The Murray's Take on D.C.: Part 1

So this weekend we decided to be brave and do our first trip as a family and head off to Washington D.C. on the Metro! We set off to visit the National Aquarium, which was a sorry excuse for an aquarium if ever I saw one. I think they said, "hey we have some extra room in this building's basement lets put an aquarium down here and charge people to see the kind of fish they could see at the local pet store! So we were disappointed it the exhibit (if you couldn't tell) and didn't want to just head off home so we walked to the Washington Monument and did half of the Cherry Blossom festival (which was beautiful). We are planning on going back this weekend to see the Cherry festival parade and walk the rest of the Cherry tree path along the Potomac river.

As, always enjoy the photos!

P.S. If you don't already know by now there is a really good chance (about 95%) that we will be moving back to Texas by the end of this year. I don't have many details to tell you other than the fact that Reed's boss has decided to open a branch in Houston, Texas and he asked us if we wanted to move back and run the branch. We said yes, so now we are just working on the details of when we will go. We will keep you posted!

Wow, those cherry trees are amazing! Cute pictures of the girls and yay for TEXAS! That means you can come to ABQ on a road trip after that... The girls must see the Balloon Fiesta!
