Visit to the East Coast

In February I went to Washington DC for
the Core Know-
ledge National Conference with my school. There were a total of 10 of us that went--it was lots of fun! For DC in February, it wasn't even that cold! We had a great time going to the conference & eating lots & lots of yummy food! The portions are just so big at some restaurants! :) Don't worry, I didn't really eat all of that food--although, I really wanted to because it was sooooo good!

We were also able to tour the White House, courtesy of our local congresswoman. Some of the people I went with don't get out of Colorado much, I think, because the looooonnnnggg escalator rides up and down to the metro stations were a big hit! If you've ever been to DC, you know what I'm referring to--the 4 story long escalators!

After the conference, I was able to go visit Aimee & Gary & Faith & Avery! It was GREAT! A much needed rest for me & so much fun to be with family! We had a great time--I even got to visit Faith's preschool! Avery is a real cutie--she smiles so nicely for the camera, even though she was probably cutting about 2 or 3 teeth!

What fun it was! Now I have to wait till August to see them again...too long between visits with all our family!
