White House Easter Egg Roll!!!

The title says it all! We were super lucky to snag tickets to this year's event and we had a great time! 2 hours went way too fast, but we hunted eggs, rolled eggs, and watched some of the kids' favorite Disney Channel performers. We ended the day at Olde Bay Tavern in North Beach for an amazing meal. Awesome day!
First stop--the egg hunt.  Trent rocked!
Look!  It's the Powers family on the South Lawn!

She's really excited (so was I!)

Home again

Bittersweet day...returning "home" after a great time with the family. It's nice to be back so we can de-salt and de-grime the boat, hunt for Easter Eggs, and get ready to head to the White House tomorrow, but I'd be just as happy hanging out at an anchorage, many more days away from returning to work. We sailed for a few hours today before it just got too gusty. 20-25kts greeted us as we tried to dock, but the Captain parked with ease. And the breezy egg hunt was a success!

Full sail (for a little bit!)
Underway rigging work (we're watching way too much Volvo Ocean Race coverage).

The hunt is on!
