Spring Break!

We thought we'd take advantage of our friend Travis's hospitality just one more time before he leaves Washington DC, so for spring break we hauled our 16 month old across the country. (Not a fun flight, by the way.) We went with Adam and Jessalyn, and it turned out to be a lot of fun - especially since Brad condescended to let me eat every two hours - pregnancy is fun :)

We were supposed to be there during the cherry blossom peak, but I guess it came early this year. I was really happy when we found a few trees still in bloom in Arlington Cemetery.

Kaiya was a little "too" happy at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier; she and I went for a walk while everyone paid their respects. She is such a ham!


Here are some shots from the Lincoln Memorial... Kaiya insisted on walking up the stairs. I really don't know who she gets her stubbornness from.


What in the world are those guys doing behind us??

I couldn't help but snap a picture of my two favorite people! (Brad's a good sport for carrying my "girly" diaper bag.)

Here's our failed attempt at a White House photo. How dare the sun set before we get our tourist photo opp?

Kaiya would get so excited when we'd let her out of her stroller. I love how tiny she looks next to the Washington Monument!

Finally, here's Brad's highlight of the trip: 5th row seats to an Orioles game! If us girls look a little tired and hot, it's because we were.

Oops, I did it again.

It's too bad that both of my sisters are pregnant right now; it looks like I have to start buying my own maternity clothes.

Yep,
Walker baby number two is on its way!

We are really excited and looking forward to meeting Kaiya's new baby brother or sister on
October 23rd.

Easter. Kind of.

Brad's mom had the grandkids over (plus Isabel) for a backyard easter egg hunt this week. It was kind of cold, but I don't think they noticed.


Kaiya was done after finding like three eggs. She was too easily distracted by the trampoline...


...the "puppy" (I am in serious trouble here: Kaiya LOVES dogs!! Especially the big ones.)...

...and the lure of the swing. I have to show off my daughter's amazing acrobatic skill here. I turned around to see her across the yard, attempting to get on the swing all by herself. She succeeded and was pretty darn proud of herself.
