Last week we flew out to NJ the kids were so excited to go that right after the first hr of church the kids ran outside and said lets go to Babbas house! I tried taking them back into church, but that was a no go so we stayed and smelled the flowers and decided to take a few pics, because that’s what we do :) Hope everyone is having a great Saturday, tomorrow is a  very big day for Briton, he is getting blessed, I can’t wait to hear what is blessing will say.

Going into this trip I knew that some parts of it my husband would be working and that I would be touring D.C. solo, well not completely solo, I did have my little trio with me. Before I left it was crunch time as far as what I was going to do about my stroller situation. I found this seat attachment on amazon, and I have to say it has been the best purchase. The kids love it and so do I.

The day of the Air & Space Museum was awesome and it really tested me. I got a map from the hotel concierge and with stroller in tow we set out for the day. When we got home I had sweat so bad my entire shirt was drenched! This has never happened before this bad in my life. I asked the concierge how far the museum was from our hotel and she said about 3 miles, makes sense that my shirt was sopping wet, it was about 100 degrees, felt like 100% humidity all while pushing the trio.  I felt like a champ :)

D.C. really is my favorite city. It’s clean, it’s busy, it’s full of history-past and present, the crowd is awesome-all aggressive young yuppies and traveling business men/women. I would walk outside and would just keep on walking at an aggressive pace because everyone else was. I love how everyone dresses really nice and I feel like everyone is smart, I always say my I.Q. goes up a couple points every time I visit.

Washington D.C. {The White House}

Hi guys I wanted to quickly let you all know about my outfit and about sizing since I had so many questions I thought this would be the best platform to answer all the questions on.

Lets start with the denim skirt. Love it! It is a little more money than I would like to spend on a denim skirt, but I have to say it is a closet staple and I will wear all the time. Order one size up, I am normally a solid 25 in skirts but the 25 was too tight I ordered both the 26 and 27 and honestly I preferred the 27 but remembered that denim does stretch out so I stuck with the 26.

Baseball shirt I am wearing a size xs.

Converse I am wearing a size 7, I normally wear a 7.5 or 8, order half size down.

We are loving our stay in D.C. I really do love this city. We are here because my husband has work here so I have been touring the city by myself with the littles. It has not been bad at all. I actually was nervous for this part of the trip and almost brought someone to help me. But thankfully so far so good.

Wearing Neon

Good morning. I am writing this post future tense. If things go as planned I will have arrived in Baltimore last night and arrived to our hotel in D.C. This is where we will be spending the next couple of days. The last time I was here Holland was a newborn. It seems like every year we are bringing someone new along with us on our annual east coast vacay. During our travels we will be spending a big portion with Dallins family. I can’t wait for Briton to meet Dallins side.

Hope everyone is having a great start to the new week!

A Breath of Fresh Air

Switching up the pace today, lets think of this post like a breath of fresh air. About two weeks ago we visited my parents and went to church with them. We decided to visit Snowbird as well, this being literally up the street from them. You would think with it being so close we would visit here more often, but it had been forever since I had come up during the summer. If you are looking to beat the heat Snowbird is the place to be. I watched the temperature drop 20 degrees on our way up the mtn. It went from 100 degrees to 80, not too shabby.

On a side note I can not get over how much Holland reminds me of Michelle Tanner from Full House (the Olsen twins) with her hair in a pony and sunnies so of course I taught her how to put her thumb up and say “you got it dude”.
