White House Visit (in December)

I just realized that I never posted our photos from the White House tour we went on. We were not allowed to take any pictures inside the West Wing, but as you can see, we could take as many as we wanted outside! We were able to take some inside the Press room as well, which was kind of fun. You would actually be kind of shocked at how small that room really is. It always looks so big on T.V. Anyway, we had a fantastic time, and we learned a great deal. We were even able to look into the Oval Office and see the Resolute Desk. Now, for those of you who have seen the movie "National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets", you will understand what I am talking about. I asked our guide if there really was a matching desk in England, and after some discussion with one of the guards, the answer is a big YES. It is in Parliament. Kind of cool.

Circus Fun!

We were lucky enough to be given tickets to the circus and watch it from a suite. The best things about it, other than a great view, is the fact that Erin never struggles with her wheelchair, there is a bathroom inside the suite, and there is a sitting area for fun intermission photos! We had five excited little girls ready for more fun. From Left: Katelyn, Erin, Taylor, Olivia, and Jade.

Ms. Michelle bought each of the girls a clown nose. Taylor was the only one who could keep hers on, and I think she kind of enjoyed it. Maybe she has a future as a clown! :0)

One of our favorite things about the circus is the fact that they have these amazing elephants! We just love them! Jade adores elephants, and she calls them all Nelly. Too cute!

St. Patrick's Day

We want to wish everyone a belated Happy St. Patrick's Day! We hope everyone had a good day. Here are a few pictures of our girls sporting their green for the day. As you may be able to see, Erin had just finished a red popsicle, thus the bright red lips!
