WASHINGTON D.C. VACATION
Wow, what can I say? Last week was CrAzY! It included lots of stroller rides on the metro, Oaklee's beloved baths with Gracie, me sleeping on a blow up mattress in Gracie's room, (meanwhile Oaklee slept in the hallway) blowing the power to Amie's whole house more than once with all of our blow dryers and straighteners, adjusting to the time change, (especially for Oaklee), and lots of other exciting adventures. However, despite all the chaos, every minor sacrafice has been well worth it to spend time with the people we have missed the most; Amie, Gracie, and Josh. It was so refreshing to be back in D.C. again, and this time with Oaklee. Amie was a great hostess. Finding a place for 2 babies and 4 adults to sleep, and finding room for all of our luggage and crap. (an accomplishment she should be proud of!) Josh was an excellent taxi cab, making numerous trips back and forth from one place to another folding up strollers and buckling in car seats just so we can go somewhere as simple as out to dinner. Not to mention he put up with 5 women for a week (scary). Going back to D.C. made it even more clear how much I miss these guys!! Especially my little buddy gracie. I cannot believe what a change 5 weeks can make when you don't see someone you love. She is growing up so fast, and adding lots of new words to her vocabulary, including "Here you go", "I love you" and "Hippo eats apples" ( a little random, but she loves the hippo at the Zoo). I was way sad to leave a waving, blowing kisses, clueless Gracie and sad Amie on the doorstep to their apartment, but happy to know that they come HOME (home=UTAH thats for you Josh,.. just kidding) soon

Sorry Stace. Home is where ever the hell I want it to be. Recently I was thinking South Africa or maybe Siberia.

Alright, maybe I was a little harsh. I will let Gracie visit you when we are in South Africa.
