%.
That was our great day in D.C.! The weather was good, the company was great, and we all had a great night sleep! There are many things I miss about Providence, and the Resch family is one of them!
