This past weekend Olivia and I ventured up to Maryland and DC to spend time with one of my best friends and her family. Friday night we didn’t get there until around 11pm or so. Of course after the kids went to bed we broke out the alcohol. I had a really good Strawberry Margarita. The next day we all got up early and got the kids ready for the trip to DC and the zoo. We made breakfast and ate then headed on the road. We had to travel to Silver Spring (which I did use to live there too when I was younger) and then parked the van for the metro station. We took the metro to the zoo and the kids had an amazing time on it. They all behaved themselves too. Then we walked 4 blocks to get to the zoo. Overall we had a good time and plan on going back to DC next time we’re up there and taking the kids to the National Mall. It should be fun again. Sunday we went over to Lauren’s Moms house and had a good luck party for her sister who was leaving for basic boot camp this week. We played volleyball and let the kids play on the slip and slide. Monday we drove back home. I wish we had a Wawa here because I have to say they have some of the best coffee out there besides Dunkin’ Donuts.
I can’t wait until we plan for our 2nd trip to Maryland. It’s going to be great. We will have a lot of fun for sure!!! I do have a few pictures posted on my facebook account but have to get them over to here. Will plan on doing that later on though. Have to get dressed and ready for a doctors appointment. I have seemed to have gotten sick while away. Oh well…I still had an awesome time up there!
