Off to DC--civics education starts early!

Today we'll take Ella on her first road trip! We are only going to DC this time which is a good practice run for our much longer drive to Florida next week for the wedding. Ella is really a girl about town so far! We appreciate her patience. Hopefully the long drives will go as well as the carseat nap on the way home from breakfast this morning.

We are really excited for our trip though because it will be Ella's first time meeting her cousins (also because Paul and I are excited to see Angela and her family of course!). I sense some really cute photo ops in the near future! And Paul and I always love to go to DC. It is such a fun town. Since we are pretty nerdy we just bask in all the free museums. We'll see how this trip works for that though. The what-to-do vote will be split between 4 adults, 2 preschoolers and 2 infants. I think each infant vote equals like 5 or 6 adult votes too when you count them up. But hopefully we can convince Ella to vote for riding around peacefully in the Ergo. I'll let you know how it goes. But it should definitely be some good family time!
