Washington Monument at night

We had such a great time last month on our trip to D.C. last month. This was our first time to experience the city, and we fell in love with it. There was so much to do, and I feel like we didn't even put a dent in what the city had to offer. All the memorials and monuments were awesome. We didn't have our camera with us the day we say the Jefferson Monument, but it was equally impressive. We also were able to experience the zoo, and a few of the Smithsonian Museums. We are only 4 hours away, so we hope to make the trip again soon. The girls really liked it. It was neat to be able to teach Britten about our country's history. She really took an interest in it. Ellie was just glad to be there.
Justins eye surgery went well while we were there. I was a little nervous because I knew that I would have to drive, but it wasn't all that bad. He went on on a Wednesday morning and had his eyes lasered (not sure if this is a word?). It was cool because the girls and I were able to watch the whole procedure on a screen. The surgery went really fast...and he was ok that day. The next few days were a little rough on him. He was really sensitive to light and had to put tons of eye drops in. He is still not 100% with his vision, but it is getting better every day. No more glasses for Justin!
