The three of us just spent three fun filled days in Washington DC. We got to stay with some friends from our time there and it made our trip so much better, so thanks again Matt and Deidre! It was Lincoln's first trip to our nation's capital, so, of course, we had to see all the classic sights.
Like the Capital Building...
And the Washington Monument...Here's me trying to get a picture of Lincoln by himself. This will be much easier when he can sit up on his own... There are a lot of these pictures, but this is definitely the funniest expression.
We visited the Museum of American History for the first time since it was closed for renovations when we spent the summer there two years ago. My favorite part was seeing Julia Child's kitchen, although we heard a few people say, "Oh this is the lady in that new movie, right?" Sigh....
There was also a little Abraham Lincoln exhibit, so of course we had to take a bunch of pictures of our Lincoln there.
And we had to head down to the Lincoln Memorial for some pictures!
Our baby was such a trooper during the whole trip, which was so great. And even though we had to spend the better part of an hour inching past twelve miles of cones blocking the right lane in Pennsylvania and subsequently getting a nail in a tire to get there (not to mention moving at a snail's pace to get out of the city in bumper to bumper traffic yesterday), I'm sure we'll be making the trek again in the not too distant future. It was so fun being back there... we love DC!
