Abbey and I spent the past weekend in the D.C. area. We were privileged to be asked to go to First Baptist Church Easton, MD to teach their children's workers and parents. It was a wonderful experience.
Since Abbey hates talking to strangers, we decided that we would self-portrait our trip around the National Mall. We must have walked at least 10 miles that day!
It was really nice weather. It was my first trip to D.C.
The Washington Monument is larger than I thought it would be.
This was our first trip to book solely on Hotwire.com and I must say I would do it again.
We got a great price on a rental car and an amazingly nice hotel room in "The Westin" for only $57.00 per night.
While we were in D.C./Maryland, Reed was at Pop's and Lola's. Sick. He had a nasty sinus infection and was running a fever and didn't feel good at all.
One night we skyped with him and he was so pitiful.
Saturday night, we ate dinner with the staff of the church and their families in Maryland. It was the most amazing crab cake dinner ever. Delicious!
Sunday morning, Abbey and I demonstration taught Sunday School and then we both taught a conference that morning. Sunday afternoon we both taught two conferences. It was a long day, but the people at the church was so kind and friendly. We loved them. They have an incredible Children's Minister who does an wonderful job and really works to meet the needs of the parents and children in her church.
Monday morning, we were blessed to speak at the MOPS group. We were able to share a little about our adoption experience.
It was a lot of fun to be able to spend some quality time with Abbey.
