On Monday, May and Dennis went off to the FBI tour while I took the kids to our last storytime at Northeast Library, which is only a 5 minute walk from us. I had been meaning to take a photo of the strollers that take over the hallway (because everyone on the Hill walks, including the nannies who work the hill), but forgot and oh well - trust me when I say, it is ridiculous and something you will never see elsewhere because people drive to the library. We enjoyed storytime with our friends and then made our way home for lunch which consisted of even more Chinese leftovers from our Saturday trip to Philly. May and Dennis made their way home and we all just chilled until it was time to head off to our Capital tour.
The walk was brisk and nice, but man, the heat was coming down and we were all sweaty by the time we got there. I have absolutely loved our time in DC but secretly, a little grateful we missed the humidity and were only there for the best part of the year.
Andy met us up for the tour and I didn't get many photos but hopefully will update later with May's photos.
For dinner, we let Bubba pick since we never truly celebrated his birthday on Saturday with candles and cake. He chose pizza so we tried We The Pizza, right on Pennsylvania and close to the Capital.
We stopped by a small bakery on 8th on the way home to grab some cupcakes for the boys. Of course, they BOTH chose the one with a French Macaron on top ($1 more), and again asked mom to make them some macarons. I don't think they understand how much time and effort goes into it, they just want some and have been asking me ever since we tried to make some with a friend a few weeks ago in Rossyln. Ha.
One of the perks of having your birthday within a week of your brother is to blow out candles together! There are actually 5 candles in Jordan's cupcake but it only looks like three from this angle.
