Philly and D.C.

Sorry for the delay, but I've finally gotten around to posting our pictures from our Philly/D.C. trip from a few weekends ago. I apologize for the lack of pictures, but since this was a quick trip, I spent most of my time chatting with family and chasing kids rather then being my usual paparazi self! We left Saturday morning at midnight after a few hours of sleep and arrived at Brad and Jane's mid-morning. The girls were so happy to finally meet their Great-Aunt Jane and see Great-Uncle Brad again. We had a blast with our extended family and swimming and playing!!

Here's Daddy and our "water-bug," Sadie!
Grammy and Macy!

Surfing, Macy!
Thanks to Brad and Jane for opening up your home to our wild crew!!! We loved seeing you!
On our return from Philly we made a quick stop through D.C. to see Brian's grandparents. The girls were happy to see Great-Grandma Kippy, as they hadn't seen her since they were a few weeks old! She was so thrilled to see how big they have gotten! The girls also got to meet their great-cousin, Nicole, on our trip. Unfortunately the girls weren't allowed back to Great-Grandpa Mort's hospital room, but we were able to enjoy running around the patio area, while Brian visited with his Grandpa. We are so thankful that we made the trip, as sadly, Grandpa Mort passed away a few days later.
You should be grateful to see these next few photos, as we narrowly escaped having our camera confiscated for taking pictures in federal property! Oops...who knew?!?!
Here is Great-Grandma Kippy, enjoying the girls!
Just before our departure from D.C., we stopped at the Old Ebbitt Grille. It was a fabulous recommendation right across from National Treasury and in the heart of the D.C. attractions. The restaurant was recommended by an old college friend of mine and I was so excited when Julie was able to stop in to say hello and meet the girls, as I hadn't seen her since graduating in 2003. In my excitement, I forgot to take a picture!
But, we did however, get a picture of me and the girls at the restaurant. Macy was such a big girl and sat next to me in the booth. She did great!!
