DC weekend

C and I road-tripped to DC this weekend to see his sister, Alicia (celebrating April bdays!) and our good friends Caitlin and Brian (and their oh-so-adorable kids Case and Claire).  We had a great time!  We arrived on Friday night, shortly after Mom and Dad K. and then went out to dinner in Alicia's new neighborhood, Arlington.  On Saturday, we got up early for breakfast at Founding was delicious (highly recommend the beignets and the stuffed french toast) and then C and I went to Georgetown to see Cait and Brian.  The 6 of us navigated the streets of Georgtown (not easy with a double stroller, mind you), hit up a park for the kids and then beers and pizza for the adults :)  We last saw them in Colorado last year and have dearly missed them!  Then we met back up with C's family at the National Mall and enjoyed the Botanical Gardens.  Next came dinner and the OSU/KU game (kinda glad I fell asleep during the second half).  Sunday included Palm Sunday Mass, home cooking and a 6.5 hour drive home...let's hear it for books on tape, they make the drive so much more bearable.  Here are a few photos of our trip:
