Happy New Year 2013!

The Herrons have continued to explore the Washington, DC area during the second year of our tour. Highlights of 2012 included:
We extended our range outside of the Beltway, visiting Williamsburg, Monticello, Great Falls, Shenandoah, West Virginia, as well as South Bass Island (Ohio), New York City, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. Erik took a quick trip to Ukraine to observe the October elections. We also saw family and friends in Kansas, Ohio, and Michigan, including a wonderful day at our friends Todd and Diane's wedding.

We have watched Carter thrive this year. He truly loves our adventures, from visiting nearly all of the Smithsonian museums to climbing mountains in Shenandoah. He really enjoys his school, and is busy outside of school with piano, running (in addition to several 5Ks, he ran his first 8K this year), soccer, student council, and just playing with friends and with us.

More than the places we visited, we enjoyed spending time together as a family and with the incredible friends we have made over the last couple of years.

We wish everyone a healthy and happy 2013!
