Weekend Recap (Trip to DC) & Menu Planner

We didn't have much planned for the weekend so on a whim we decided to plan a road trip to DC. We booked our room Saturday morning at the Embassy Suites Crystal City and then hopped in the car. We got to town around noon, had lunch and then took the Metro into DC to see the National Museum of Natural History. Camille & Clyde thought the Metro was pretty cool! And at the museum we saw dinosaur bones, and cockroaches, and live butterflies. Afterwards, we had ice cream on the National Mall. It was a really fun day and Embassy is perfect for traveling with kids!

My favorite butterfly
Clyde's pouty face in front of the dinosaurs...sometimes he just doesn't want to cooperate.

At the hotel happy hour....not sure if Camille's look is one of horror as Clyde stuffs in the popcorn! Thought this was too hilarious not to post.  
Watching Lorax...time for bed!
