We went to Ford Theater, where Lincoln was shot (in the booth behind me, above) and then headed across the street to the house where he died. The bed below is where he died. Very sad. But I did learn more about the story than I knew before, like the fact that John Wilkes Boothe was a famous actor, which is why they let him in to greet the president. So it would be like Brad Pitt shooting Obama…but that would never happen today.
Nick’s family came to visit us for a week! We were so glad to have them and we had a ton of fun. They got here last Monday evening. Tuesday, we went to the air and space museum and the national history museum. Then we had Chipotle for dinner.

Oscar! At the national history museum
Kermit! Also at the national history museum…and in the same display were Dorothy’s ruby red slippers!
Natalie and Paul taking a break to admire Jonah again. We wore ourselves out pretty good by the end of the day…soooo much walking in DC!
Dear Nick…congratulations on your promotion from Private to Specialist last Friday! Sorry I couldn’t be there for the ceremony. I love you!
And thank you for all that you do Nick! You’re such a great dad, husband, provider, cook and friend!
Jonah’s very first bottle. (And he’s only had one other since!
For those of you that know my brother Cody, he recently went into the MTC. If you would like to read all about his adventures I will be keeping up his blog at www.elderwoodbury.blogspot.com
