Fun-Filled Holiday Weekend

This weekend was a blast! Friday, we went to the National Harbor with Amy, Bo and Clara. We met a cow, picked up balloons and peeps hats and then met Amy and Clara for dinner. Afterwards we headed over to the Gaylord resort to meet Bo for the tree lighting show with characters from Disney's Madagascar, an indoor snowfall, train ride, and picture with Santa. The girls did great with Santa; it was the same Santa we met last year. Evelyn made friends with a few penguins (look behind Evelyn in second picture above; they played peek-a-boo with her for at least 5 cute).

Saturday we hung out at the house in the morning and then had a sitter to go to a holiday party at Belle Haven Country Club that evening. It was pretty over-the-top. Yum food, lots of drinks, dancing, etc. So fun.

Sunday, we had swimming. The girls are so relaxed in the pool! You can't dare touch them if they are swimming with a noodle. We grabbed a pizza lunch and headed back for naps (wait, they didn't nap!). That evening we went to the Bull Run Festival of Lights, which is 2.5 miles of lights and then a holiday village at the end. We saw Santa and went on a hay ride. So fun!
