DC, Part 1

Thanks to a crazy rainstorm on Sunday afternoon, my trip back east was extended a day. The whole drive to the airport I may or may not have been wishing for an extended vacation. Wish granted, at least for me. John had to get back for school and there was only one seat left, ask me if I was sad about this?  It just meant I got to have a sleep over with just me and my sister. Just like old times, only better!

Here's a little peak at what the first half of our trip looked like:
Visited the DC temple.
Thanks sister for letting me borrow your clothes when my bags got lost.

 
 Got caught it lot's of good rain storms
 Side note: Our hair is wet, not greasy, just thought I should make that clear.

 A capital tour by the one and only...

she even let us sneak into the capital press room,
sign of a great tour guide!

Expressing our true feelings for where we live

 Devoured an amazing meal.
Good Stuff Eatery, need I say more?

The first few nights were spent hanging out at our favorite spot...

Oh, I miss it already!

 
 Breaking and entering,
Sometimes my ideas aren't always the best,
and we'll leave it at that.

 Mock bike ride through the city

Paid our respect at Arlington Cemetery

I don't feel like you can be a true tourist until you ride the metro,
So, I made sure we experience the joy that is public transportation. 
 
 
 And the first half of our trip ended with food and ice cream in Old Town.

The first half of our trip was fabulous, and it only got better after that.

P.S. I'll announce the winner of the giveaway tomorrow, stay tuned!

If you would have stayed one more day, you could have been here for the earthquake! Come back!

P.S. I'm curious about the story behind the "breaking and entering" photo.

Don't worry, Cynthia, when I said it just got better, you were still with us on the better part. :)
