Weekend Update - Good Friday

Last Friday, I took the day off of work to spend time with my extended family. Little Miss and I met Mom, Dad, Sister, Nephew, Aunt, Uncle and Youngest Cousin in the city. We first went to Madame Tussauds. Little Miss posed with Teddy Roosevelt's teddy bear, Bob Woodward, Calvin Coolidge, astronauts, and other wax figures. I think she was unimpressed, but she was a good girl.
After the wax museum, we all went to Union Station for a late lunch.  Little Miss wanted plain pasta and, by the time I came back with it, she had fallen asleep.  She did eat a little and woke up in time to get into a cab  and head to the White House.  The cousin wanted to see it so we took a cab.  Most of the back of the White House was hidden by the Egg Roll setup, but we got to see the front of the White House which I haven't seen in awhile.  The weather was absolutely beautiful (NOT) and Little Miss stole my umbrella so I got a tad bit damp.
Later, we made it back to Mom and Dad's house. The kids ate dinner and played while the adults got take out. It was a nice evening, but we all welcomed bedtime! In the morning, Aunt took Little Miss downstairs and gave me some extra sleep which I definitely appreciated. Then, there was a nap and an Easter scavanger hunt. We dyed eggs and made sock puppets. Plus, at one point, Little Miss was in the other room. I thought she was hanging out with Mom, but it turns out, she was having a tea party with the cat. Poor kitty was just trying to take a nap and he was being force fed tea.
Husband came out for dinner with my side of the family and then we head home to prepare for Easter at our place with the In-Laws.
