Today we went into Washington D.C. It was gloomy and drizzly most of the day, but we made the best of it. Lisa hadn’t been here since eighth grade so she needed to see all the major sights.
But, before we went someone went on a DD run!
And we had to have breakfast. Kristin has a ton of different kinds of cereal that I added to my yogurt. She even had Kashi granola, which I love!
Then, it was on to sightseeing! We hit up the Lincoln Memorial…
This really never gets old. Every time I come here I am just in awe of the amazing people that worked so hard and did so much for this country.
The Jefferson Memorial is a good one too. Every time I come to this one there is a Ranger giving a great talk. I love that they are so animated and love their job.
Snack – Lisa and I shared a soft pretzel. We needed fuel from walking around so long.
I also had some carrots and pepper strips at the Washington Monument.
Then, we hit up the White House.
It was a fun day!
And Matt tried to take over the White House
Lunch –We went to the Abbot Grill for lunch. By this time we were beyond hungry so we scarfed down the bread before I felt the need to take a picture.
I ordered the crab cake. It came with jicama-apple slaw and asparagus with a lemon aioli. What is up with my new found crush on crab cakes?
Then, it was back to the sights! We hit up the Korean War Memorial.
And the World War II Memorial. This is probably the newest monument.
It was so great to hang out with Lisa this weekend. We hadn’t seen each other for almost a year. One should never wait that long to see friends.
After a long day of sightseeing a big dinner was needed, okay wanted. We made veggie burgers and sweet potato fries. I also had coleslaw from yesterday. While we cooked I munched on chips and salsa.
Dessert. I am watching the last LOST and am freaking out! I am eating cake to dull the pain.
I will leave you with one of my favorite pictures of the day…
