So I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d like to lately. Things have been super hectic between getting ready for Washington, D.C. and the JA Conference and preparing for Opa’s Celebration of Life which will be held on July 16th.
We arrived in DC on Monday July 4th and have been go go go since we got there and it’s been a BLAST! We’ve done as much sightseeing as we can (with 2 small children). My sister, who lives in Connecticut, took the train to DC and was able to spend the 5th and 6th with us which has been so great because I haven’t seen her 8 years.
The conference starts tomorrow so I will definitely have some more posts soon.
Tonight in the lobby I met two families from New Zealand who are here for the conference as well as a mom I know from a Facebook JA group! I’m so excited to meet everyone else!
Here’s some pictures in the meantime:

As you can see B is not having the time of her life
