Did I Mention We Saw the President


George W that is. Hayley knew a friend of a friend that got us on the lawn of the white house to stalk the President. That's what I felt like at least. We stood outside his front door on the lawn with all the snipers in the freezing cold to catch a glimpse of his majesty as he boarded his helicopter to get out of town for Thanksgiving. At least we weren't alone. Lots of people showed up for the grand event. Although I mock the reality of what we did, it was cool to see him at his cool house. I really enjoyed standing on the lawn of the white house. Such a cool place. I must have seen at least a thousand pictures of it and now I'm in one of them!

Kaci fell asleep waiting for the helicopter and slept through the landing and takeoff. Holding her for so long (we were there for like 2 1/2 hours) was ruff, but at least I didn't have to endure the blasting frigid winds of the helicopter. Brad and Kevin chivalrously stood in front of me so Kaci wouldn't get blasted.
