Spring Break with the Calderwoods :)

For Adam's Spring break, we went to Washington, D.C. and saw our friends Shaun, Rebecca and Ella. We had a wonderful time! We went to the D. C. temple, we walked around downtown Washington D.C., and we finished the weekend off at Colonial Williamsburg, VA. We had a lot of adventures, and ended our trip in laughter close to tears at our exhausted state. Having children does change everything, including how much can get done and how much energy it takes to do it. But it does also make it that much more fun! Watching Ella and Ellie have fun was the best part of my trip :) Here are some shots of our adventures...

Ellie and the Cherry Blossoms. We missed the peak season, but they were still so beautiful.

We really do feel blessed to have such good friends close by, and to be able to visit with them! The girls played so well together, and were such good sports the whole trip! With only several leaky diapers, many late mealtimes, miles and miles walked, and all kinds of weather, we definitely pushed them to the max! This was so much fun, and I can't wait for more family adventures in the years to come!
