Library of Congress

Today we visited the Library of Congress to take a look at Autumn's grandma's genealogy book about their family history. We got our library cards, walked about 10 miles through underground tunnels, passed by the Mason workshop, and arrived at the books! (Which are not readily available at the LOC!!) It was super-fun and we got a little taste of home!
The book!

The researcher~!

Oh yeah, she's famous!

1983 called, they want their hairstyles back!

Yep, Library of Congress, baby!

Family crest!

Niagara Falls

Our one day trip to Niagara was really fun. It was so relaxing to just walk, drink and gamble in the exotic land of Canada!

Why does every Canadian city have a fake Space Needle?
The real deal....Niagara!
The Niagara Sky Wheel...of DOOM!
Ok, maybe it was the Skywheel of boredom!
I liked it!

Camping in Pennsylvania

This Friday, we braved the Washington DC rush hour traffic to start on the long trek to Niagara Falls. We camped overnight in Shawnee State Park, Mann's Choice, Pennsylvania.
