Day 1: Snow fort in Granny and Grandpa's backyard during our travels. Yeah, for endless snow and parents willing to shovel it into a pile for you.
Day 2: Visiting Grandpa's used furniture store and hanging with his BFF, Patches. She insisted Patchy needed to be in the photo and was delighted when he sat right down next to her. And, yes, that kid is wearing a penguin hat. She also thinks she needs that chair in her bedroom.
Day 3: More travels. On the mall in D.C. with the Capital in the background after wandering through a couple Smithsonian museums pretending to learn something. My husband has successfully trained my children that the only way to be photographed with a landmark is to pretend to hold it up. They do it immediately no suggestion or request required.
Day 4: Shoveling their faces with Oreo cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory after a hard day wandering through more museums.
Day 5: Flight home from D.C. Fairy book and toy plane.
