trip to Virginia

We had a blast visiting Uncle Dan and Aunt Amy in Virginia. It was the kids first time to go to their house and the ABsolutely loved it! We saw "Up", and visited the National Zoo, National Aquarium (in Baltimore), and Mount Vernon (home of George Washington). We also spent lots of time hanging out at their house - playing Wii Lego Star Wars, getting addicted to Fieldrunner (on Dan's iTouch), cutting out paper dolls, playing with their sweet dog Dixie, and eating! In true Barrett fashion, the guys even managed to squeeze in a home improvement project, likely setting a record for shortest home improvement project ever! They fixed a gutter drainage problem in the backyard and didn't even have to go back to Home Depot or run into any problems - amazing! :) Aunt Amy and Uncle Dan even had a birthday celebration for Daniel's 6th birthday. We had a blast and can't wait to go back again!!
