The kids were hesitant at first, but they really liked the Danish National Treat.
Then we headed to the UK Embassy.
A Rolls Royce, some Bentleys, Land Rovers, Jaguars... Beautiful cars on display.
What a day!

In DC, you get used to motorcades of dignitary's heading to and from the White House. I figured I would take a quick video and share it.

Carson has really been working hard on his Boy Scout work. At the Court of Honor, he received an astounding 12 merit badges and two rank advancements. Congratulations Carson!

Savannah asked, "Can I use the sled?" I got it for her and a few minutes later she was in the drive way "fishing" in her "boat". A few minutes later Tucker joined her.
They probably spent 15-20 minutes fishing.

Angela and I celebrated our birthdays recently. Angela had a turtle frozen custard cake (carmel, chocolate, nuts) on top of layers of frozen custard and vanilla cake. It was delicious.
Angela made me a Lemon Jello cake that tasted so good! We also went out to dinner at a nice steak / seafood place.
We're not sure where that missing section of the cake went. We brought it home and some of it just disappeared before we actually had the birthday party! (just kidding, it looked too good)

The boys have been fascinated with robots recently, so they have checked our every relevant book from the library, studied, designed, saved up money, purchased parts, and have begun building their robots.
It amazes me how much they have learned about electronics and the role of each component. They are designing their robots from scratch (without a kit or any instructions) and so far are doing pretty well. They have even been researching how to program the robots once they are built.

It was 'Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day' a couple of weeks ago, so all three kids went with me. We took the subway into the city, then walked a few blocks to my office.
The office had pizza, chips, soda and juice, candy, and cupcakes for the kids to enjoy while they observed what there parents do. The kids had a great time and left thinking what a fun place work. I had to explain to them that it wasn't exactly a typical day in the office, but the people really are nice.
The cupcakes were delicious, but most of the kids there didn't seem to care for them.

Carson's artwork on my glass desktop. It describes how electricity flows from the ground, to the power plant, to the electronics on my computer.
