Site seeing with Uncle Don, Aunt Jen and Cousin Kim

The weekend of Peter's birthday, Brett's brother, Don; our sister-in-law, Jen; and his Cousin, Kim all came for a long weekend.

They arrived on Thursday evening, so Friday it was my pleasure to entertain our guests while Brett was at work.

In the morning after breakfast Uncle Don gave Peter his birthday gifts - 2 rolling books about Thomas the Tank Engine and Tractors (2 of Peter's favorite things).

Once everyone was up and ready to go we took a drive into the city to go site seeing .

We found great parking near the FDR Memorial, which Peter liked because planes kept flying over from DC's National Airport.

After checking out the FDR, we took a walk around the Tidal Basin to the Jefferson Memorial, and found a memorial I had never seen for George Mason.

Since it was a very hot day and the kids needed to head home for naps, we didn't stay long but we had a lot of fun.
