A week of Firsts!






This past week was filled with lots of Firsts! We went on our First trip back east and had lots of First experiences. It was Hailey's First plane trip which was tons of fun since the Benadryl had an opposite affect and she was hyperactive, no napping! Then we were off to NY where we had our First subway ride-we didn't even get mugged. We had our First stroll through central park and basked in the lights of Time Square. We had our First view of New York from the Empire State building. Next we were off to Virginia where we went to our First Pumpkin patch, where we went through our First corn maze, Hailey interacted with her first goat who tried to eat her sweater, we played in our first sand box filled with corn! And in DC we went to our First patriotic moments visiting the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington memorial, the reflection pond and the White House-where i tried to see how far I could get over the fence before I got shot! All in all it was a fabulous trip full of fabulous Firsts in amazing places!

Fun, fun, fun.......I had my FIRST trip to New York in May. I still remember well my FIRST trip to DC. I LOVED DC. I loved the Lincoln memorial, Arlington cemetary, the Holocaust museum and so much more. Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

I can't wait to hear about your trip tomorrow. I hope the Chili turns out delicious. I was Casey's news production and it was really good. It was fun to see his name in the credits. All his hard work has paid off!

Cali, how the heck are you? What have you been doing these past couple of years? I have no idea what I am doing on facebook, so I was happy when I saw your blog. I about died when I saw a picture of Emma! She has grown up a ton and you had another little girl, congrats! How old is she. Give me the update.

Cali,
You have succeeded in catching those magical shots that Lynley always seems to get (as per our corn maze conversation). We LOVED having you guys out here and hope that you will make it an annual thing. Maybe next time you can see the rest of DC that you weren't able to pack into 5 hours.
