Grandma Maughan goes to Washington

We were so lucky to have my mom come visit this last weekend. She got killer plane tickets because she left the day of the inauguration.
Ethan trying to impress Grandma right off the bat by flexing his oh-so-humongous muscles.
We planned on driving up to New York City on Friday, but Ethan's body temperature clocked in at 103.9 degrees the night before, so we canceled our hotel reservations and stayed home. It was a definite downer, but we found our own fun here. Like at the American History Museum, where we took photos of nothing but ourselves:
The First Lady exhibit was awesome (though brief). No photos allowed.

It was so cold here that we spent much of our time in our little apartment, sewing. I know, fun vacation right? Ethan tried his best to entertain.
Making faces at each other.
Action shot.
This is inside the Paper Source in Old Town Alexandria, where Ethan formed an instant bond with the fake bears. He kept hugging them and backed into their arms for photos.
Maybe we enjoyed a little too much of the molten chocolate dessert at the Chart House in Old Town.

We miss you, Mom!

Visits from mom are the best. That is so cute of Ethan with the bears. What a sweetie.
