And in July we had a long-awaited visit from the awesome Lila

She made it to DC!

We went to the the National Botanic Garden (see above and below: the children’s garden), the Museum of the American Indian, and Air and Space …

And then went for a long swim at Yards Park:

This enormous pool complete with waterfall and sprinklers is almost half the size of an Olympic pool … and an even 11 inches deep from one end to the other. Needless to say the kids find it divine.

And after all of that it’s probably no wonder that we were all struck by a stomach bug and barely managed to make it out to the Children’s Museum 4 blocks from our house before we had to drop Lila back at the train:

But come visit again soon! We’ll use more hand sanitizer!
