Pumpkin Picking

This past weekend we picked out our pumpkins. There were so many choices... big, small, bumpy, orange, yellow, pink, skinny, fat, expensive and everything else you can think of. But we picked the best ones of course. Nathan got a perfectly round orange one, Brandon picked out a pink flat disk of a pumpkin. I got a yellow bumpy one, because mommy needs a pumpkin too.
Now the fall is complete.

Washington DC

We just got back from Washington DC and we had such an amazing time.
We walked a lot.
We saw a lot.
We also learned a lot! 

The boys were so excited to get there and had a list of "must see" places. A couple of their favorites were the International Spy Museum and the Crime and Punishment Museum (go figure, boys loving spys, good guys and bad guys). They loved all of the memorials and monuments. And riding the Metro was as exciting as a carnival ride.
We are hoping to go back next year to see the Law Enforcement Museum they'll be opening. We also got to visit the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and see David Moore's name on the wall. That is a beautiful memorial, sad but beautiful.
