Spring Break in D.C.

At BYU, we never had Spring Break. Cornell does not hate all holidays though! We had a very intense Spring Break in Washington D.C. It was completely full of sight-seeing and playing with long-lost friends! It was so much fun and we are already looking forward to next year!

The goal was to earn more money on this trip than we spent. It didn't end up working that way but we were close! The grand total of this vacation was...

Monday, March 22nd
Holocaust Museum, Supreme Court Building, Library of Congress, Capitol Building, National Museum of American History, White House

Tuesday, March 23rd
Mount Vernon, Arlington National Cemetery, Iwo Jima/Marine Corps War Memorial, Air Force Memorial, Pentagon Memorial, Ben's Chili Bowl

Wednesday, March 24th
National Archives Experience, National Museum of Natural History, Naval Memorial, Air and Space Museum, Botanic Garden

A Chinese man at the Botanic Garden came up and asked to take a picture of Alex. I wish I had taken a picture of him taking a picture. It cracked me up.

Off we go to campus again.

I participated in a Consumer Product Focus Group on campus a couple weeks ago. It was fun but it really messed up Alex's schedule. Which is probably why we got in a fight the next day. P.S. We are friends again.

Time to go get on the bus!

Alex played with cars for the first time!

After the focus group, we played cards in the graduate student lounge.

Alex kept bending our cards so we shunned him to the other side of the room.


I spy with my little eye something that is puréed.

Alex has tried quite a few new foods. Green beans were his favorite! I was very surprised. He ate an entire jar of Oatmeal & Pears with Cinnamon in a day. That was the first time he had done that. He is still nursing very well but he isn't gaining any weight! He has solids twice a day. I have really liked most of the solid foods so far but Sam doesn't like very many of them at all!
