Washington D.C. Weekend

This weekend we were in the Washington D.C. area for cousin Gabriel's Bar Mitzvah. The weather was nice on Friday when we went down so that we were able to walk around Georgetown and visit some of the sights on the Washington Mall before heading to Northern Virginia for the family event.

Helena has picked up her mother's love for baking and cooking. DC Cupcakes is featured on a show of the same name on The Learning Channel. Of course, we pre-ordered our half dozen cupcakes for pick up the day we arrived!

Johnny Rockets for lunch!

They should be paying us for this advertisement!

We promised Helena's teachers that we would get good pictures of her with the sights. This is a shot from the top step of the Lincoln Memorial east toward the Washington Monument.

Yes, we did bring Jonathan while we toured the sights. He napped during our 2 hour walk.

Helena asked whether she would get to see Obama while we visited the White House. I explained why that wouldn't happen, and later that night I learned that he was actually in Florida anyway.

Sara, Jeff, and Jonathan

Bowling Saturday night. Sadly, despite all the handheld technology at the bowling lanes, nobody has video of Jeff hitting a behind-the-back-and-through-the-legs strike.
