mom & dad's dc

my mom grew up in maryland, near DC and both she and my dad went to college in DC- it's where they met:) on our trip we got to see some of their old stomping grounds. our hotel was one block down from where the school and dorms used to be. here is the street:

here is treasury dept. where they used to work

thanks for the stories and the tour mom & dad!

washington DC

my mom, dad, sister, ollie & i went back east to dc and to introduce ollie to his great granny hilda! it was a quick trip, thursday-sunday, and ollie was sick:( but all things considered he did a great job traveling and it was a fun trip!

hello mr. president!
you can see ollie is not too thrilled, perhaps he is a republican.
almost asleep...
he finally passed out; too much excitement for him
he was not too happy when he woke up.

a burst of energy when he saw the water.more pep in his step after another dose of tylenolarlington national cemetery. there were signs everywhere that said, "silence and respect"...ollie did not read the signs:)

PART TWO: Meeting Great-Granny Hilda

ollie really looks like my mom in these photos:)

i am so glad we got to spend time with my mom's family. it was great to see them and introduce them to ollie:)

easter egg hunt 2010

on good friday, we attended a big easter egg hunt. ollie was a pro at finding, and re-hiding eggs. after all, hide-n-seek is his favorite game:)
