The Crawford's visit DC

After spending a few days in Richmond we headed up to DC to visit Aunt Cara and meet up with Billy who flew into DC. There was no agenda for this overnight trip except breakfast reservations at Founding Farmers (which was really good, but Toast in Bham/Ferndale is still my #1 fav). But we ended up packing a lot in for the 24 hours we were there and enjoyed our "test" visit and can't wait to go back. Getting around DC with two lils and two strollers was a lot easier than I thought. The restaurants were more than accommodating and even Cara's apartment proved to be the perfect size for this family of four!

We started our stay with a picnic in a local park/circle. Cara made some munchies and we arrived right in the middle of a parade. Not your typical parade, but entertaining.
Billy's friend Reid also stopped by to meet William and see Lauren.
After dinner we walked to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and just happened to meet the Obama's. Ok, the last part is a lie, but it was the first time I saw the White House from the other side.
We did brunch on Sunday, the National Muesum of Natural History, walked the mall, and as I previously posted, Lauren had her first merry go round ride.

(Billy and I have a picture that was taken in the same spot 5 years ago...we tried to take it with the kids, but Lauren wouldn't have it)

Lauren (and William's) first Metro ride.
We had a great time and thanks Aunt Cara for having us!
