I've just uploaded some photos to share with you from our D.C. trip. Unfortunately, we missed the cherry blossoms. In fact, I think the festival still went on without them blooming!
We visited Georgetown one afternoon. During our stroll down "M" street, we ran into Georgetown Cupcake. I said to Grace, "Look at this cute little cupcake shop!" In unison, my kids said, "Mom! It's DC cupcakes!~you know the show on TV?" I guess I have heard of it, but I have never seen it, so I didn't put two and two together! Grace is holding a book.... one of her highlights was visiting a used bookstore in Georgetown with her Dad. They like to go to used bookstores together on their "one on one dates".
After we crossed the street, I realized just how long the line was to get into Georgetown Cupcake. Look how far back it goes!
Highlight for the boys? Stores like Kickkspot , where they could drool over shoes. I never dreamt my boys would be so into shoes and clothes. Just look at how their faces lit up!
Grace wanted to try her hand at editing photos, so she experimented with the next one. She did a pretty good job, don't you think?
We sat there staring at this bird for the longest time. And it sat there staring at us. It is so odd. Like a mix between a pterodactyl and a very large turkey. Its head was a brilliant blue...
A Lowlight of the trip was the international spy museum. We were all less than impressed. And, it was a big waste of about $75.00
This magnolia tree was in bloom. It is magnolia, right?! Simply Beautiful.
Little did I know that I would one day grow up and raise my family nearby. I found this photo that I took of my kids when they were little in front of it...
Look how they've grown!
It is amazing to me how tall this temple is in person. The spires seem to disappear into the sky.
We enjoyed a tour of Ford's Theatre...If there is one person I would really like to meet after I die, it is Abe Lincoln. :) I loved learning all about him when we lived in Kentucky and Indiana. Did you know that he has no living descendants? His family tree no longer sprouts new growth.
