Right after we got home from our trip to Seattle we were so excited to have Winnie and SM visit us. We took them to DC to see the "Rockets" at the Air and Space Museum. The day ended up being a little more of an adventure than we'd planned on. After wandering through the Museum we were walking down the sidewalk looking for a hot dog vendor when Ryan tripped and fell, splitting his knee open. It was a pretty nasty cut that sent us through the underground maze of the museum to the nurses station. Where it was suggested that he could use a stitch or two.
Unfortunately that took a back seat when we got back to the parking lot where we discovered my car had been stolen! Well, at least I thought it was. Turns out I'm just one of those people who can't remember where they parked. I don't think I've ever felt so stupid! The supervisor of the lot, a very smug gentleman, tried to convince me that "no car has ever been stolen from the lot", while driving me around the lot looking for my "stolen car"! And just as I had finally convinced him that my car was in fact stolen, we drove to the back corner of the lot near where I thought my car should be, I saw my car parked neatly just where I left it! In my defense this spot looked exactly like the spot I thought it should have been, and Winnie was in full agreement the whole time! Yep, that was embarrassing! After that 45 minute adventure and the 2 hour drive home Ryan's knee looked like it would survive with just some neosporin and Band-Aids. We decided that stitches would cause way more trauma than they would help. It's been a week since the accident and his knee looks good so I know we made the right decision.
Here are some pictures before all the excitement:
Winnie and SM on the metro
Ryan and the Rocket
Ry was very excited about this plane since it had his name on it!
SM and the Spaceman!
A couple of boys who didn't want to pose!
On Saturday we had some fun painting pottery and feeding the ducks and fish at the park. Don't tell Juju, but then we had Cheese Steak Sandwiches for lunch. Then we had to take them to the airport and say goodbye!
(I love SM's face in this one!)
We're so glad they could come and visit and hope they had fun!
