Kara flew out on Martin Luther King weekend with her sons Blake, 7 months, and Jacob, almost 3.
For Dave ,
Erika and Andrea it was the first time they had seen Blake who was born in June
2011. Julia had been to Colorado over Thanksgiving with James and
Dave drove us down to the District (Washington, DC) on Monday. There
were a lot of people at the Martin Luther King Memorial. We saw the Jefferson
Memorial, and then went to the Natural Histrory Smithsoniam Museum (which houses
the Hope Diamond among other treasures.)
Here's the group in fromt of the Smithsonian.
We had to get a
family picture here by this statue. The plaque proclaims that all humankind is
descended from this particular type of rat. As Kara said of it, "Whatever."
