Our 1st Family Vacation




We went to Washington D.C. and Ocean City, MD. We spent the first day in D.C. by ourselves and the second day, our frineds, Jenni and Josh joined us with their 2 kids. Then the 3rd day, we went by the D.C. LDS temple. I will say, seeing that temple pop out amongst the trees is powerful. I did not realize how huge it is. I was very emotional seeing it and knowing what it represented. I am greatful for temples and how even their physical presence makes you think about heaven. The next morning, we woke in Ocean City, MD to have a day of outdoor fun! We went to the beach and then walked the long boardwalk for miles. We ate TONS of junkfood there but justified it with the walking and being on vacation. The next day was more low-key since I was starting to get sick but we went out with my mom's sweet cousins(who hosted us the whole vacay). We got yummy fudge and Gary and I took a ride on a super fast jet ski. We had our last dinner with the family there and the next morning, headed back to Virginia to leave. It was a great vacation and with 2 kids, was just long enough! For all of our pictures, look on my facebook page.
