{AWAY IN D.C. PART 11...}

we just finished our first round of pool fun for the day, taking a quick break for lunch, which gives me a few moments to post a few more pictures from our weekend away in D.C. a few weeks ago. we had so much fun and can not wait to get away again. on our second day out we decided to stop by a few museums and monuments. and while i wish i had called on a few of our favs from D.C. to show us around, we still had a good time getting "lost" in the city. 

we made our way through the butterfly garden after stopping by the peoples garden and taking pics to share with the babies when we get home. 

i happened to really enjoy visiting the Asian-American & African-American Museums while BDH was just happy to make it to the Air & Space Museum. 

i couldn't help but FaceTime the babies to show them how cool the museum was. The Lady Baby answered my FaceTime call while she was in the crib supposedly taking a "nap". LOL

we heading back to the hotel for a quick dip in the empty pool, which was nice. 

then we stopped by for dinner and that crab bisque tho!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so so very good. 

we can't wait for more adventures alone this year (because every single married couple needs it so very much).

also, you can check out our vlog of day 2 HERE...

{A LITTLE PHILLY & A TRAIN...}

i say no to everything at first. I'm often tired and my mind is always occupied by task that need to be completed and thoughts of days ahead. but I've really been trying to work on being present. just the right here and right now. and the way my sister is set up...lol. she likes to bypass my initial "NO's" and take the plans right to BDH. and that is exactly how she played it this time around. off of work at the last minute, plus a beautiful day outside, equals a little fun for all in PHILLY!

thanks to tia, we got a quick picture of the five of us :) i have to start remembering to do this more, its just that it can be such a task to get all five of us to cooperate. the struggle??..... yep, its real!

we packed lots of snacks, set up on a bench nearby and let them roam. such a cute little spot in the heart of the city. must do this again real soon
