the journey begins

The journey begins…Abby, Erica, Maya (Erica is 8 months pregnant with Maya Lynn), and I got up early this morning to begin our journey from Hartford, Connecticut to Washington DC for the inauguration. First stop, 5:30AM, Dunkin Donuts for coffee.

A few thoughts from the early morning.

“This is so much nicer than a bus.” Abby, who was initially going on Greyhound.

“I’m so excited that my daughter will grow up in a world where this has always been possible.” Erica, due in early March.

“First California and Texas volunteering in the primaries, then Vegas for the election and now DC. I’m thrilled to be going.” Erin, who is really excited to be posting this via iPhone from the car.

inauguration bound

I’m so excited to report that I will be attending the inauguration of Barack Obama!

I am hoping that I will be able to post updates here, from the event itself, via my iPhone. I’m also hoping to be able to post photos as they happen. We’ll see how it works, but check back on inauguration day for updates…
