La Famiglia

Our family is so important to us, especially since we've started a little family of our own. We were so thrilled to have some family visit these past few days, Joseph's Great Aunt Anna Marie and Great Uncle Jimmy. They made the trek down from north Jersey, where Carl grew up. Not an easy journey, and we're touched they made such effort to meet our little Giuseppe.

We took Joe on his 1st sightseeing tour to Arlington National Cemetery, where the Bugaboo performed smashingly, all the way uphill to see the eternal flame at Kennedy's grave. He also watched about 1/2 of the ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier before needing to excuse himself for a snack. There's still so much more of DC to show him, so we need more visitors to get us out on the town again!

Real quick I had to remember good times of when Philip and I came to visit ya'll....Brent took us to Arlington National Cememtary & we didn't have cash to ride the bus & they wouldn't take credit card. Brent did not hesitate to pay for us so we could all take the bus and not have to walk around in the cold for hours!!!! And for those of you who haven't been to visit-Brent & Carl are fabulous tour guides for the town!! Loved the monuments at nite with Nadine (I think that was her name.)!!!
