I didn't mean to go leave this blog for so long! My last post was October so it has been way too long! Time flies when you're having fun right? ;)
Well, it is currently 12:45am on an early Wednesday morning and I'm wide awake. I guess the much needed glass of wine at 8pm followed by the cat nap did not help me at all! The kiddos were in rare form this evening. This meant early bedtime for them and early relaxation for me. Oh well, lots of coffee in the morning is always the best cure.
What have we been up to? Well, we did move to a different house in June. Hallelujah!!! This place has been wonderful and we have some really great neighbors. Some may be asking why we moved. To make it short, the other house wasn't taken care of and the landlords shouldn't be landlords. Done and done! I could go on and on to catch everyone up with our life here in DC, but I think pictures are more fun for that. :) Here you go!

|Ava is asleep and won't let anyone hold her but me. Dylan is in between his good friend Sarah and her sister Taylor.|
We took a trip down to Norfolk. One of our activities was the Children's Museum. Dylan's favorite thing was the police motorcycle. Ava liked shopping at the grocery store.
On the way back to DC, we met up with some good friends from AZ that now live in VA too! Yep, we're at Build-a-Bear. Ava was more engaged this time!

I'll try to be better about this blog from now on. It is now 1:45am and I'm going to try to sleep. Wish me luck!!
