Keepin' Up with the Halls allows family and friends to keep in touch with us in our new location, Maryland. Updates and pictures will help us stay linked to those we care about in different parts of the US.
Kari and I went to the circus with her preschool class on March 9. We rode the light rail downtown to the arena. Kari was very excited about the circus and I realized that I hadn't been to the circus since I was about her age (bad Momma never took Josh to the circus?!).
Kari is ready for the Circus of Dreams to get started!
Kari with her $10 cotton candy and floppy hat. I did not get a picture of the $9 snow cone in a clown cup, though.
Kari enjoyed all of the animals and the different tricks they could do. Tigers were pretty cool.
The elephants did a hip hop routine. We were pretty amazed when this one stood on its head. That is a lot of elephant to balance.
The cyclists in the sphere were pretty neat, too, but very loud. I still can not believe there were 7 in there at the same time.
The whole idea behind the theme of the circus was to dream big and you can be whatever you want to be - they "picked" a "family" from the audience and they each became a part of the circus. Kari said she would want to dance or be a tightrope walker in the circus. Her class performed a circus at the end of the month (pics posted later) and she got to be a dancer.
On Cody's birthday weekend, Amy and Angie came for a visit. Rick, Cody, Amy and Angie went snowtubing on Friday in PA. Rick left his camera on the bus, so was unable to capture photos of Cody's mad snowtubing skillz.

On Saturday, Cody, Amy and Angie headed to Washington, D.C. to see the Capitol and some of the other historical sites.
Cody and Aunt Angie matched their clothes so they would not get lost in D.C. Just kidding. They just happened to be dressed alike.

On Sunday, we had cake and icecream and opened presents after a lunch at Mikie's.

He's really not
"84", but we didn't have a '1' and '2' for "12", so
we used "8+4" instead!*
Over Super Bowl weekend, we celebrated the family birthdays at the Wyatt's house. Here are a few pictures.
*I have no idea why some of the pics are so small, but I didn't feel like resizing them, so, yeah.
