Well, that pretty much sums up our vacation. I Finally figured why it wouldn't let me edit or organize the pictures so I could get this blog posted already. So, a little late, but here you go.
We had a lot of fun! It was so great to see my brother graduate! Such an accomplishment. He's such a smarty. I wish I had some of that in me.
While in Virginia we went to Williamsburg, the beach, fishing, an awesome old dinner and movie theater, and the aquarium. Fishing was my favorite! I didn't catch any thing, but it was cool to see what everyone else caught. Aaron caught a shark, a guy next to us caught a sting ray, my dad caught a pig fish that snorts. We forgot sunscreen, so we all got burned, but I got fried. I've never been burned so bad in my life. I don't know what it is with me and getting horribly burned with giant blisters lately, but I seem to be really, very good at it. I'm still peeling and pink some places. I'm so glad it doesn't hurt or itch any more though.
The aquarium was awesome too. We got to pet horse shoe crabs, some other kind of crab, starfish, and friggin sting rays! I love petting the sting ray's cause they are killer animals!They killed one of the greatest outdoors guys ever, and we can just stick our hands in the tank and pet them? Crazy!
In DC we did the typical touristy stuff. Took the Metro into town, saw the monuments, a few of the Smithsonian's, went to a National's game (they won!), and the National Archives, which was so cool to see! At the Nats game, apparently something historic happened involving a triple play and a home run by the same person... or something like that... I don't know. I'm not a huge baseball fan. It's hasn't happened since like 1950 something though. But it's really cool that I was there to sort of witness that :) I loved the game though. It was great! DC is always so much fun!

Great vacation! Time to start planning the next one! :)

The end!

Yes it does look like you two had fun. Washington DC is one trip I want to go on and sight see. PS, the spaghetti you made last night was so yummy. I might need you to show the exact ingredients.
