The month started off with our annual family trip to DC for the Middle Eastern food festival. We left at 5:30 in the AM Saturday instead of driving late Friday afternoon and it was awesome. Lee loaded the car and I got the girls changed and in the car and we were off. Lee drove and we slept until 8ish. We stopped for a semi-quick breakfast at Cracker Barrel and we were off to the Metro stop. We ventured the DC Metro to get to Arlington National Cemetery - which my paternal grandparents are buried. We visited their grave and the skies did not look nice so we strapped our National Mall plan and headed straight for the Middle Eastern food. Questionable decision because it was smack in the middle of the dreaded nap time. We survived. Stayed for vespers and then headed to the hotel. We got R situated in the pack and play- hotel cribs creep my out a bit. We settled in with E for the long haul. I think Lee threatened to leave a handful of times. E was out of her element and getting to sleep was no easy task. We saw some friends the next morning at church and then headed over to my Aunt and Uncles for dinner Sunday - which has become another fun tradition! Monday was off to the Nats game. I thought the tickets I got were alot better than I thought - still really annoyed so not going there. Seats were great and the girls... were ready to go so we only made it to the sixth inning. We were home by 7 so all in all it was a success and we'll probably keep it up!

Pancakes on the first day of preschool! E LOVES her two-yr old class. She was so very excited to go and wants to go every day.
R is a sitter now. E is still really rough with R and I hear a few bangs when E runs to R and gives her a squeeze and lets go. Also we have had some sharing issues. E will run up to R and say 'Awwww Sweetheart' and take the toy. There is some intervention and the occasion tear.

The sisters are so cute together and R stares E down all the time and she is such a little sponge so I cannot wait to see them together. Gah!!!!!!! They are soooo cute!!!!!!!!
