Ben finally gets to visit the Washington Monument.


It was very cold day,

but Ben's dream of going up into the Washington Monument finally came true.
Macy didn't want to go into the monument, so I stayed outside with her and Kate.
While we were waiting for the others, a bunch of wandering Santas, reindeer and elves came for a visit.

Macy got her picture taken with Santa when she discovered they were giving out free candy canes. I know, I didn't know them from Adam, but I let her eat the candy cane. It was wrapped well and she's okay.

Kate chose to wait while leaning on these marble benches. I'm sure this would be pleasant on a hot summer day when something cool like marble would feel good, but this was not a hot summer day. It was COLD.

Did I mention it was cold? There weren't a lot of people out and about. We always know how to pick those less crowded days. We live for those less crowded days, because lets face it, we are a crowd.
While we were down on the mall, we visited a few museums. Ben wanted a picture of this dinosaur.
Macy and Eleanor wanted this picture of a Shark's jaw.
Claire and Kate wanted their picture taken in front of this penguin.

All in all it was a good, but cold, day.

Aww! I love Kate's hat! Your kiddos are so cute all bundled up - it looks freezing! Claire is just getting so grown up - I like the one of her and Kate - Claire looks like such a big sister. :)
