The beautiful RIO! Oh we’ll miss this place!
Ok, not our best picture. Its been a bit of a challenge getting both kids to look at the camera and smile!

That evening the Linn’s invited us along to their family night at Jimmy Cone. It was a struggle for me to order “jimmies” rather than “sprinkles” but other than that we had a blast!

Then over Memorial Day we finally took the trek to DC as a family to visit the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. We had a great time, though AJ didn’t find it all as exciting as we did! In a few years I’m sure we’ll have to pull him away from all those dinosaur bones! There was also a great parade later that afternoon–Maddie loved waving to everyone. Hey Mom, even Mickey Rooney was there!

Touching real dinosaur bones!

Yummy! The best part of Maddie’s day!
So, we have only 12 days left. Wow. Please pray for us as we try to soak in all that we can these last few days, on top of packing everything! The next few posts I will be doing, Lord willing!, will be an attempt to thank all of the people who made this year so wonderful for us!! So, stay tuned!
