visiting the lincoln memorial (& vietnam memorial)...

mother's day weekend was probably my favorite weekend to-date. 
it was perfect. 
(perfect, minus my mother's day pity-party at church where i started freaking out that it was the worst day ever because jude refused to go to nursery and only screamed, and i was tired and overwhelmed... this time also coincides with nap time, and looking back it shouldn't have been a very big deal? alas, i'm clearly still working on developing patience:) it was not my most graceful day, and i'm sure my kids- and others- thought, why does she get mother's day glory? she's nutso!)

ahem, the weekend.    friday we went to the coolest park, and then mike and i went on a datesaturday we had the best time seeing museums, which was epic, and so after my glamorous and uber mature morning at church on sunday, we decided to get out of the apartment and walked around the lincoln memorial.     it was just the best.     the big rain clouds helped shade the hot sun from singeing us for the 3rd day in a row...
jude's faces kill me. there are some gems from this day...
^^ mike tried to give me a heart attack since i thought it was a sheer drop on the other side- not funny.
after visiting mr. lincoln, we walked a few more steps to see the vietnam memorial...
...then back under the rain clouds where we found a hairy caterpillar...
... and finally we picnicked in some grass and people-watched.
twas a happiest mother's day weekend, indeed.
