Grandma Pat and Papa let DJ take this big boy bike home since he has outgrown his tricycle. As you can see from the video we are still working on mastering turning the bike. We were at Grandma Pat's house this day before we took the bike home. You can laugh, he wasn't hurt :)

Raking Leaves With Grandpa

Our last day in MD was balmy and in the 60's. DJ was dying to get outside and do some yardwork with Grandpa.

Christmas 2008 in MD

This past Christmas was spent in MD. DJ and I spent the night at Katey's house so all 3 boys could wake up together on Christmas morning. As I was posting the pictures below I realized that I missed a bunch of shots like all 3 of the cousins together and a least one family shot.
We were supposed to be scaling back this year...
(you can't even see the presents on the other side of the tree)




Take note parents of small children, Elmo's kitchen was a hit!


Play Doh time, I think Aiden was making spaghetti and DJ was cutting it

Zoo Lights

While in MD we checked out Zoo Lights at the National Zoo in DC. It starts in the evening when it is dark and in place of the animals the zoo put lighted displays where the animals would noramlly be seen. DJ had a great time, we were the first ones in and stayed until 15 mins before closing. Recommended event if you are in the DC area in December.


Our trip started on the King Street Metro, DJ's first time


A couple of the small animal houses were open for visits
