But this is one trip that I wish I had stored in the archives and I could pull out this post for a weekend and look at.
We went to visit Bigbad's cousins in early 2007 (OMG that was way too long ago) to visit their firstborn. He was one month old at the time. (OMG. That kid is in school now).
Having never been to D.C. I was pretty dang excited, the I-want-to-drink-in-the-whole-world kind of excited. I wanted to see the entire city. Marmie had even given me a map of Art in D.C. I had circled no less than a dozen places that I wanted to see. I was ridiculously eager.
So the fact that it was February and freakishly cold was not going to stop me from going out and at least seeing some of those circled spots. We went to the Mall (which gets this stuck in my head). Back to solemnity, we visited the National Mall and spent a bit of time at the Vietnam Memorial and Lincoln Memorial.
Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
I hope I get the chance to go back. Bigbad has some opportunities that might have him traveling to Washington D.C., so my fingers are crossed that I can visit again. Maybe when it isn't so freakin' cold.
I link up to these parties.
