brandon and i just got back from an absolutely amazing vacation in washington dc. neither of us had been, so it was a new city for us to explore! a close friend from high school lives there (with her adorable dog mabel!), and was generous enough to allow us to crash at her beautiful place for the week. it was such a special vacation! the opportunity to investigate dc and spend time with an old friend was priceless–not to mention the fantastic warm weather!–i was in heaven.
day 1 consisted of: the washington monument, the holocaust museum, the world war ii memorial, the lincoln memorial, the vietnam memorial, and the white house
in summary, our day (this is our streamlined route–there was inevitably some wandering, and some weaving looking for lunch, etc.)
