And basically the kids are almost on auto-pilot. We just troll around behind them and take an occasional headcount. The amusement park parental duties are so minimal now we really only go on the rides we want to. Which means that I only went on the wooden roller coaster (which I regretted) and the tea cups (which I really regretted). Other than that, the kids found riding partners or looped grandma into going on the rides with them. Even Beckett was low key - in fact, I'm pretty sure he spend the day in a poopy diaper...which lost most of it's pungent aroma after the first hour.
It just gets better every year.

This is what we have for a girl's t-shirt. (Wendy insisted on pink...not sure why - I think she thinks that girls wear pink or something). This quote is my SVP's favorite quote and he uses it around our organization. It fits there, but when I heard it, I knew it needed to be on a t-shirt, raising money for poverty.
If you have any graphic design skillz, please help me. The more I look at these designs the more I hate them. And where I'm really stumped is coming up with a design that Dirt would wear. Dirt is definitely a t-shirt wearer - but he won't wear anything with stuff all over it - it needs to be a small message on the chest - like a little man riding on a horse with a polo stick.

It started with breakfast at the hotel, where the kids ate for free and our waitress was Ethiopian (I was thrilled to be able to show off my mad Amharic skillz (translation = the one word I know) by saying "Ameseganallo" - which means "Thank you").
Then off to the Museum of Natural History...which was really cool except every stinkin' exhibit was somehow tied to the evolution lie...zillions of years ago this gift shop began from a piece of chewing gum on the sidewalk, the spark from a caveman's cigarette ignited it and over time, it evolved into a full gift shop with overpriced t-shirts and dinosaur toys. Amazing.
Avery and I were quick to mention to the others that Washington is not actually buried under the monument...we learned this while doing his book report a few months ago. Boo-ya!
The weather was fantastical! It was really the perfect day to be outside walking around DC!
This is how we roll
