Stop the truck right this second. You came to DC. I would have driven over. Just to meet the boys. : ).

I love your coats. That is what Kaish wears all winter. That and some shorts. : )

Hahaha, Becky, I was thinking the same thing about the coats! Ben is still in t-shirt and shorts. Hoping the hoodie is coming. Susan, it's fun to see fall through your lens! I can't wait to see the rest of this. The time for our family DC trip can't be too many years off!
