Summer visitors: Aug. 2009 Matt & Laura & girls!

We had an awesome visit from our nephew, Matt, his wife, Laura, and their two girls, Claire & Alyssa!! They were here for almost a week. They were able to see friends, and we got to play tour guides with them!

Air & Space Museum at Dulles airport

Claire wanted Uncle Dan to explain how the shuttles work!

We took turns landing the space shuttle in the simulator- harder than it looks, isn't it guys?? Dont' crash!!!

Claire & Alyssa; best buds!

Of course the standard White House photo!

At the Smithsonian American History Museum, Claire got to help unfold the American flag, Uncle Dan invented some new eye glasses, and we had fun in the Inventor's Lab!

Of course the day wouldn't be complete without taking a ride on the carousel on the Mall (built in 1967) Claire loved it, Alyssa wasn't so sure :)

When we met Uncle Dan for lunch, the girls just flew at him!

It was SO hot, the girls took a quick cool off run at the Iwo Jima memorial

Our neighborhood pool was a hit!

Another great visit!!

This looks like sooo much fun, I'm so sad that we missed out. Looks like you all had a great time! I can't believe how big the girls have gotten, and that they just get cuter and cuter!! ;)

Ps, dad...the Adidas outfit looks awesome!
