Jack's 2nd trip to DC

We thought it would be fun to go visit Bruce and Jamie in DC. We were right! We took Friday off of work and left early so that we could stop at the Baltimore Aquarium. We figured Jack would love to see all the fishies. Despite the torrential rain on the way down it was an uneventful drive. And, as luck would have it, it stopped raining when we got to Baltimore (and didn't start again until we were on our way home on Sunday).

Jack DID love the fishies... for about the first 30 minutes. LOL. I guess to a 2 year old all the fish start to look the same after a while. And I think after being in the car for so long he needed to really run around and stretch his legs... so he did... in the lobby...

After the aquarium we were on to DC and Bruce and Jaime's house. We were worried that he would be shy because he hadn't spent a lot of time with Bruce or Jaime and he's never been to their house but apparently we had nothing to worry about. Little stinker made himself right at home and couldn't have been happier there.

The rest of friday was low-key with just a quick trip to Target to get bedtime books that I forgot to pack. Of course Jack managed to make even a quick Target trip exciting by falling off the back of the cart and bloodying his lip.

Saturday was a layed-back tour of DC. We made it to the museum of natural history to see the dinosaurs but that didn't last too long. We saw that they had an insect exhibit and that was a hit. Jack loved the big spiders and was showing them to anyone that happened by. On our walk back we did get to go on the Carousel. Jack had never been on one before and he was just grinning from ear to ear.

Saturday evening was pleasant with Jack helping to water plants on the back patio and sweeping up under the bird feeder. I tell ya, this kid can't stand a mess.

Sunday morning it was time to go home but I'd like to say that it was a great weekend all around.
