Mom and Robin in Maryland

My mom and Robin flew home on Sunday after spending a few days here visiting. It was heaven. I just loved having them here. They are my people. Living so far from "home," it was definitely like having "home" come to me. 

They endured many games of Trouble and Uno. 

Thursday was their first full day here. We didn't waste a minute and spent part of the morning at the National Museum of American History. I think the highlight was seeing the almost 200 year old American flag that inspired the Star Spangled Banner.

We also loved the collection of gowns worn by all the First Ladies over the years.

It was a cool day, but perfect for November. We really lucked out with the weather during their entire visit.

On Friday I cancelled a dentist appointment (hehe), and we headed to Georgetown for the morning. Our first stop was Baked and Wired, a bakery and coffee shop that gets rave reviews. We loved it as well. Emmy ate her weight in cupcakes.

We had to stop for a piece of pizza to balance out all the sugar we ate. Makes sense right? That's why I love these two, they think like I do.

We mostly walked and explored, but we did a little shopping at TJ Maxx. Our excursion was the perfect little taste of Georgetown.

So fun Jess! Glad they got to visit. Plan on making another trip to the cupcake place when I'm there!

I'm so happy for you that you got to have them out. Having family visit gives such a boost. Looks like it was a perfect trip.
