Washington DC – 2016 with the Hameloths

As soon as we knew our dates, I quickly started arranging to meet up with our east coast friends/family while we were there. We started out by spending a couple of days with the Hameloth’s who traveled to China with us in 2011.

First time on the Metro.

We started our day at the Air and Space Museum.

Logan and Dani on our way to the Natural History Museum.

Ava and her Texas Armadillo.

It started to rain when we were leaving the museum and we bought some cheap umbrellas from a smart guy on the sidewalk. He was selling water until it started to rain, then changed out to umbrellas. Much cheaper than buying one at the museum.

Then we had a tasty dinner at Ollies Trolley! It was just as good as all the reviews said. It was such a wonderful day with friends that we hadn’t seen since 2013. They hadn’t met Dani yet and all the kids were so big.

Driving to DC – July 2016

In 2016 one of my adoptive mom friends offered us the use of her condo in DC  for 2 weeks while she had to go to a long work training. We jumped at the chance to take the girls! It was going to take us 2 days to drive each way.

Day 2 at the hotel in Nashville.

When we got to Caitlin’s this wonderful Edible Arrangement was waiting for us. It was wonderful after driving for 2 days.

New Years Eve 2016

We started New Years by heading to the Science and History museum and seeing the remodel of the dinosaur area. It is really cool!

The girls had a rest in the afternoon to prepare for the New Years Eve party we were going to.

BFF’s!
