Jamie had a week of training in DC that just happened to be the same week as our 20th anniversary so I went with him. While he was in class all day I wandered all over the place (I walked well over 40 miles that week).
I went to the Renwick Gallery. I love that place. The art is really unique.
Down by the White House there was a dancing Trump clown. Between him and the various random protesters (including the octogenarian anti-NRA crowd), it was like a party over there.
I went to National Geographic and lunch with my sister. I am no good at taking selfies.
DC is beautiful.
I found everything Truman related in the American History Museum.
I went to the Smithsonian Castle. Somehow I never realized they have a random collection of stuff there.
I met an on-line friend at the Natural History Museum one day.
Jamie and I went to see Oceans 8 the Thursday it came out. That was also the day the Caps won the Stanley Cup. Without realizing, we got tickets at the theater right next to where the Caps play. There was a vast sea of fans in red out on the street there. It was amazing (and extra amazing when the Caps won not long after we finished watching the movie).
I went to the Air and Space Museum. It’s a lot smaller than I remember from when I was a kid. I went to see a show in the planetarium. That was really cool.
I went to the Sculpture Garden. This has always been my very favorite sculpture.
We went to visit my aunt. It was so nice to see her.
We moved to a hotel in Virginia the last few days. I was sitting there reading one day when the fire alarm went off. It was a false alarm, but I got to stand out in the drizzling rain and cold while the fire department cleared us to go back inside.
We flew home after 10 days away. It was nice to be back in San Antonio.
As part of their bedtime routine, I tuck stuffed animals in with the boys. I picked out these adorable little bears to bring back to them. They love them.
I think Lola was the happiest to have us home. The last few days we were gone she got sadder and sadder and was quite listless. She wouldn’t let me out of her sight for a couple days after I got home!
