It's easy to forget just how close we live to Washington, DC. With traffic it can take well, it took Kirk 3 hours to get home due to Metro issues! But driving is a good hour or so each way and with parking like it is we rarely go in. Today though, Kirk decided to take Caleb and brave downtown since Kaitlyn was going out with friends. Yes, it was a nice break for me - home with "just" the triplets :)
Riding on the metro:
National Museum of American History:
Lots of fun stuff for kids to do and learn! Here's Caleb "wind-surfing"
Then they went on to the National Museum of Natural History (lots of dinosaurs).
Caleb and a really big dinosaur head :)
Caleb in DC:
On the mall (It'd heard it was in need of some repair - looks like it is).
Looks like they had a lot of fun (except for their long ride home). I'm hoping as the girls get older that we can take them in a little more.
