We marched for babies...


this year at the national March for Life in DC. 

It was a rainy cold day but a wonderful experience for our family. We had a fun family weekend swimming in the hotel pool, visiting some museums and monuments.
 
Paddy Cakes first time swimming. I love swimming with little babies. They love to float.


the kids loved staying in the hotel and warming up at this neat warm fire in the lobby. Did I mention it was freezing rain during our stay.



We went to mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and spent some time exploring the church's beautiful treasures.

We visited the Museum of natural History to check out the dinosaur bones and the Air and Space museum to see jets and spaceships. What more could a little boy ask for.


This was the way we traveled, in two double strollers. One is a bike trailer/double jogger we have had for years. We recently invested in another double jogger so we could take whole family walks and runs. It is awesome. We got a Baby Jogger Summit double. We have a glider board that attaches on the back for a child to stand on and the front foot board is solid v cloth so a child can cruise on the front if necessary for a while too. So really this stroller can at any given moment carry all 4 of our children. Side note - one of the two big kids can actually stand on teh glider board when I run, so it's sort of a triple jogging stroller too.
