So I recently took a trip and visited my sister in our wonderful Nation's capital. Jonathan and I found this really great deal on a plane ticket, so he was kind enough to let me go for a week. I really can't believe how much my nephews have grown! Pretty crazy. We had a good time and it was really fun to hang out. While there though I did get to see some fun stuff...

Zara!! Coolest store ever. I found Jonathan a great tie here.

I also got to watch Spencer play soccer...so fun!

We went to the National Zoo and I got to see the Pandas!!! There were the Giant Pandas and the Red Pandas. So cute! I really wanted to take one home with me.

While driving downtown, Kim made me take a picture of this license plate. We thought it was pretty funny.

And then here are just some cute pictures of the boys.

Grant in the tub with a rock...

Grant just being cute...

Max splashing himself in the fountain by the White House.

I know this is random, but this duck was crazy. They were bobbing for something. Anyway, I thought it was cool.

Anyway, those were some of the highlights of my trip, not to mention getting Kim and Chris hooked on Heroes and Chocolate Rain, pedicures, awesome brownies, and dying Kim's hair. I just wish that getting back was as fun and easy as being there, but I think we will save that story for another post.

Yet another blog in the airport. I am on my way back to Iowa and am stuck in Chicago. Not completely stuck though, just held hostage for 5 hours. My flight was cancelled and the next available flight isn't until 9:30. Boo. I was supposed to be flying into Quad Cities at 3:30... now I fly in at 10:15. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb. They never even said why the flight was cancelled. All I have to say is that I am tired of airports having Coke and no Pepsi, and McDonalds and no Burger King. That would at least make things a little less crappy. Oh Well. Hopefully my flight is on time and I can finally get home. Once again, boo for airports today.

So I have some time to kill, be it that it is 5:30 am and I am waiting for my 6:00 am flight to leave. So early...I am trying to remember why I though that it was a good idea to leave this early. Oh well. Poor Jonathan was up until almost 1 am working on his crazy hard homework, so he barely got any sleep last night. Sad. All is well though. I get to visit Kim and stay there for a week. I'm way excited. I have never been to D.C. Should be an adventure. Let you know how it goes!!
