Washington DC Day 2 - Part 1

We are having a wonderful time in DC. Today began with a bit of a hiccup. Our 9 year old daughter went to bed complaining of a stomach ache. After laying awake most of the night, she threw up around 6 am. She doesn't feel too bad, but still doesn't want to eat. Henry took the two other girls out this morning, while the 9 year and I stayed in the hotel room.

Henry's brother Derek drove up from Lynchburg, Virginia, with his 3 oldest daughters. Henry, Derek and the 5 girls went to go see the sights while I'm staying in the hotel room with our 9 year old. She's perking up now, so I hope tomorrow it, whatever it was, will have passed.

She's really enjoying the cable TV. Animal Planet and HG TV have been a real hit. I'm not sure what HG stands for, but they have shows like "Design on a Dime" and other home management type shows. I'm glad that my kids want to watch shows like that instead of Disney or Cartoon Network.

I would be having fun if I could get to the TV. That's one of the reasons we don't have cable TV at home. I would turn into coach potato and my life would fall apart. There are so many good things to watch but even good things can waste valuable time.

Henry and the rest should be back by bedtime. Then Henry can post an update on what they saw today.

More of our trip

The 'HG', in HG TV is an abbreviated form of 'Home & Garden'.
