In preparation for our current travels, Colin got a new back pack. The photo is a bit over-blown, but I think it is very cute. He loves the back pack. For several days he would come over to me and give me big hugs thanking me over and over for his back pack. And it really was quite handy on the plane to have him carry his own cars and snacks. He did have to learn that you can't wear a back pack and sit in a car seat at the same time. This lesson involved a tantrum.

We are in the Washington DC area for the wedding of Megan Hardy this week. It is strange and nice to travel for personal reasons. We are staying with our friends the Bairds who we have lived with on and off for the past five years and we are having a great time catching up. Above is the DC Temple, where Megan will wed on Friday. We are doing the photos so we went to scope out the temple grounds the other day. There are signs of Spring everywhere, which we are enjoying since we heard Utah got about 10 inches of snow the day after we left. We have not gotten to the Mall for the Cherry Blossoms yet but will tomorrow.

I am saying "Hello from DC."

    Would your friends the Bairds be related to Kari Baird Johnson? She's my sister in law.

    I love the photo of the bird's nest, very pretty. Also, the picture of you with the DC Temple in the background is very pretty too. You are very photogenic!

    Glad you are having a nice trip, for fun!!!

    Love the bird nest picture. Have fun and enjoy the sunshine (we could use some of that about now).

    I believe Evan had a meltdown too when he couldn't keep his backpack on in the car. So much injustice in the world.
