Wow what an adventure we had this weekend! We began our fun-filled weekend on Thursday evening with a drive to Yorktown, Va where we would be attending Justin's graduation from the Coast Guard Training Center the following morning. Cole had a wonderful time hanging out with his cousins while swimming in the hotel's pool. The following day was filled with activities at the training center. We are so proud of Justin!
On Saturday, Craig, Cole and I started at Gravelly Point, next to National Airport, and rode our bikes into the City. This was the first time we had taken Cole to Gravelly Point to see the airplanes and boy was it exciting. I used to go there a lot as a child and it is still an excited place to watch the planes landing at the airport (they are RIGHT over your head!). Our ride into the City was fun too. Cole saw 2 helicopters and wanted to see more. We stopped at the WWII memorial to dip our feet, had ice cream on the mall and then headed home to cool down and have dinner.
On Sunday, we visited our friends, Carl (well he was at work), Erin and Ella, that just moved to the area. We took Cole and Ella to a park where there are train rides! It was fun, Cole said.
