We Love You, D.C.!

We took a nice short but sweet trip to Washington, D.C. this past weekend for Lauren's birthday.  We tried our best to get in as many sights as we could running from one location to the next.  It wasn't easy in the rain but we had our umbrellas and we braved the yucky weather.

We got there on Friday afternoon and first hit the war memorials and Lincoln's Memorial.

Next stop was the Reflection Pond without any water :( and the Washington Monument.

Saturday was filled with the Smithsonian Natural History Museum and the American History Museum.  Notice Lauren posing with Dorothy's red slippers.

On Sunday we hit the Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art, and the Smithsonian Castle.

We then finished off our trip with a walk through Bethesda, MD and look what I found.

I'm guessing the kiddo had a great time because she asked if we could move there.  :)  Although, I think one of the major highlights for her was the indoor pool at the hotel.  Silly girl!

Keep an eye out for the giveaway.  I know you girls have been so patient.  It's coming soon!


  1. Wow, you guys did a lot, how cool. I haven't played tourist in DC much, need to do that. Have fun! Riki

  2. What a lovely girl she is! I especially like the picture of her under the umbrella and the ducks in the 'reflecting' pond. Enjoy the day! Erin

  3. Super birthday trip! I love all the photos...makes me ready to move back there. I'm ready to call those sights home. :)

  4. Looks like you all had a good time!

  5. Hey Leslie, you were in my neck of the woods! I am glad to hear you had a great time. Rain or shine, it's a fun place to visit..and live:)

  6. We took Nick to D.C. when he was in 3rd grade and we had so much fun. There is so much to see and do. My favorite was the National zoo.

  7. You squeezed a lot in for a couple of days! D.C. is one of our favorite places to visit as well. Looks like you girls had a lot of fun.
