About a month ago we had the opportunity to go to Washington DC for one of Aaron's good friend's wedding. We figured since neither of us had been back there that we should spend some time and see everything. Well, I am pretty sure that unless you live out there you will never truly be able to see everything. But still... we tried. We absolutely loved all the history and gained a lot deeper respect for our country. It was a beautiful city. However, I wouldn't say this was one of those vacations where you go to relax. The city pace was 100x faster than our little town, traffic was 200x slower, and there were a million things to fit into one short week.
Some stops along the way...
THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL & WASHINGTON MONUMEMT
SLEPT THROUGH AN UNEVENTFUL CRAPPY FENCED VIEW OF THE WHITE HOUSE (which was the biggest letdown of the trip)
WENT TO THE SMITHSONIANS
AND THE ZOO
WENT TO THE TEMPLE
AND RAN A RACE IN DOWNTOWN DC
We did and saw so much more than this, but these were just some quick highlights. I would definitely recommend if you haven't ever visited there, YOU SHOULD!
