Playing in the gardens on Capitol Hill

Take your child to work day!

Today was Take Your Child to Work Day! The Senate invited staff children to work today, and there was a big reception sponsored by PBS kids. Clifford, Curious George and a few others were there to take pictures with the kids. William was not the least bit interested in that part which was fine considering the line was long! We took him to have a photograph with the Senator and back to Dan's office to explore the drawers and throw a few pens around. We set out for downtown this morning with our favorite neighbors, Carrie and Ava. Carrie's husband is also on Capitol Hill, so we made it an adventure together. Ava is like William's sister. He doesn't know life without her! She sticks up for him at the playground and they love to chase each other around. We rode the metro which is a pretty uneventful journey once you master where the elevators are located. We zipped right on and the kids were wide eyed as the trains flew by down the tracks. The kids were picture perfect the whole way! Our day was complete with a trip to the Nordstom's Cafe for lunch with the beautiful people.

Today we had a rain storm. After several hours indoors and bored of his parents, William was ready to get down and dirty in the water. So, we suited up and took to the puddles. All water (sans stream) was fair game for the adventure. Needless to say, he had a BIG time! He was knee high in water at one point, splashed his heart out, and threw some sticks in the stream by the house. I couldn't get any stream pics since I was holding onto his wrist and holding my breath that he wouldn't fall in! There is something special about being outside with a happy, soaking wet toddler that made me care less about the rain pouring down on my face and the fact that my socks were sloshing around in my shoes! Little boys are a blast!

My Daddy, the Energy Man

Last Friday, I took William downtown on the metro (his first subway ride with hand sanizer in tow) to see Dan's new office in the Senate EPW Committee. He had a great time walking the halls of the Senate offices and exploring Daddy's new digs. I must admit that for a few moments, I missed the rhythm of D.C. and working on the Hill. Then I looked down at my little man, and I was over it.

Four Generations

We had lots of fun last week when Bebe, Mac and Meme came to town! It is quite a blessing to have 4 generations of the same family together. These are certainly moments we treasure and memories we will keep close to our hearts.

Bloggin' with the Barrons

Greetings friends! Welcome to the world of The Barron Family. We're busy living life in Washington, D.C.!

The last four years as "Team Barron" have been filled with many adventures, including the most exciting ride of our lives - Parenthood. We just enjoyed William's second Easter Egg Roll at the White House, and saw the pretty cherry blossoms surrounding our pal, Thomas Jefferson.

We hope you will visit our site often!
