We got home from DC at midnight on Friday night. We were up early the next morning to drive 1 1/2 hrs. to Trevin's district wrestling tournament in Buhl and then Sunday morning Kelly and Trevin left for Hurricane. Meghan and Toby were driving through (and Trip came in on Tuesday) so Kelly went down to spend some time with his siblings.

 Trevin loved playing with his cousins, golfing and riding an ATV.

 Meghan & Toby drove from Hurricane to see us in Idaho on Tuesday night. They spent the day with us on Wednesday and it was good to get to know Toby and hang out together.

Washington, D.C.

In Trevin's words…
Our first day at DC--First we flew into DC [Baltimore]. Then we took a taxi to our hotel. When we got to the hotel we headed out to see all of the monuments. We saw the Washington monument, the White House, the WWII Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial, the MLK Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial. When we were done we headed back to the hotel and ate dinner. My favorite memorials were the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. They were huge.

Our second day in DC we got up early and ran to the ticket booth for the Bureau of Engraving and got tickets to go later. Then we went to the Museum of American History. Then the Museum of Natural History and we did a lot of walking. After that we went to SMOOTHIE KING!!! Then we went to Bureau of Engraving and watched a lot of money print. After that we took a subway to the restaurant Shake Shack. Then we went to the Spy Museum. It was very awesome. Then we went back to the hotel.
 Our last day in DC we got up and went to see the National Archives and the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and Bill of Rights. Then we went to the Air and Space Museum and saw lots of planes and space ships. I liked the Declaration and Constitution and Bill of Rights. Then we went to the hotel and ate a quick lunch and got a taxi to the airport. When we got there we had a 4 1/2 hour direct flight to Salt Lake and then we reunited.
