Hi friends! Greetings from Washington, DC! I am having an absolutely amazing time with my friend Melody!
This city is fabulous. Today we walked over 15 miles….yes, miles. Do the math. Ouch. To say that we were ambitious is perhaps an understatement. But wow we saw a lot. Check it out:
This was actually taken on the night we arrived. We were eager to see the White House so we headed down there pretty much as soon as we were finished dinner. I even saw Obama.
We are buds now.
Then we walked down to get a peek at the Washington Monument at night too. So pretty.
Today we were up bright and early as we wanted to do SO many things. First stop was some food. Check out this amazing room Stampin’ Up! has booked for our breakfasts. Whoa!
This whole hotel is stunning actually. Stampin’ Up! spoils us.
Then we were off. Here’s our day of sightseeing in a nutshell:
|Natural History Museum
|Elephant in the lobby of the Natural History Museum
|Hey look! This guy must be a relative of my dog Chapman. Same amazing ears. 🙂
|World War II Memorial – with the Washington Monument in the background.
|Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool
|Inside the Lincoln Memorial
|Washington Monument and Reflecting Pool
|Korean War Memorial
|Sunset at the Washington Monument, looking back at the Lincoln Memorial
After the Capitol Building we were STARVING and went on the hunt for food, and what a hunt it was. Let’s just say that we walked a heck of a lot more.
We are off to soak our feet. So much more to see tomorrow. Thanks so much to Stampin’ Up!, my customers, and downline for this amazing trip!
