Great Weekend...Bad News

This past weekend we went out to DC to see Marks brother Andrew and his wife Antoanela be sealed in the temple. She wasn't a member when they got married, was baptized 2 years ago, and they were sealed on Saturday, January 24. Their two little girls were also sealed to them and I loved being able to see those little babys with their parents. It made it more of a reality that my munchkins are sealed to me as well. It was a very special day.

Marks dad is back from Iraq for 2 weeks so it was great to be able to see him and spend a few days with him. What a great Papa he is and we are so grateful for all that he does for us. We all went to the Air and Space Museum in DC and it was fun listening to him explain some of the things that they use over in Iraq that were on display there. Josh was fascinated by all the "big planes" as he called them!

If you are wondering why there are no pictures...thats the bad news! We all stayed in some condos in Old Town Alexandria for the weekend and they had a pool, so of course all of the cousins want to go swimming. Well Josh, thinking he is a fish, got a little too brave and Mark ended up having to go in after him. The camera was with him. And that was that. Josh was saved...the camera was sitting on the bottom of the pool. All our pictures are gone. I am sad. We had a lot that I hadn't put on the computer yet and then all of the ones from the weekend. So it ended up being a much more expensive weekend then we had planned! But thats okay. Things happen! We laugh about it later!!

So until we get a new posts will be lacking pictures! We had a great weekend though and loved being with Marks entire family for such a special occasion!
