Washington DC Trip

We did manage to find some time for fun when we went out to Philadelphia. We stayed at my Aunt Connie's house in Maryland for Saturday and Sunday night. On Sunday they took us in to Washington D.C. which was only a 45 minute drive from their house. It was Matt's first trip to Washington D.C. and I had not been since high school. The World War II Memorial is new since I was there last. It was very cool.

After we left DC we went over to the Chesapeake Bay where my Uncle Les keeps his boat. Jadon went for his first boat ride. Unfortunately it was cool and overcast, but it was still nice to get out on the water. Connie and Les took us to a seafood restaurant that has "parking" spot for boats. You just pull up, tie your boat up, and go eat. It was wonderful food. Both Matt and I had the Stuffed Flounder. It was stuffed with King Crab! Yum! Jadon fell asleep on the trip back. It was a really fun day! Thanks to Aunt Connie and Uncle Les for helping us take our mind off the purpose of the trip for a little while. It was great!
