Glad you asked.
Annapolis, MD... and the D.C. area.
First, do you have any tips or places to visit with little ones in the Washington D.C./Annapolis area? The weather should be very nice in May. We are flying but have a rental car to get us to all the places we want to go.
Second, double stroller. I don't like mine at all. We have a Sit and Stand and there are several things that I don't like about it. I'm not sure if we will buy another one before we go, make the Sit and Stand work or if we will end up carrying Rhett in the backpack carrier most of the time.... Suggestions welcome! I think we will be doing a lot on foot and I want to make it as easy as possible with the boys. Preferably a stroller Rhett can nap in, etc...
Third, date ideas? Bryan and I might get a little time to ourselves... the perks of traveling with ALL of our family and he really wants to take me to the Spy Museum. Bryan has been to D.C. a few times but I have only been to D.C. once for a conference in High School and we basically just saw most of the U.S. government buildings, etc, but didn't really do anything fun. I did tell him one thing that I didn't get to do that I want to do is drive by the White House... and I heard you can tour it again now?? Anywhere else we should check out if we can sneak away?
Fourth, we have been watching House of Cards and I love, love Scandal. I think I might be a little disappointed to not see Olivia Pope or Frank Underwood while we are there, ha! But it is getting me in the spirit of being in our Nation's capitol.
The interesting thing is that Bryan and I basically decided from the get-go that we wouldn't be able to go on this trip. It was going to be too much trouble, too expensive and too hard to travel that far with the boys. When we were away for our weekend in February, we talked about it, and just realized that life is so short. We've lost two family members in a little over a year and you just don't know how much longer you have with your family. I am so, so, so excited to spend a week with all of my Kerby family and I love that Hudson and Rhett get to play with my cousins (the little ones are closer in age to them than me, ha! Perks of being the oldest). My grandma has been here with us in Arkansas for a little over two months and she just left to go home yesterday and we won't see her again until we go to Annapolis. Rhett and I might both go through withdrawals! ha!

So let me know your tips or any travel tips with little ones at all! I am very open to suggestions!
