It was a complete blessing to visit Virginia and Washington DC last week! Our kids were amazing travelers, tolerating the 13 hour trip with great attitudes. (I always say, and it’s true, that my kids are more patient travelers than I am!) We were only able to see about half of the things on our list, but we thuroughly enjoyed what we did see. (If you ever take a trip to the area, I highly recommend 2 weeks to soak up all the history and beauty!) Ashton turned 5 years old on Sunday so we also squeezed in a birthday celebration!
