As I mentioned Wes has been sick and we’ve been told to stay clear of our baby friends. It’s been about two weeks of isolation at this point, and two weeks is a long time! Long time to be just us at home and a long time to be away from babies because so much happens to babies in two weeks. They’re all going to be crawling and eating solids by the time we rejoin. I’m sort of kidding. Anyway, while we’re not able to play, Wes is feeling better. Since Sean is the only other person we’re allowed to be around right now, we took a trip into DC for a walk around the Mall and a lunch date with Daddy yesterday.
Look at him staring up in wonder at all the buildings! Isn’t he so cute?! Those cheeks!
We went to the Museum of American History first and, as luck would have it, the food section is in the back on the first floor, right where the people who need an accessible entrance come in. Perfect!
Is it just me, or is it a little odd to see things like a pizza wheel and George Foreman grill in a museum?
Wes finally fell asleep somewhere in the transportation section. That kid goes on a nap strike every other day and it drives me up the wall. Anyway, how fun is this model of the kitchen in a sleeper train?
Then we headed back into downtown for lunch with Sean at The Hamilton. This is kind of the perfect lunch spot for us. Burger for Sean, sushi for me. I don’t know of too many places that cover both of those items. After lunch we stopped by Sean’s office briefly and visited with a few of his colleagues.
We ended our day with a stroll around the Mall. The weather was perfect. I almost went into the Air & Space Museum for some astronaut ice cream. I love astronaut ice cream, but we’ll do that another day. Even when we’re all feeling better and back at playgroup and story time and yoga, I think we’ll do this again. While I like having the opportunity to go to the museum for me and spend time reading about this and that, I can’t wait until Wes is big enough to get excited and enjoy these museums. There will be no time for reading this and that then, I’m sure.
