Washington, D.C

Thanks to a little piggy-backing on the husband's work trip, we were able to have a fabulous weekend in DC last week! It was a perfect 2-day whirl through the city, and it couldn't have been any more fun!

Day one was our museum day. We hit up Lincoln's Waffles, The Holocaust Memorial Museum (favorite - such a harrowing experience, and we even got to meet a concentration camp survivor who was volunteering there), the National Gallery of Art, the Museum of Natural History, and dinner/Jazz in the Sculpture Gardens. The bike exchange (also favorite) made it so fun to get around the downtown area.

Day two was our monument day. We saw the White House, the Washington Monument, the WWII Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Vietnam Memorial. We also rented paddle boats to see the Jefferson, MLK, and FDR memorials. That night, we ran the National Mall - a little over 4 miles and we got to see so many of those iconic places all lit up (final favorite)! I highly recommend it if you like running in new places.

Good food, cool sights, a nice run, and my favorite person.... what a lovely trip :)
