Friday morning, we drove from Norfolk to Washington, DC to pick up Vijay from the airport. The kids and I were all excited to see him; it was great to have family time after a week apart. We had a great weekend in DC starting with sight seeing and museum hopping. The National Muesum of Art, Smithsonian Natural History Museum, International Spy Museum, the National Archives…It is so easy to focus on what we didn’t see, what we did see was wonderful. It was so inspiring to see these symbols of our Nation. It was fun for all of us as a family too because it was a first time for us all.
The weekend ended relaxing with family. Vijay’s entire immediate family was there, a rarity. It was great fun to see nieces and nephews and watch all the cousins together. I love the time that the kids can spend together. As other’s with families spread across the country know, any time together is a gift and a blessing. Every moment is one to be cherished.
