A great start to a new year

After a late night of games and merriment and a morning of sleeping in, we decided that we could all use a bit of fresh air,
so we took off for one of the DC area's favorite getaways,
Great Falls National Park.


We've been there in the spring and the fall, but this is the highest we've ever seen the water. 


Fortunately, the water wasn't quite as high as it could have been!


J has been enjoying her time visiting with cousins, playing hide and seek and american girls, but it was nice for them to be able to get out and burn off some of that excess energy.


Well... maybe not all the excess energy!


The way was wet and mushy, but we enjoyed the brisk winter air.
A wonderful beginning to 2010.



Happy New Year!

Happy new year! Love how they enjoyed their outing. It's so important for the little ones to get outside and run and play. It's my main method of keeping my sanity. ;)
