Happy Halloween

The video clip above was shot on Halloween as Max the Weatherman was reporting on Hurricane Jarrett. During the broadcast, he was interrupted by a surprise guest who apparently got lost on her way to grandma's and ended up in the middle of Category 4 storm.

Here are some more photos of the kids from Halloween 2008.

DC Vacation Photos & Video

Max and Molly at the National Zoo

We took the kids to DC this week while Max is tracked out from year-round school. The main event was Max and I going to Max's first ever US National Team soccer game, a World Cup qualifier betwen the US and Cuba, which the US won handily 6-1.

While in town, we also checked out the National Zoo, the new Udvar-Hazy National Air and Space Museum out at Dulles airport, the Natural History Museum, and the National Mall. We also saw a neat performance by Hakim, a star from the Dutch version of Sesame Street, as part of the Kids Euro Festival that was going on this week in DC.

On the way out of town, we stopped at IKEA at Potomac Mills and loaded up the van. Now I'm going to be putting together modular Swedish furniture for at least a week!

I posted a number of pictures from the trip and a few videos from the soccer match in this set over at Flickr.

My favorite photo from the trip is this one...of Molly praying for our government. It could use all the help it can get right now, don't you think?
