The parade of friends-like-family visitors to DC continues. We had the most fantastic time with the Reynolds this weekend. Harper got to meet her soon-to-be idols, Kip and Magnolia, and there was much snuggling, hearts-playing, bonding with "Bruneee" - Mags' first love in the Fernandez household - and DC adventuring had by all. There were also many firsts for Harper - including metro riding, visiting the Natural History Museum and (chilly, gusty) strolling along the Mall. Watching Mags' and Kip's interest - and at times delight - at the small mammal house, the human evolution exhibit, and the MLK monument was such a fun window into the times we have ahead with Harper (to give credit where credit is due, Kip was truly a little intellectual sponge on this visit! Mags got a kick out of a thing or two here and there, too). We are so lucky to have such amazing kids destinations on our doorstep in this city.
Mostly, though, I'm so happy that Harper has come to know another super special family in our lives.
