Washington Favorites

This little buddy had as much fun as the older two. He is getting so big.

We stopped at MORA to get some ice cream. It was the best ice cream I have ever had. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they get a cookbook out sometime so I can get in on the secret.

My kids love the sand box.
We finally got to see the reenactment. We have always wanted to g…
