I've written before about the Ely cathedral and how stunningly beautiful it is. Since it was a Sunday, we decided to drive to Ely and attend the Sunday morning service at the cathedral. Somehow, we messed up the time (big surprise there, I had numerical confusion) and arrived after the service had started.
A few days before we flew back to England, my mom set up a playdate with some of the newest members of the Christiansen clan. We met up with Marit and her daughter Freyja at the Pt. Defiance Zoo for a drizzly day of animal gazing with our four kids.
Here are some snapshots of our trip to Washington. Lena was a trooper and for the most part, was up for whatever. We had some nice, relaxing mornings with my parents before they went to work/sleep. They're on opposite work schedules so we had to get in our visits early [...]
The weather has steadily stayed around freezing thus making it slightly miserable to be outdoors. Nevertheless, we decided to venture out last weekend to another National Trust site called Anglesey Abbey. The plan was to tour the house (an indoor activity) but we ended up taking a walk through the gardens first.
On the recommendation of a friend, I've discovered two great new things that I'm pretty excited about. The first is a "secret" park and the second is Mr. Melody's Music Class (and Mr. Melody himself).
We've received a few care packages over the past several weeks and I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has sent us boxes of goodies. While most of the gifts were for Lena, I was still excited to open them and see what was inside. She thoroughly enjoyed the boxes they were delivered in while I have been having fun dressing her up in her new clothes.
