Nate's neices held a birthday party for him this last friday. He even got a birthday crown. We had dinner and cake, then the girls got put to bed with a babysitter and the grown-ups went to indiana jones. We stayed that night in warrenton with sara and her family. We love playing with the girls and spending time with Sara and Hans. That's probably one of my very most favorite things about being here.
Sara delivering the cake-way too many candles Nate!

Here is the view looking into the Rotunda where the Declaration, Bill of Rights, etc are kept. The Rotunda is a really beautiful room; this pic definitely does not do it justice. There are hugs murals on the side of the wall that are of Washington, Jefferson, and lots of others, then the ceiling is a huge vaulted area. It's just really cool.
Sorry if the pictures are a bit hard to see. You can't have a flash on your camera, because it can destroy these very important pieces of paper, and it's pretty dark inside the Rotunda. All of the articles are underneath VERY thick glass, too (just like National Treasure!). It feels so surreal to see these stuff, it's real! I love every minute of it.
We ended our night going to this really cool little restaurant called Cosi's. It has cute mismatched furniture, and yummy hearth baked food. The absolute very best part is that you can order S'mores for dessert and they bring you an open flame to make your own. See look!
SO Nate's smile was a bit overdone, but I was truly that excited to be making S'mores in the restaurant! It was so cool. We're thinking Cosi's would do very well in Logan...
This Friday we have a ward talent night that we are looking forward to attending and getting to know members of our ward a little more. Our friends Clark and Kathy had us over for games last night and we had another blast. We love all of the new games they are teaching us and we really love spending time with them. They've invited us to ride up to the Temple with them this saturday; our stake is having a Temple excursion and we are so happy to be attending. As always, this week just started, but I can't wait for it to be over so we can have another weekend!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DEAR FRIEND CHRIS AT LOGAN CURVES! I love and miss you, girl. Hope you have a FABULOUS day!
