Great Day to Start 2013

Today we played "hookie".  I don't know what that means... there were no hooks anywhere.  But we did go into the White House, played in the Natural History Museum, and then went ice skating for the first time!! 

Why does the president have an obsession with colors?  White House, Green Room, Red Room, Blue Room, and the State Room which should have been named the Yellow Room. You'd think he was just trying to help teach Davin his colors!!  We have no pictures of the White House or the rest of the day because you're not allowed cameras... or really much of anything else... no purses, no backpacks, no diaper bags, no bathrooms, no strollers, no stun guns, no pepper spray...

After the little tour of the White House (and no we didn't see President Obama or any of the Obamas), we went to renew my passport. We're getting ready early to go to Croatia to Petra and Adrian's wedding!!  I can't wait.  I bet I'll even get a new twirly dress for the occasion. Davin liked the old post office station we were in to renew the passport better than the White House.

Then our usual trip to the Natural History Museum... Mommy realized that she's super close to the museum and Cara works there... so Cara if you read this post... email Mommy so she can get out of the office for lunch!!

The best part of the day was ice skating!! It was a cold day. But it was sunny and not windy. It was really beautiful 'skating' outside in the Sculpture Garden. Usually we just watch the skaters, but this time we were joined them. And even better, I didn't fall that much (mostly Mommy & Daddy caught me). Davin made it around the rink twice. I did more. We even let Mommy & Daddy have a couple of rounds be grown up time. Fun was had by all.

We don't know about the "hookie" part; but, the rest of the day sounded fantastic! We especially liked the ice skating part (the not falling down is always good). As for going to Croatia, what a great treat. Nana Lynn and I were there in 2011 and really liked it. I know you will too (the wedding and all). Go Enjoy!!!
