Little travels with a little baby

Gus took his first flight last weekend for a trip to Washington, D.C. (See the little airplane on his outfit :) He is our youngest flyer so far at 2 1/2 months but was a piece of cake on the plane. He slept the whole way on both flights. I even brought a book on the plane . . . and read it. I don't remember the last time I did that!

We were in Washington for a meeting that Rhett's mom was chairing for families of POW/MIAs from Vietnam. We got to spend time with Rhett's family and since Rhett was feeling under the weather we spent some nice quiet time in our room with a nice quiet baby who looked like this most of the time . . .
We had so much fun hanging out with Gus alone for the first time since he was about 3 days old. We even took in a few sights. We had heard about the new Capitol Visitor Center which cost $$,$$$,$$$ so we thought we'd like to see where our tax dollars are going.

The visitor center was very nice. I'm not sure worth the pricetag but nice just the same. Gus was seemingly unimpressed with the whole deal . . .
But he was a lovely travel companion and we had a great trip. Oh I almost forgot! We saw the President! We went to see the military parade at the Marine Barracks and the President was the guest of honor. I was standing about 15 feet from him and Michelle (although there were several secret service and a few Marines between us) as he left the Barracks. It was interesting to see the whole Secret Service scene with snipers and the whole nine yards. Of course none of us had our cameras for the Presidential sighting. Oh well. I'm not a fan of him or his politics but it is still exciting to see the President!
